The mandatory certification program, overseen by the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People's Republic of China (CNCA), covers 17 product categories, including toys falling within the following four product areas:
- Electric toys
- Plastic toys
- Metal toys
- Ride-on toys
With CCC accreditation, SGS is now well-placed to help manufacturers gain access to Chinese markets, guiding them through the 4-step certification process:
- Submission of application for certification and supporting materials
- Testing of toys and declaration of conformity
- Evaluation of certification results, and approval/rejection of certification
- Follow-up inspection – required six-monthly for successful applications
Nicolas Bacheré, Global Director, Hardlines CRS at SGS said: "We are delighted to achieve this accreditation which is great news for toy manufacturers looking to bring safe and compliant toys to the Chinese market. As part of a global network of toy testing laboratories, our experts look forward to supporting the toy industry to grow their business safely and sustainably, minimizing risk and expanding opportunity."
