  • New version of the certificate style
    • The new version of the compulsory product certification certificate can be found in the attachments (both English and Chinese).
  • e-Certificate document format
    • It is recommended that the authentication client obtains only one electronic certificate. The e-Cert document format is issued in accordance with China’s electronic document exchange and storage format standards, and the OFD (Open Fixed-layout Document) document format is used to issue electronic certificates.
  • Implementation arrangements
    • From 1 January 2024, new CCC certificates and electronic certificates (e-Certificates) are issued in accordance with the requirements set out above.

CCC certificates and electronic certificates (e-Certificates) in PDF document format issued before 1 January 2024 will be replaced by the new formats previously established when the renewal or change procedures for certificates are carried out upon their expiry date. This adjustment does not imply the replacement of already issued certificates.
