China SRRC Approval Update
In September 2018, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) introduced changes to the SRRC application procedure and testing requirements effective as from October 15, 2018.
The main changes are as follows:
- The applicant must have a valid Chinese identity card and phone number to be able to create an SRRC account where all the application documents have to be submitted
- One of the officially recognized labs will be randomly selected to carry out tests. Testing fees won’t apply if all tests pass. It is thus highly recommended to perform pre-testing so as to avoid delays and save costs
- After obtaining the SRRC certificate, the applicant has to submit proof of product sale in China
Finally, local distributors are required to register all products on sale other than SRDs
