SGS China Has Been Awarded the CCC (China Compulsory Certification) Approved Laboratory Status

August 18, 2014

The Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA) has announced significant changes to the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) bodies and approved laboratories scheme.

Certain categories of products, intended to be sold in the China market, are subject to the China Compulsory Certification program (e.g. electrical and electronic goods, automobile parts etc).

Historically, only government institutions and state-owned enterprises were able to be accredited to this important Certified Body and Approved Laboratory status.

We are very proud to say that with these changes, SGS  has been awarded the CCC Approved Laboratory status.

SGS is the only European based TIC player  approved by the Chinese government to offer all of the relevant CCC testing services in China. Our initial accredited scope covers Audio and Video products.

“I am very happy with this new, important, accreditation.

This is a clear demonstration of SGS ‘s technical competency,  our significant presence in the Chinese domestic market and our continued drive to participate more closely in this great economy.

As a first, this initial CCC accreditation is a key breakthrough and a stepping stone for further penetration into the China compulsory certification market”  said Chris Kirk, CEO of SGS.
