Chinese Customs Authority in Tianjin Seizes Imported Goods

Le 8 septembre 2017, 03:44 dans Humeurs 0

Inconsistent product information has led the Chinese customs authority in Tianjin seizing goods imported from Germany. The problem occurred when the product details on the CCC Certificates were different than the actual product details. The products were detained and destroyed.

It is important that the CCC Certification details are 100% the same across all of the applications, documentation and markings. The smallest inconsistencies can cause problems at customs and leads to seizure and destruction of goods without compensation.

We can offer a free no-obligation CCC Check and also provide information and cost overview if your product requires CCC. If your product needs CCC we can assist you with the planning and complete CCC certification allow you to ship and sell your product(s) in China without these types of problems.

The prescribed method for CCC certification can be found in the CNCA implementation rules.
The GB standard (GB stands for Guobiao, Chinese for “National Standard”), defines the testing procedures and the permissible deviations.

If you need more information about a specific product certification for the Chinese market, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can send us an e-mail or call us at + 49-69-2713769150.

Motorcylce helmets will soon need CCC Certifications

Le 11 août 2017, 12:47 dans Humeurs 0

The two top certification authorities in China, the CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China) and AQSIQ (General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine), are currently jointly working on the Implementation Rules for the CCC certification of motorcycle helmets.

The exact release date is not yet known. The new CNCA rule is based on the already existing GB standard GB 811-2010 (Helmets for motorcyclists), which defines the basic structure of motorcycle helmets, type, specifications, technical requirements, test procedures, test rules and labels (for both drivers and passengers).

After the new requirement is implemented helmets for motorcyclists will be subject to China Compulsory Certification. At that time importing and distributing helmets in China will require a valid CCC certificate. Typically, a transitional period of at least one year is usually granted. We will inform you about more details once more information is available and the new CNCAimplementation rules are completed.



If you have questions about the planned CCC certification of helmets for motorcyclists, please do not hesitate to contact us. We offer full English translations of relevant standards as well as support in answering questions regarding the planned CCC certification.

China Charges Special Tax on Luxury Cars

Le 5 février 2017, 02:57 dans Humeurs 0

China has decided to charge a special tax of 10% for luxury cars. This new tax became effective into force on December 1, 2016. The reasoning behind the tax is to help reduce air pollution in major metropolitan areas as well as to help curb wasteful spending by the Chinese elite. The Chinese president has been striving to slow down the spending by the Chinese upper class. This tax has already had a strong influence on the sale of luxury handbags and premium spirits. Of course this tax should also strengthen domestic production and reduce dependency on foreign companies.


German automotive manufacturers such as Audi, Daimler and BMW will also be affected. However, since the special tax only affects vehicles of 1.3 million Yuan (around 178,000 Euros) and above, the hit to the automotive manufacturers will be limited, as a BMW spokesman confirmed. At Audi, only about one per cent of their cars sold in China are affected.


VW’s sister companies Porsche and Lamborghini will be subjected to the tax due to their price point. Other manufacturers of luxury cars such as Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin will also be subject to the additional tax. Currently China represents the largest growth market in the luxury segment with growth rates of 50 to 100 percent.


Experts believe that the tax change will have only a short-term impact on the sales figures in China. German automotive manufacturers have already announced plans to react accordingly to avoid long-term effects.


MPR China Certification offers CCC Certification for Automotive Suppliers and Manufacturers. For manufacturers we offer CCC Certifications and the Complete Type Approvals (including emission and consumption test) to enable sales of vehicles into the Chinese market.
