What is the CCC Self Declaration?

The CCC Self Declaration is the official certification process for specific products in adition to the traditional CCC certification process. This process is established by the Certification and Accreditation Administration of China (CNCA).

The CCC Self-Declaration (also called China Self-Declaration, Declaration of Compliance (DoC), Self-Declaration of Compulsory Product Certification/ Self-Declaration of Certification and/or China Supplier Declaration of Conformity (SDoC)), certifies that the manufactured products comply with the Chinese standards, and that product conformity is continuously maintained in accordance with Chinese regulations. The CCC certification, which can be achieved through a CCC SDoC, is compulsory for products that are imported to or sold in the Chinese market.

For this CCC Self-Declaration process, the applicant must be a Chinese company with a Chinese contact person in China. The applicant can only be a subsidiary or the distributor / importer of the manufacturer. At CCIC Europe Testing we can offer clients without a company in China the placement of a CCC applicant service to facilitate this process.

A Chinese cooperation partner acts as the CCC Self-Declaration applicant and will upload the necessary documents into the CNCA database. All your manufacturing facilities can be registered for the CCC Self-Declaration through this applicant.

The manufacturer’s CCC declaration resembles a simplified form of conventional CCC certification, but is associated with considerably higher risks for manufacturers and applicants.

The CCC SDoC is subject to the general CNCA implementation rule CNCA-00C-008: 2018. However, the respective CNCA implementation regulations for the individual component categories remain valid and must be observed by manufacturers.
