3 Certification mode selection and relevant requirements
3.1 Basic certification modes
Basic certification mode of CCAP mark certification for the frame, fork and handle of electric bicycle is:
Type test + initial factory inspection + post-certification supervision In the above basic certification mode, post-certification supervision includes two modes: post-certification follow-up inspection and supervision sampling test. In which, supervision sampling test includes production on-site sampling test or inspection and market sampling test or inspection.
3.2 Applicability of certification mode
CCAP shall discretionally increase / decrease the certification elements for various types of enterprises based on the basic certification mode, including:
Class A: Post-certification follow-up inspection, or production on-site sampling test or inspection, or market sampling test or inspection, or any combination of the three methods can be taken as post-certification supervision methods.
Class B, C and D’s producing enterprises: Post-certification supervision shall adopt post-certification follow-up inspection and supervision sampling test (one of or the combination of production on-site sampling or market sampling).
CCAP determines the applicable certification mode for the certification client, according to features of the certification products, principles of certification risk control, and classification management result of the producing enterprise.
4 Classification of certification unit
In principle, the frame, fork and handle of electric bicycle produced by the same- producer (manufacturer) and same producing enterprise (location), and having no significant difference in the following aspects could be classified as one certification unit:
(1) Type (ordinary frame, shock-absorbing frame and folding frame, etc.); (2) Shape (diamond frame, non-diamond frame and others);
(3) Materials (iron, aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy and carbon fiber, etc.). 4.2 Fork
(1) Type (shouldered fork, shoulderless fork and shock-absorbing fork); (2) Materials (iron, aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy and carbon fiber, etc.). 4.3 Handle
(1) Type (fixed handle and combined handle);
(2) Materials (iron, aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy and carbon fiber, etc.). Same-unit may include multiple “models (or specifications)” products. Same-model refers to those products of which the design has no impact to standard compliance. For the same product that is of same manufacturer but of different producing enterprises, or for the same-model product that is of different manufacturers and of same producing enterprise, it may consider to only conduct the type test on the samples of one unit. The products of other producing enterprises / manufacturers shall provide documents for conformity inspection.
5 Certification entrusting
5.1 Proposal and acceptance of certification entrusting
The certification client shall submit a certification entrusting to CCAP in an appropriate mode in accordance with CCAP’s certification process and requirements, and shall be responsible for the authenticity and legality of the certification entrusting materials submitted. The certification client shall be able to assume relevant quality and legal responsibilities. Producers (manufacturers) and producing enterprises of the frame, fork b. Producer's (manufacturer) trademark registration and legal

China. The category of goods approved for trademark use shall cover
frame, fork and handle products of electric bicycle. The legal
authorized use certificate shall be subject to the trademark registrant's signing of the trademark use authorization contract or the record
certificate from the Trademark Office.)
c. If the certification client is the seller or the importer, copies of relevant contract signed between the seller and the producer OR the
importer and the producer shall be provided (when it is the first-time
applicant and when there is change);
d. Power of attorney of the client (when applicable);
4) When entrusting other enterprises for the production of frame, fork and handle products of electric bicycle, the certification client shall also provide CCAP with a copy of the relevant contracts between the
entrusting enterprise and the entrusted enterprise, such as: ODM / OEM
agreement signed between the certification client, the producer
(manufacturer) and the producing enterprise, the power of attorney and a copy of the original ODM certificate (when applicable).
(2) Information of certification product
1) Quality system documents, including:
a. Quality manual (including organization chart and / or responsibility provisions);
b. Directory of production conformity control files. It shall conform
with the relevant requirements specified in Attachment 4;
c. Copy of the obtained quality management system certificate (if any). 2) Product description of the frame, fork and handle of electric bicycle (see Attachment 1, for the first application and parameter change);
3) Production conformity control plan (when it is the first application and when the production conformity control plan changes). Compilation
requirements are shown in Attachment 5;
4) Implementation report of the production conformity control plan. See Attachment 5 for the compilation requirements (every year after
5) CCAP mark addition plan (for the first application and change).
