History of the 3C "CCC" Mark
On August 1, 2003 the symbols "CCIB" and "CCEE" found on products sold in China were replaced by the "CCC" Mark. China merged its two compulsory inspection systems, one to check contents of products for import and export, and the other for quality control, into a single procedure as part of its commitment for entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO).
The two previous systems (CCIB and CCEE, or Great Wall) were cumbersome for enterprises dealing in both domestic and foreign trade by carrying different national quality standards. With CCC as a single procedure, this burden has been lifted, providing faster, more cost-effective access to Chinese markets.
