Cost of CCC Certification/CCC Certificate/3C Certification Fee/3C Certificate Fee
The various costs associated with certification will depend on the products.
The certification, either a CCC certification or a voluntary certification involves the following costs from the Chinese authorities:
Product test fees
Travel costs and related expenses for the auditors
You must also consider the cost of an interpreter, the cost of the products sent for testing as well as the employee time that it takes to prepare and handle the certification process, particularly if this is done without the aid of advisory firm.
When forms are filled out incorrectly, tests and/or audits must be repeated incurring additional, unnecessarily high costs. Likewise, improper CCC markings will result in deliveries being detained by Chinese customs and additional fees may be levied.
Below is an example of the cost of CCC certification for two vehicle headlights. (Note: the example does not include consulting fees or the cost of a translator.
By hiring a professional certification advisory firm, problems can be avoided from the outset, thereby reducing the risk of running up additional costs. Furthermore, through the assistance of certification advisors, the CCC mark is obtained quickly, greatly reducing opportunity costs incurred by delayed product launches.
