The CCC System in China

China Compulsory Certification System, also known as CCC or 3C, is China's statutory compulsory safety and quality certification system for products sold in the Chinese market. The CCC system came into force as of May 1, 2002, to replace the original Quality License System for Commodity Inspection and Safety Certification System for Electrical Equipment.