The certification client needs to provide a letter of commitment stating that the above- mentioned materials are authentic and undertake relevant legal responsibilities (including “three guarantees”, “call-back” and relevant quality responsibilities). CCAP is responsible for reviewing, managing, preserving and keeping relevant materials confidential, and informing the certification client of the results of the review. 5.3 Implementation arrangements
The certification client submits the certification entrusting application to CCAP (completed on the CCAP certification platform for clients: http://3c.cccap.org.cn). The normal certification process is as follows:
(1) Review and acceptance of certification entrusting documents;
(2) Division of certification product units and compilation of certification plans; (3) Signing and charging of certification contracts;
(4) Product type test;
(5) Initial factory inspection;
(6) Comprehensive evaluation and approval of type test and factory inspection results;
(7) Issuance of certification certificate;
(8) Post-certification supervision.
The abnormal certification process is: if the type test is not carried out in accordance with the normal certification process and the type test report is directly provided, the type test results can only be determined to be qualified after the test results of all test items comply with the requirements of the certification standards and the type test samples pass the conformity review; if the factory inspection is carried out without completing the type test of the certification products, the certification client needs to submit an application to CCAP, and after obtaining the approval, it may simultaneously perform the inspection.
After accepting the application, CCAP will formulate a certification plan based on the review results and the production enterprise classification principles (Attachment 6). The plan includes:
provided by the certification client. When the laboratory has doubts about the authenticity of the samples, it shall explain the situation to CCAP and handle it accordingly.
126.96.36.199 Quantity of type test samples
(1) Frame of electric bicycle: 7 PCS;
(2) Fork of electric bicycle: 12 PCS;
(3) Handle of electric bicycle: 13 PCS.
For the quantity of test samples for supervision and spot checks, and / or when differences need to be supplemented, the test plan ultimately confirmed by CCAP shall prevail.
The certification client shall ensure that the submitted samples are completely consistent with the actual products produced, including materials, structures and parameters, etc.
188.8.131.52 Critical components / raw materials list and relevant requirements It shall be consistent with the critical components / raw materials in “Production Conformity Control Plan” submitted by the enterprise. The list shall at least include name, model, specification and supplier of the critical components (materials). See Attachment 2 of this Rules for details.
6.1.3 Type test items and testing basis
The type test items and testing basis are shown in the applicable clauses and items of the standards in Article 2 of this Rules. See Attachment 3 for details. 6.1.4 Selection and confirmation of the contracted laboratory
The certification client may select and confirm a testing laboratory within the range of laboratories provided by CCAP for the certification products. According to the client’s confirmation, CCAP shall give inspection commission to the contracted laboratory to conduct type test.
6.1.5 Implementation of type test
Type test shall be completed by the contracted laboratory entrusted by CCAP. The contracted laboratory shall complete the sample test within the stipulated time according to relevant stipulations of CCAP. The laboratory shall make a complete record of the whole test process and put it on file in order to ensure traceability of the test process and results.
If there is unqualified item, the laboratory shall inform the situation to CCAP. If the certification client continues applying for certification, it is allowed to complete rectifications within 3 months after analyzing the causes for the non-conformity, and after the rectifications are completed, it may apply for a re-test. If re-test is required, the certification client shall submit the rectification material to CCAP. CCAP shall reconfirm the re-test plan. In principle, samples that are same-specification as the previous samples shall be selected to conduct all-items test. If it passes the re-test, type test is PASS. If rectifications are not completed within the required time, and / or samples are not provided in accordance with the test plan, and / or the re-test is still NOT-PASS, this certification shall be terminated. The certification client can also apply for cancelling the certification entrusting; after the rectifications are completed, it can re-apply for certification entrusting and conduct the type test.
