China CCC Exemption


With new import regulations being put into place, businesses are having more difficulty importing product that was not China made into China. Products and materials that do not have CCC approvals on them, regardless if the product is eligible for such approvals are being rejected during the import process. (Example: A customer buys a European power cord that was manufactured in Taiwan, with the intention of forwarding the product to their contract manufacturer in China. When this cord reaches customs, it is being rejected due to not having CCC approval)


Currently many products are not eligible for CCC approvals, with this is mind there are a few ways to handle this situation. The preferred and simplest method would be applying for a CCC exemption. This can be done at https://www.china-certification.com/en/ccc-certification-exemption/. This is the method that most businesses are familiar with and are currently using. Please contact our Sales Department and let us know how we can help!
