On October 1st, the China CCC Certification Self-Declaration compliance information reporting system is officially launched.

The contact person who is in charge of the Certification and Supervision Department of the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) introduced that the self-declaration evaluation method will, on the one hand, help the company to speed up and increase the efficiency of product development, effectively reduce institutional transaction costs, and stimulate independent innovation.