Type test shall not be longer than 15 working days (from the date when the samples are reached to the contracted laboratory). The time spent on rectifications and retest due to unqualified samples or inspection items is not counted.
6.1.6 Type test report
CCAP stipulates a uniform format for the type test report.
After the type test finishes, the laboratory shall issue a type test report to CCAP. The test report shall be accurate, clear and complete, and include product description within the application unit, and relevant certification information. After the certification completes, CCAP shall send the type test report, together with the certificate (or certification decision), to the certification client. The certification client shall ensure to provide the complete and effective type test report to CCAP and law-enforcement agencies during post-certification supervision.
6.2 Initial factory inspection
Initial factory inspection is an assessment conducted by CCAP on whether the enterprise’s production conformity control system meets the certification requirements. It is conducted in the mode of “production conformity control plan inspection + production conformity factory on-site inspection”.
NOTE: the factory in this Rules involve certification client, producer and producing enterprise. 6.2.1 Basic principle
The producer and producing enterprise shall establish, implement and maintain the production conformity control system according to requirements specified in Attachment 4 and Attachment 5, so as to ensure that the certification products can continuously meet the certification requirements.
CCAP shall inspect the enterprise’s production conformity control system for conformity. In principle, the initial factory inspection shall be completed within a year after passing the type test. Otherwise, product type test shall be made again. In principle, a. The structures and parameters of the certified products shall be consistent with the type test samples and the materials submitted for entrusted certification; b. The identification (such as: name, specification, model and trademark, etc.) of the certified products shall be consistent with the type test report and the materials submitted for entrusted certification;
c. On-site designated test for certified products (the inspection items are drawn from the production conformity control plan).
Usually, the factory on-site inspection takes 2~4 man-days for each factory. It is determined based on the unit-number of certification products, and production scale of the producing enterprise shall be taken into consideration.
184.108.40.206 ODM mode producing enterprise inspection
It shall be conducted according to relevant document requirements of CCAP. When conducting on-site inspection of ODM producer (manufacturer), the number of on-site inspection man-day of each ODM producer (manufacturer) shall not be longer than 0.5 man-days.
220.127.116.11 Results of initial factory inspection
For initial factory inspection, the inspection conclusions are divided into 3 types: “factory inspection is PASS”, “there are non-conformance items, it is PASS after rectification”, and “factory inspection is NOT-PASS”. In which, conditions of each conclusion are as follows:
(1) There is no unqualified item found in the factory inspection, then, the inspection result is “PASS”.
(2) Unqualified items are found in the factory inspection. It is allowed to make rectifications which shall be done within 3 months. After CCAP takes proper ways to verify the rectification results, it is PASS. It is divided as: a) PASS after paper verification: It refers to that there are general unqualified items. After the inspection team makes paper verification of the rectification measures taken by the factory, the factory PASS the inspection;
b) PASS after on-site verification: It refers to that there are unqualified items. After the inspection team makes on-site verification of the rectification measures taken by the factory, the factory PASS the inspection.
(3) The factory inspection result is “NOT-PASS”.
Factory inspection finds that there is a serious deviation between the
implementation of the production conformity control plan and the declared and reviewed and approved production conformity control plan, OR the structure and technical parameters of the actual production products are significantly different from the type test samples; on-site designated test results are unqualified (in principle); key resources do not meet requirements; inspection finds that the certified products have defects or hidden safety hazards, which may cause quality and safety accidents; illegal and illegal use of CCAP marks or certificates; serious dishonest behavior in the factory; or during the suspension of the certification certificate, if the factory does not take rectification measures or fails to pass after the rectifications, the inspection result is unqualified and the inspection shall be terminated.
18.104.22.168 Notification of the factory inspection conclusions
After the factory inspection is completed, the inspection team shall inform the enterprise of the inspection results. If there are non-conformity items founded, it shall propose the verification modes (for example, paper verification or on-site verification) for the corrective measures and clear requirements of rectification time-limit, and also inform the producing enterprise of the verification results in time.
