What is CCC certification?

The CCC Mark (China Compulsory Certificate) is a mandatory requirement for both domestically manufactured products and products imported into China. Automotive products that require the CCC Mark include many whole, completed or incomplete vehicles that fall in the L, M and N category, as well as motorcycles in the O category and vehicle parts (e.g. seat belts, tyres, safety glass products and headlamps). The CCC certification procedure involves testing of the product itself, as well as factory inspection and the creation of documentation.

To enter the Chinese market, it is essential to obtain a CCC certificate for your automotive products.

Why is it important to obtain the CCC mark?

Manufacturers who wish to export vehicles and components to China have to obtain the CCC mark. Demonstrating compliance means:

  • Ensuring that you can sell your automotive products within the Chinese market
  • Accessing the market quickly without being denied
  • Avoiding costly recalls or product rework
  • Showing regulatory authorities, car dealerships and consumers alike that your product complies with environmental and safety legislation
