China CCC Factory Inspection
to CCC rules, CQC will conduct factory audits as part of the CCC certification
process. There are two types of factory audit: the Initial
factory inspection and the annual factory audit.
Initial Factory Inspection
initial factory inspection is required during a the CCC application process
for a new product. CCC controls factory compliance by product category. That
means if the factory is approved by CCC for manufacturing a certain type of
product (type 1605 as an example), then any new CCC application for the same
type does not require a factory inspection.
initial factory inspection is focusing on the quality control system of the
Annual Factory Inspection
factory audit is required to maintain the CCC certificate. This factory audit
is focusing on the manufacturing process of a specific product on the
of key items to pass the annual CCC factory audit:
Critical Component Control:
requests stringent control of both Safety critical components and EMC critical
components. As part of the requirement the factory has to have component manufacturer ongoing quality test data be available
during their audits. This data must be received with the components as they
arrive at the factory. The data must;
Be Component Manufacturer production line test data.
Correspond to the commercial part number received
Be dated within the last 6 months
Be traceable to the Component manufacturing company.
of the type of data Component manufacturer must provide are given below. The
data type will depend upon the component type.
Dielectric strength, creepage and clearance measurements, measurements of
critical dimensions, clamping voltages, operating voltages, capacitances,
resistances, flammability test.
Final Product Testing
requirement for maintaining the CCC certificate is the Final Product Testing
on all CCC approved products, and for
each factory which manufacture the product. Hence a single product may need to
be tested more than once if this product is manufactured at more than one
factory. It is imperative that this testing occur every 6 months. When the factory audits occur
necessary to show the inspectors test results, which are no older than 6
