ATIC CCC Certification Service
CCC certification (China Compulsory Certification),  is a product conformity assessment system implemented by the Chinese government in order to protect consumers' personal safety and national security, strengthen product quality management, and comply with laws and regulations. The CCC certification is a mandatory certification required by the People's Republic of China for the import, export, manufacture, sale, and use of various products. Only certified products can be considered to meet mandatory requirements in terms of safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and environmental protection.

The CQC mark certification is one of the voluntary product certification services carried out by the China Quality Certification Center CQC. By adding the CQC mark, it indicates that the product meets the relevant quality, safety, performance, electromagnetic compatibility and other certification requirements. The certification scope covers mechanical equipment, power Equipment, electrical appliances, electronic products, textiles, building materials and more than 500 products. The CQC mark certification focuses on safety, electromagnetic compatibility, performance, and hazardous substance limits, which directly reflect product quality and affect consumers' personal and property safety. It aims to safeguard consumer interests, promote product quality, and enhance the international competitiveness of domestic companies.

Motor vehicle horns were once in the CCC mandatory certification scope, and were certified in accordance with China National Certification and Accreditation Administration CNCA-C11-05 Motor Vehicle Horn Compulsory Product Certification Implementation Rules. According to the 2018 Announcement No. 11 issued by the State Administration of Market Regulation of China in June 2018, the horn of motor vehicles has been removed from the scope of compulsory certification products, and no compulsory certification is currently being carried out.

Although motor vehicle horns no longer require mandatory CCC certification, manufacturers can consider CQC mark certification (voluntary certification) as appropriate. China Quality Certification Center has included the scope of CQC mark certification. According to CQC16-491283-2018 Motor Vehicle Horn Implementation Rules Certification of electric horns and air horns for M, N, L motor vehicles.

ADR certification

The importation of vehicles to Australia is prohibited except in very specific circumstances. Most vehicles are imported by large manufacturers that invest substantially in research and development to ensure that every new vehicle meets minimum safety standards that maintain the safest possible environment for all road users and our community. Manufacturers wanting to import vehicles to Australia for supply must first obtain a Vehicle Type Approval.
Approved companies known as Registered Automotive Workshops (RAWs) may import a limited range of used vehicles on behalf of individuals. Individuals can also apply to import vehicles to Australia. A Vehicle Import Approval is required to import a vehicle. The vehicle will not be released from customs control by the Australian Border Force (ABF) unless it has a Vehicle Import Approval.

Before a new vehicle can be registered for the first time in Australia, it must meet the requirements of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (the Act). The Act applies to all new vehicles - whether road motor vehicles or road trailers. Under the Act, new vehicles are required to be fitted with an identification plate (formerly known as a compliance plate). The identification plate provides a clear indication to the state or territory registering authority - and to the owner and the general public - that the vehicle is ready for use in transport on public roads in Australia.
The Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 (RVSA) and associated Road Vehicle Standards Acts relating to consequential and transitional provisions and charges passed Parliament in late 2018. The Road Vehicle Standards Rules 2019, which cover the operational aspects of the RVSA, were made in February 2019. The RVSA will replace the existing Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (MVSA) and deliver an updated and modernized system to regulate the first provision of road vehicles to the Australian market.

In Australia, the entire process from application to obtaining an Identification Plate is called Certification. The entire certification process is managed by Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.
The scope of vehicle certification includes: Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Tractors, Bicycles, Used Imported Cars, Special Vehicles, etc.
Component certification includes: Automotive Lamps, Rearview Mirrors, Seat Belts, Brake Hoses, Glass, Tires, Retro-reflectors, Filament Bulbs, Couplings, Seats, etc.

Vehicle EAC Certification
The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), also known as the Eurasian Union (EEU), was formerly the Customs Union (abbreviated as CU) of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Armenia and Kyrgyzstan subsequently joined the union, and the Eurasian Economic Union was formally established in 2015.

Eurasian Conformity (EAC) is a product certification system formulated and implemented by the Eurasian Union. At present, the Eurasian Union is expected to issue 66 product technical regulations, and 48 regulations have been enforced. The product scope covers a wide range of food, electrical appliances, children products, transportation, chemicals, light industrial products and other fields. All products listed in the unified list of EAC certification, without obtaining a certificate or applying the certification mark in accordance with regulations, shall not be imported, sold, or used in business service places.

The Eurasian Union member states recognize the certification bodies and laboratories, and the EAC certificate is valid among the member states. According to Article 54 of the EAEU treaty on May 29, member states shall mutually recognize the certification of conformity assessment bodies (including certification bodies and testing laboratories) in the national certification system of member states. EAC certificate replaces previous Russian GOST-R certificate, Kazakhstan GOST-K certificate and Belarus BelST certificate.

ATIC established long term partnership with certification bodies and testing labs in Russia and Belarus, based on ATIC regulation, standard and conformity assessment database providing efficient one-stop EAC certification services in China.
