CCC means “China Compulsory Certificate”. It is a compulsory certification for electronic products imported, sold, or used in the China market. The certification scheme evaluates both product safety and EMC compliance. It was implemented on May 1, 2002 and became fully effective on August 1, 2003. Over the years, there are some changes and updates regarding the product scope as well as the implementation rules.
