SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and
certification company, has gained accreditation to test toys against the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) standard
at its laboratory in Hong Kong, China.

With the CCC accreditation, SGS is well-placed to carry out testing
against the required CCC standards and guide manufacturers through the
certification process from its state-of-the-art laboratory in Hong Kong, China.

CCC is a mandatory certification program covering 17 product categories,
including toys within the following four product areas:

  • Electric toys
  • Plastic toys
  • Metal toys
  • Ride-on toys

Nicolas Bacheré, Global Director,
Hardlines CRS at SGS, said: “We are
delighted to achieve this accreditation which is great news for toy
manufacturers looking to bring safe and compliant
toys to the Chinese market. As part of a global network of toy testing laboratories, our experts look forward to
supporting the toy industry to grow their business safely and sustainably,
minimizing risk and expanding opportunity.”

The Certification and
Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA) oversees
the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) bodies and approved laboratories
scheme. Historically, only government institutions and state-owned enterprises
were able to be accredited to Certified Body and Approved Laboratory status.

SGS will guide clients
undertaking the four-step

  1. Submission of application for certification and
    supporting materials
  2. Testing of toys and declaration of conformity
  3. Evaluation of certification results, and
    approval/rejection of certification
  4. Follow-up inspection – required every six months for
    successful applications
