To secure access to the Chinese market, the explosion protection expert R. STAHL has obtained the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) for its products that are subject to this directive. This means that the company can continue to export its range of explosion-protected products to China with no restrictions and allows these to be implemented in customer-specific explosion protection solutions at industrial sites in China.
The CCC directive is comparable to the European new legislative framework for standardising product quality. CCC certificates are issued by authorised testing and certification bodies. Since 1st October 2020, the scope of the directive has been expanded to include a number of explosion-protected products, which would no longer be allowed to be imported into China or placed on the market in China without corresponding Ex and CCC markings. Among other equipment, this new regulation affects explosion-protected motors and pumps, power distribution boards, control and terminal boxes, operating terminals, fieldbus systems, and other automation products. CCC-compliant market access requires product certification according to Chinese explosion protection criteria, as well as quality management and factory tests at the individual production sites.
By obtaining CCC-certification of the relevant product groups, R. STAHL has secured its position as a global leading manufacturer and technology partner for explosion protection. The company offers its customers in the oil and gas, food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries a comprehensive range of globally certified solutions for all hazardous locations. Its product portfolio ranges from state-of-the-art LED lighting to control and distribution systems, and from operating and monitoring systems to interface and network technology. What's more, R. STAHL's has taken on an active role in setting and shaping official ATEX and IECEx standards, as well as developing new protection concepts to maximise the safety and efficiency of explosion protection.
