What is CCC?

The China Compulsory Certificate mark, commonly known as a CCC Mark, is a compulsory safety mark for many products imported, sold, or used in the Chinese market. It was implemented on May 1, 2002, and became fully effective on August 1, 2003.

It is the result of the integration of China’s two previous compulsory inspection systems, namely “CCIB” (Safety Mark, introduced in 1989 and required for products in 47 product categories) and “CCEE” (also known as “Great Wall” Mark, for electrical commodities in 7 product categories), into a single procedure.
