CCC Exemption Authentication

2006-6-16: Import Vehicle into China for Personal Use

To clarify many inquiries about importing vehicle into China for personal use, here is the answer:

The vehicle imported into China must be certified by CCC certificate. If the vehicle has no CCC mark on it, and the importer qualifies the CCC-exempted condition provided by Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau on Nov. 21, 2005 as below, the importer can apply for CCC Exemption Authentication to waive the CCC requirement for the vehicle. Otherwise, the importer must either have the vehicle certified by CCC certificate or import the vehicle having the CCC mark on it.

2005-12-5: According to Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau on Nov. 21, 2005:

To further clarify the CCC-exempted condition: "Self-use commodities taken by people entering the country;" in No. 3 Announcement by CNCA on Mar. 3th, 2005, by following the related notification from CNCA and AQSIQ, Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau informs that the imported automobile or motorcycle qualified this condition is the tariff-exempted passenger car (Class M) when imported, including the vehicle brought from other countries by the Chinese diplomatic agents or the people returning back China when having completed their studies in foreign countries. The automobiles or motorcycles imported by enterprises or persons in name of self-use, if not tariff-exempted, do not qualify the above CCC-exempted condition, and must be certified by CCC certificate or follow the requirements of CCC Special Treatment Procedures.

CNCA released No. 20 Announcement on Aug. 10th, 2005 to stipulate the CCC waiver in further for the products imported in small volumn without CCC mark but covered by the CCC catalogue.

  • For the product covered by the CCC catalogue and not qualified any qualification conditions listed in the No. 3 Announcement by CNCA on Mar. 3rd, 2005, the entry-exit authorities should advise to have it returned and not allowed to have it imported if without going through the special treatments.
  • If the product in small volumn covered by the CCC catalogue did not get CCC mark really due to special reasons or in special purposes, and the product will be used in production or life consumption, it could go through the "Special Treatment Procedures for the Imported Products Covered by the Compulsory Product Certificate Catalogue". After the product passes the tests in the "Special Treatment Procedures", it could be imported to be used by end-user or sold in the regions specified in the application.

Here is a brief table* listing the products and volumns allowed in the Special Treatment:

Product Catalogue Volumn
Electrical Products Up to 1200
