Toys imported to China are subject to mandatory requirements, either under the CCC certification program or national (GB) standards and technical specifications.
When determining the need for CCC of toys, age-appropriate guidelines typically mandate the need. If a toy is deemed suitable for ages below 14 years of age, then it is very likely that CCC will be required. Nearly every toy that is intended for children under the age of 14 will require certification.
If the toy passes the product testing, a CCC certificate will be issued. Once issued, marking permission needs to be obtained for the manufacturer to mark the toy or its packaging with the CCC logo.
One of the requirements is Labeling. Click on the below YouTube video to learn more.
