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:
1. Electric toys
2. Plastic toys
3. Metal toys
4. 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 certification process:
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
