China SRRC published an update for Low Power / Short Range device regulation No. 52/2019.
On Nov. 28, 2019, China SRRC published an update for Low Power / Short Range device regulation (No. 52, 2019).
This regulation is to regulate the production, import, of radio transmitting equipment listed in the catalog and technical requirements for low power /short distance radio transmitting equipment (see Annex) sold and used in China does not need to obtain the radio frequency use license, radio station license, SRRC approval, but shall conform to regulations related to product quality such as the laws and regulations, national standards and national radio electricity management.
Effective as of October 12, 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China has published clarifications of the requirements for radio transmission equipment seeking type approval. Applicants must submit new applications for model and type approval (even if they have already obtained original radio equipment type approval certification) if:
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China has issued a statement that they will begin enforcement of the implementation of the conformity assessment system for restricted use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
This assessment system ensures compliance with standards and technical specifications for the use of hazardous substances. Certification bodies must meet the requirements of the “Administrative Measures for Certification Bodies”, the GB/T 27065 “Conformity for Certification and Evaluation of Products, Processes and Services” and the RB/T 242 “Requirements for Green Product Certification Institutions”.
Suppliers are responsible for genuine self-declaration and related technical documents. Market surveillance departments must supervise and manage restricted use, conformity assessment activities and results of hazardous substances found in electrical and electronic products.
New RoHS requirements.
China RoHS news Effect date: November 1, 2019.
12 types of products: refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, electric water heaters, printers, copiers, fax machines (and all-in-ones), televisions, monitors, and microcomputers (including all-in-ones, tablets, handheld computers), mobile communication handsets, and telephone.
To obtain more information and a detailed list of products that are affected by this new rule, Contact CSIA.
CCC Factory inspection requirements
For a factory in China to stay compliance with CQC it must undergo regular maintenance as described below.
1. One commercial sample to us for EMC test
2. 5 samples of the components (PCB and enclosure), not the end product. The factory should have these components.
3. Specification of PCB and enclosure.
4. Safety components test needs to be performed every year.
5. EMC test needs to be performed every 2 years, however CCC might do random audit on the test report every year, so I recommend your client to do the EMC test every year. If multiple similar products are produced at the same factory by the same manufacturer and belong to the same CCC category you can test either one of them for EMC test. As per CCC inspection requirement the manufacturer can pick up one of CCC certified products which belong to the same category from the same factory to do EMC verification test.
6. The lead time of both safety test and EMC test will take 2 weeks.
The factory should be informed of the above requirement by the auditor in their original factory inspection.
(MIIT) Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the Public Republic of China has stated enforcing a new rule that went into effect in January 2019. This new regulation requires certificate holders to record the sale of any radio transmitting equipment that was subject to Type Approval under the laws and regulations of China. Manufacturers who are currently selling products in China that require type approval (SRRC, CCC or MII) should ContactCSIA as soon as possible to determine if their products fall into the scope of approval so that we can obtain approval for your products and avoid issues during importation and marketing of your products in China.
China MIIT, which is the supervising manager of SRRC, issued new regulations on SRRC certification. Starting 10/15/2018, SRRC states all samples must pass testing within 5 days, which means the manufacturer will have to make sure that the test setup instructions are comprehensive and they are confident the samples (EUT) sent for testing can complete all testing at SRRC lab within 5 days. Otherwise they will need to re-submit the application and the SRRC lab will charge you for all future rounds of testing.
CNCA along with Market Supervision General Administration of China made the announcement today regard of adjust CCC product scope and add CCC self-declaration method for some of product category. Contact CSIA for the original announcement and the translation of the original announcement and 3 related attachment translation are attached for reference.
We discussed with CQC reviewers these changes and share some thoughts in below;
This update removes 26 product category from CCC scope- the existing CCC cert will be cancelled by authority like CQC once CNCA informs them to do so. Customers needs to consider removing existing CCC logo from product label etc.
Self-declaration process: manufactures can now choose to keep the orignal way of moving forward(go through CQC and get CQC CCC certificate) or go through complicated Doc process if their product falls into the scope. However the potential challenge will be if China customs can be fully synced up with the new rules and there is high risk to fail to get through China custom without CCC certificate base on our experience. Market supervision on DoC process looks like it may be another uncertain risk for now.
China as of March 20, 2018 China CCC has updated the logo for this certification.
China now accepts removable SIM cards. Prior to that date only embedded SIM cards were allowed.
As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should ContactCSIA for up to date information.
CSIA can also provide supporting services should your company not be able to meet country specific requirements such as a local representative, local certificate holder, translating documents into the native language, etc. Contact CSIA at (503) 489 8006 or email@example.com for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
