The China Compulsory Certificate mark, commonly known as CCC Mark, is a compulsory safety mark for many products imported, sold or used in the Chinese market. It became implemented on May 1, 2002. The CCC mark is administered by the CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration), and is required for 147 products in 20 product categories.
It is the result of the integration of inspection systems into a single procedure for both domestically manufactured and imported products. Products that are obliged to apply to this certification should use consistent standards, technical regulations, accreditation criteria, product catalogues, accreditation marks, and pricing standards with CCC directives before official approval process. Only products with certification and granted CCC mark can be shipped out for sales activities, import and business operations.
