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.
