Type test + post-certification supervision
4 Classification of certification units
In principle, controller products produced by the same producer (manufacturer) and the
same manufacturing enterprise (location), and having no significant differences in the
following aspects could be classified as one certification unit:
(1) Structural type;
(2) Voltage level;
(3) Current level.
In principle, the certification client shall propose certification entrusting based on the
principle of classification of units. The same unit may include multiple "models (or
specifications)" of products.
For the same product produced by the same producer but different manufacturing
enterprises, or for the same model product produced by different producers but the same
manufacturing enterprise, it may be taken into account that the type test is only
conducted on the samples of one unit. For products from other manufacturing
enterprises/producers, documents shall be provided for conformity inspection.
5 Certification entrusting
5.1 Certification process
(1) Certification entrusting, materials review and acceptance;
(2) Dividing certification product units and formulating the certification plan;
(3) Signing the certification contract and charging;
(4) Product type test;
(5) Certification evaluation and decision;
(6) Issuing the certificate;
(7) Post-certification supervision.
5.2 Certification entrustment materials
See Appendix 1 "List of documents and materials to be submitted by the applicant".
5.3 Certification plan and certification contract
CCAP shall review the application materials. If the application materials need to be
supplemented or improved, it shall communicate with the client and require
supplementing and submitting relevant materials. After the review is completed, it shall
issue a notice of acceptance or not-acceptance to the client.
After accepting the application, CCAP shall formulate a certification plan according to
the audit result, which includes:
(1) The certification mode and unit division adopted;
(2) Type test plan (including the selection and confirmation of the laboratory);
(3) Estimated certification fees;
(4) Other matters and requirements that need to be explained.
CCAP shall give the above certification plan to the client. After reaching a consensus,
it shall sign a formal certification contract with the client as the basis for certification
6 Certification implementation
6.1 Type test
6.1.1 Type test plan
CCAP shall formulate the product inspection plan after reviewing the materials. The
inspection plan includes requirements and quantity of all samples, the inspection
standard, inspection items, information on the labs that can be selected by the
certification client, etc.
6.1.2 Sample requirements of type test
The samples for type test shall be products produced by the manufacturing enterprise
that entrusts the certification according to normal processing methods. The certification
client shall ensure that the samples provided by it are consistent with the actual products
produced, and shall not obtain samples for testing by borrowing, renting, purchasing,
In principle, the certification client shall send samples to the laboratory contracted by
CCAP for testing. If necessary, CCAP can also use on-site sampling/sealing to obtain
samples for testing according to the requirements of the type test plan.
If there is only one model in one certification unit, samples of that model shall be sent
for testing. If there are multiple models in one unit, CCAP can choose a representative
model; a differential test shall be made for other models when necessary.
CCAP and/or the laboratory shall review the authenticity of the samples provided by
the certification client. If the laboratory has doubts about the authenticity of the sample,
it shall explain the situation to CCAP and handle it accordingly.
In principle, it shall be ensured that samples are sent to the laboratory for a type test
within 10 days. If samples are not sent within the specified time due to special
circumstances, sufficient reasons for delaying sample delivery must be provided to
CCAP. Number of type test samples
The number of samples to be submitted shall comply with the provisions in Table 1 of
this Rules.
The number of test samples that need to be supplemented for a differential test shall be
subject to the test plan finally confirmed by CCAP.
7 Post-certification supervision
7.1 Post-certification follow-up inspection
7.1.1 Type, frequency and inspection time of post-certification follow-up inspection
The post-certification supervision for the electric bicycle controller is divided into two
types: initial supervision and regular supervision.
The initial supervision refers to the first post-certification supervision implemented by
CCAP on the certified enterprise within 6 months after the issuance of the first
Regular supervision refers to the post-certification supervision that CCAP implements
according to the post-certification supervision plan after the initial supervision is
implemented on the certified enterprise. In principle, regular supervision shall be
carried out at least once a year.
The time for post-certification follow-up inspection is determined according to the
number of categories of certified products, with due consideration to the production
scale of the factory. Generally, the inspection time of the initial supervision for the same
manufacturing enterprise (location) is 2~4 man-days, and the inspection time of the
regular supervision is 1~2 man-days. When ODM factories are involved, the number of
inspection man-days can be appropriately increased according to the number of ODM
manufacturers, and the increased inspection time for each manufacturer shall not exceed
0.25 man-days. If necessary, when on-site inspections can be conducted on ODM
producers (manufacturers), the number of inspection man-days for each ODM producer
(manufacturer) shall not exceed 0.5 man-days. According to the number of product
models involved in expansions/changes, on-site inspection man-days may be
appropriately increased.
If one of the following situations occurs, the frequency of supervision may be increased:
1) Serious quality problems occur in certified products, or serious complaints
from users are found to be the responsibility of the certificate holder;
2) When the certification body has sufficient reasons to question the compliance
of the certified product with health and safety standards;
3) When there is sufficient information to show that product compliance or
conformity may be affected due to changes in organizational structure,
production conditions, quality management systems, etc. of the manufacturer
or manufacturing enterprise.
7.1.2 Content of post-certification follow-up inspection
(1) Product consistency inspection (including consistency of structure and
parameters, model specifications, and critical components/materials), factory
quality assurance ability inspection (see Appendix 3), and on-site designated
testing (selected from routine inspections and verification inspections);
(2) The use of certification marks and certificates;
(3) Other CCAP factory on-site inspection requirements.
