I have received an enquiry from a company who would like to ascertain if their goods require CCC for export to China. Could someone advise where the company can find a definitive answer as to whether their products need a CCC.
There are a number of websites offering services, however I would suggest that your customer contacts Intertek Testing Services as a starting point. Tel No. 01277 223255, they should be able to assist. www.intertek.com/marks/ccc/
Your customer will need a tariff / HS Code and a full description of the products to see if they come under the list of products requiring CCC Marking.
Trust of asisstance
We have had this enquiry many times prior to clients shipping goods to China. As I understand it Any goods imported into China for re sale are subject to CCC Certification.
There is a website that explains it thoroughly as follows: www.china-certification.com
This site will explain everything you need to know and what documents you or your client will need.
Once you have this sorted I suggest they contact me for shipping requirements as we have
weekly services to every port in China fast transits and very competitive prices.
Good Luck, if you need any assistance please contact me below.
