CCC Certification

CCC CertificationAny products imported, distributed or sold in China require CCC certification. By acquiring the technical assistance of experienced personnel in our Beijing office, G&M Compliance offers crucial leverage so you can release your product into the Chinese market faster.

China Compulsory Certification (CCC) is required on more than 132 product categories. Manufacturers of these product categories must obtain CCC registration before they can be imported, distributed, or sold into China. Products that do not bear a valid CCC certification mark may be held at customs and subject to excessive penalties. G&M Compliance can determine if your products require CCC certification before they are shipped.

In 2013 the Chinese government established a new certification body, China Information Security Certification Center (ISCCC). This new organization offers an alternate route to certification than the more established CQC. G&M has been developing a relationship with this new body since before their inception, and can leverage this alternate route when time to market is essential.

G&M Compliance’s Bejing office was established in 2004. Our experienced personnel in both the U.S. and China ensure a smooth testing and certification process. We track milestones within the approval process to ensure your project is on schedule from inception to completion.
