Brief Introduction to CCC
CCC is the statutory compulsory safety certification
system and the basic approach to safeguard the
consumers' rights and interests and protect the
personal and property safety.
On May 1, 2002, China CCC came into force.
As you know, not all of the products need to obtain CCC certification. Only
those listed in CCC Compulsory Catalogue need to do so before being
imported, sold and used in business activities in China.
CCC Compulsory Catalogue
• In 2002, AQSIQ and CNCA were authorized to publish the “First Catalogue of
Products Subject to CCC”.
The first catalogue covers 135 products divided into 19 categories.
• But the categories have been altered many times since its first issue.
• The current CCC catalogue contains about 150 products divided into 21 categories.
You may refer to this website:

*The category 17 Medical Devices were removed to medical devices registration system.
CCC Implementation Rules
• Each category of products has its own implementation rules. The rules indicate
product scopes, application method, required documents, testing requirements,
factory inspection requirements, mark requirements, etc.
• CNCA is authorized to administer and formulate the implementation rules of the

CCC Certification Procedure
 This is the major procedure for CCC certification
1. Application for certification
2. Type testing
3. Initial inspection of the factory
4. Evaluation of certification results and approval of certification
5. Purchasing or Printing/Impressing CCC Mark
6. Follow-up inspection
 During the whole procedure, CQC will act as a certification body to
review and approve the CCC certification.
 When the products meet all of the requirements, then CQC will issue
the CCC certificate.
Usually, a CCC certificate is valid for 5 years.

CCC Testing
 CCC requires in-country testing by one of the accredited labs.
That means the test labs must be authorized by CNCA and have
designated product testing scope.
 CCC focuses on Safety and EMC testing
Test standards are China GB standards. Most of them are identical with
or stem from IEC or other international standards.
• Safety testing based on GB 4943 (IEC 60950)
• For EMC testing based on GB 9254 (EN 55022/55024) and GB 17625
(EN 610003-2/33)
 When the testing standards updated, then the products need to apply for
updating application to update the standards on the certificate and test
report. If the applicant doesn’t do this, then the certificate will be
superseded or canceled.
CCC Initial Factory Inspection
 Initial Factory Inspection is required when a new factory or a new category
product applies for CCC certification. It focuses on the quality control system
of the factory.
 Usually, one to four inspectors will visit the factory and stay for one to four
days depending on the factory size.
 Inspection items below are for your reference:
1. interview the responsible engineers in the factory
2. review the product quality system
3. witness the Dielectric Strength and Ground Resistance tests on the product
CCC Follow Up Inspection
 Follow up inspection (Annual Factory Audit ) is for an approved product to
maintain the CCC certificate.
 This factory audits focus on the manufacturing process of a specific product
on the CCC certificate.
 It will be performed once or twice every year from the following year after
 If the follow up inspection fails, then the CCC certificate will be suspended or
CCC Mark
After the CCC certificate has been issued, the applicant must apply for the
certification mark before the products are marketed, imported, or used for
any commercial purposes.
There are two ways to apply CCC mark:
1. Purchase the printed CCC mark from CNCA , which is a standard mark with
black design on a white background in fixed sizes.
2. Apply for self-printing CCC mark on your product label, which is a nonstandard mark with different color so as to match the external color of the
product or the label. And also it can vary in sizes, but must be in proportion to
the standard marks.
CCC Mark
These are a few different types of CCC mark:
The letter on the mark reflects the type of certification.
“S” represents “Safety”
“EMC” represents “EMC”
; ;
“S & E” represents “Safety and EMC”
“F” represents “Fire Fighting”

SRRC Certification
(China Radio Type Approval)
State Radio Regulatory Commission of the People’s
Republic of China
Radio Transmission Equipment Type Approval
Ministry of Industry and Information Technology
Type Approval Identifier
The State Radio_Monitoring_Center Testing Center
Brief Introduction to China Radio Regulations
On November 1, 2010, the China Radio Regulations for Radio Transmission
Equipment was published by MIIT and came into force.
The regulations require the radio transmission equipment must get the radio
type approval before they are marketed. It is in order to guarantee the effective
implementation of the radio control, safeguard national security and social
public interests.
SRRC is authorized to be responsible for the nationwide management of the
radio frequency spectrum and acts as a certification body to approve the radio
type approval.
SRRC Categories
The SRRC or RTA applies to any radio transmission equipment which radiates
radio wave for communication, navigation, location, direction-finding, remote
control, telemetry, broadcasting, TV transmission and radar purposes.
Such as:
 Digital Cellular Telecommunication System
 Wireless Access Equipment
 Short Range Device
 FM Transceiver
 Broadcasting Communication System
SRRC Certification Procedure
 SRRC certification procedure
1. Application for SRRC testing
2. Type testing
3. Application for SRRC certification
4. Evaluation of certification results and approval of certification
 During the whole procedure, SRRC will act as a certification body to review and
approve the SRRC certification.
 When the application meets all of the requirements, SRRC will issue the certificate.
Usually, a SRRC certificate is valid for 5 years.

them are identical or stem from ETSI EN or other international standards.
 Test Items:
• Conducted Maximum Output Power
• Maximum Output Power Spectral Density
• Frequency Range
• Occupied Bandwidth

SRRC Certificate (RTA Certificate)
When the certification is approved, SRRC will issue the certificate for the radio
transmission equipment. Then the products can be imported, sold and used in
business activities in China with a CMIIT ID on the label. The CMIIT ID is
issued on the SRRC certificate as below marked.
The CMIIT ID should be marked on the equipment before it is imported, sold and used in business
activities in China.
The format of CMIIT ID: XXXXYZNNNN. For example: 2013DJ9998
2013: Represents Year of Approval
D: Represents “a short range devices”. This is a code indicating “equipment category”*.
Represents “Import”. This is a code indicating “Manufacture Location”. If it is Letter “P”
which means Domestic.
