The key points of the document are:
From October 1, 2019, explosion-proof electrical appliances, household gas appliances, and household refrigerators with a calibrated capacity of over 500L will be included in the CCC certification management catalog. Applications for these products production licenses will no longer be accepted.
From October 1, 2020, the above-mentioned products will not be allowed to leave the factory, be sold, imported or used in other business activities without obtaining compulsory product certificates and affixing the CCC mark.
After October 1, 2020, products produced during the validity period of their production licenses can still be put on the market with their original packaging (comply with the requirements of the production licenses).
