CCC/CQC Factory Inspection (China)


In December 2001, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China (AQSIQ) issued the "Regulations on the Administration of Compulsory Product Certification", replacing the original safety and quality licensing system for imported goods and the safety certification system for electrical products with a compulsory product certification system.

China Compulsory Certification (CCC) or 3C certification for short. It is a statutory mandatory safety certification system.

Products included in the CCC List are 22 major categories of products such as household appliances, automobiles, safety glass, medical devices, wires and cables, toys, etc. The CQC was appointed to undertake the 3C certification of 146 products in 18 categories within the CCC List.

The CQC has launched a voluntary product certification service (known as CQC Mark Certification) for products other than those subject to mandatory certification, which indicates compliance with quality, safety, environmental protection and performance standards by means of the CQC Mark. The certification covers over 500 products.

Aims to protect the safety of consumers and property and to safeguard the interests of consumers; to improve the quality of enterprises' products and to enhance the competitiveness of their products in the international market. It also enables foreign companies to enter the Chinese domestic market more smoothly.

CQC, as an authoritative certification agency in China, has a high brand awareness in the international environment. It can greatly enhance the brand image of the certified company, and ETC is a CQC-appointed factory inspection organization.

  • Performed initial and annual CCC factory inspections commissioned by the China Quality Certification Centre (CQC).