Among them, product consistency inspection and designated on-site test mean that the
inspection team randomly takes samples from the products that have passed the
inspection at the end of the production line or in the warehouse to conduct inspections;
the inspection items include but are not limited to the following:
a) The identification of the certified product (such as name, specification, model,
and trademark) shall be consistent with that indicated in the test report and the
information submitted for entrusted certification;
b) The structure and parameters of the certified product shall be consistent with
the samples submitted and the information submitted for entrusted
c) Designated on-site test for certified products (inspection items are selected
from routine inspections and verification inspections).
NOTE: The initial supervision shall include all items in Appendix 2 "Factory quality assurance ability
requirements"; during regular supervision, Articles 3, 4, 5, and 8 specified in Appendix 2 "Factory quality
assurance ability requirements" are required inspection items in each supervision, other items can be
checked optionally, and at least all the items in the requirements shall be covered every 4 years.
7.1.3 Results of post-certification follow-up inspection
For post-certification follow-up inspections, the inspection conclusions are divided into
three types: "factory inspection is PASS", "there are unqualified items, it is PASS after
rectification and verification", and "factory inspection is NOT-PASS". The conditions
of each conclusion are as follows:
(1) There are no unqualified items found in the factory inspection, the inspection
result is "PASS".
(2) There are any unqualified items found in the factory inspection, rectification
may be allowed, and the rectification shall be done within 3 months.
After CCAP takes appropriate ways to verify the rectification result, it is PASS. It
During each supervision, CCAP formulates a sampling and inspection plan, and some
or all of the type test inspection items are selected for testing. In principle, different
units/models of products shall be sampled during each supervision.
The personnel appointed by CCAP shall take samples according to the sampling and
inspection plan from the qualified products produced by the enterprise (including
production lines, warehouses, etc.). After sampling, CCAP shall seal up the samples,
and the enterprise shall send the samples to the designated test laboratory for testing
within 10 working days. When sending the samples, the enterprise shall fill in the
sample description form and truthfully describe the critical components and materials
(including suppliers) used in the samples taken. CCAP and/or the laboratory will inspect
the conformity of the samples. If the samples taken are found to be inconsistent with
the certified product, in principle, the test shall not be continued. The inspection
conclusion is that the samples taken are inconsistent with the certified product, and the
test is stopped.
NOTE: If sampling from a warehouse, the sampling base shall be no less than 10 times the number of
test samples, but there is no base limit when randomly sampling on the production line.
7.3 Records of post-certification supervision
CCAP shall properly record and archive the entire post-certification supervision process
to ensure traceability of the certification process and results.
7.4 Evaluation of post-certification supervision results
CCAP shall conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the results of follow-up inspections,
the sampling inspection results, and relevant materials. If it passes the evaluation, the
certificate can be kept and the certification mark can be continuously used; if it fails in
the evaluation, CCAP shall handle with suspension or withdrawal of the certificate
according to the corresponding situation, and an announcement shall be issued.
8 Certificate
8.1 Maintenance of the certificate
The valid period of the product certificate covered by this Rules is 5 years. During the
valid period, the validity of the certificate is maintained by depending on CCAP's post-
certification supervision.
If the certificate expires and needs to be renewed, the certification client shall put
forward a certification entrusting within 90 days before the valid period of the
certificate expires. If the last post-certification supervision result within the valid period
of the certificate is PASS, then the certificate can be directly renewed.
8.2 Content of the certificate
If the content contained in the certificate is marked on the certified products and their
sales packages, it shall be consistent with the content of the certificate. Changes to the
certificate shall indicate the change information to clearly show the number of changes
to the product.
8.3 Changes to certification certificates
8.3.1 Change of certification requirements (including standard version upgrade)
When the certification requirements are changed, CCAP shall issue a notice of the
change for the above-mentioned certification requirements on the public website. At the
same time, CCAP shall notify the certification enterprises of the change requirements
by fax, email, or other methods.
After the certification enterprise receives the notice, it shall submit a certification
change application and the required materials to CCAP within the stipulated time limit.
CCAP shall draw up a plan on whether it needs to arrange a supplementary product
inspection and/or factory inspection according to the result of the material review, and
conduct an evaluation on the result. If within the time limit specified in the change plan,
the client's supplementary inspection/document review/factory inspection evaluation is
"PASS", then CCAP shall approve the change, and the certificate shall be renewed. If
the certification enterprise does not submit a change application within the time limit
specified in the plan or the evaluation result of the supplementary inspection/factory
inspection is not qualified, then CCAP shall suspend the certificate for the relevant
range of products from the expiry date of the stipulated time-limit. If the enterprise does
not submit the certificate recovery application within the suspension time limit OR the
rectification measures are not taken OR the rectification result is not qualified, then
CCAP shall withdraw the certificate or shrink the relevant certification range.
8.3.2 Certification change of certification enterprise
After the enterprise is certified, if there are changes that may affect the certification
(hereinafter referred to as certification change), including changes in the content on the
certificate, or technical changes of the certified products (design, structure parameters,
software version, critical components/raw materials, suppliers, etc.) that may affect the
compliance with relevant standards; or changes of the factory production conformity
control requirements and the production conditions that may affect the production
