China Okays Certification Compliance Self-Declaration in Restricted Product Categories
As part of ongoing moves to streamline access to the mainland consumer market, the State Administration for Market Regulation and the Certification and Accreditation Administration of China have jointly announced a number of changes to the country’s product certification procedures:
- As of 15 June this year, 19 products – including computer games, motorcycle engines and car anti-theft alarm systems – have no longer been subject to compulsory product certification
- As of 1 October this year, product certification self-declaration will become an option for manufacturers of certain items, such as low-voltage switchgear and low-power motors. Businesses active in these sectors can choose to either to continue to have such products certified by a designated agency or make a self-declaration committing themselves to continued compliance with all statutory product requirements
Full details of the changes were circulated in the Announcement on Reforming and Adjusting the Catalogues of Compulsory Product Certification and Implementation Methods, as issued on 15 June this year.
