China's Compulsory Certification (CCC) Mark: Guidance for U.S. Exporters (A Workshop)
by Laura Fine, Assistant State Director
The government of China has introduced a new safety license system that requires manufacturers in 132 product categories to obtain the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) Mark before exporting to or selling in the China market. The new licensing system, implemented on May 1, 2002 and fully effective on August 1, 2003, will impact many U.S. exporters across a wide range of manufacturing sectors. Products not meeting CCC requirements may be held at the border by Chinese Customs and will be subject to other penalties. This hands-on workshop will provide companies with details on the application process and steps to obtaining the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) Mark to successfully export or sell products in the China market. The panel will feature CCC experts Timothy Wineland from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington DC and Katherine Garkey of Underwriters Laboratories.
The workshop will be held Tuesday, August 5 from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in Room 450 of the UALR Reynolds Business Center. The registration fee is $25.00 per person. To register, call Mary Hayward at 501-324-5794.
This event is being sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Arkansas District Export Council, UALR College of Business, and the Arkansas Small Business Development Center.
