In recent years, China has become one of the world’s leading economic powerhouses, with a growing demand for electronic and wireless products. However, as the country has its own regulatory standards, it can be challenging for foreign businesses to navigate the legal requirements for market access. One of the most critical certifications for electronic and wireless products is the China SRRC certification.

What is the State Radio Regulatory Commission (SRRC)?

The State Radio Regulatory Commission (SRRC) was established in 2001 and is responsible for regulating the use of radio frequencies in China. It is an integral part of China’s government and is responsible for regulating all radio communication equipment that is used in China. The SRRC sets standards for radio communications equipment and ensures that all equipment operates within acceptable electromagnetic interference levels.

What is SRRC certification?

The SRRC certification is a mandatory process for electronic products that use radio frequencies in China. This certification is required by law, and it ensures that electronic products meet the technical standards set by the SRRC. The SRRC certification process includes testing and evaluation of electronic products to ensure that they are safe and meet the technical standards set by the SRRC.

Why is SRRC certification important?

The SRRC certification is important for companies that want to market their electronic products in China. Without this certification, electronic products cannot be legally sold in China. The certification also ensures that electronic products are safe and do not interfere with other radio frequencies in China. Moreover, the SRRC certification is a requirement for companies that want to register their products with the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) system.

What are the consequences of not having SRRC Certification?

The consequences of not having SRRC certification include legal penalties, product recalls, and damage to brand reputation. Selling electronic products without SRRC certification is illegal in China and can result in legal penalties, including fines and product recalls. Moreover, electronic products that do not meet the technical standards set by the SRRC can cause interference with other radio frequencies and damage the brand reputation of the company.

Which product require China SRRC certification?

There are several products that require China SRRC certification. Here are a few examples:

  • 1. Electronic devices: any electronic device that utilizes radio frequencies, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular technology, needs to obtain China SRRC certification. This includes smartphones, tablets, laptops, wireless routers, and other devices that connect to the internet.
  • 2. Medical devices: medical devices that use radio frequencies, such as wireless medical telemetry systems (WMTS), need to obtain China SRRC certification before being sold in the country. This is important to ensure that these devices operate safely and do not interfere with other medical equipment.
  • 3. Automotive products: automotive products that use radio frequencies, such as GPS systems, keyless entry systems, and in-car entertainment systems, need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that these systems do not interfere with other electronic devices and operate safely while driving.
  • 4. Toys: toys that use radio frequencies, such as remote-controlled cars and drones, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the toys do not interfere with other electronic devices and operate safely.
  • 5. Industrial equipment: industrial equipment that uses radio frequencies, such as wireless sensors and remote monitoring systems, needs to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the equipment operates safely and does not interfere with other electronic devices.
  • 6. Home appliances: home appliances that use radio frequencies, such as smart home devices, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the devices operate safely and do not interfere with other electronic devices in the home.
  • 7. Audio and video equipment: audio and video equipment that uses radio frequencies, such as wireless speakers and headphones, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the equipment operates safely and does not interfere with other electronic devices.
  • 8. Lighting products: lighting products that use radio frequencies, such as smart lighting systems, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the lighting systems operate safely and do not interfere with other electronic devices in the home.
  • 9. Security systems: security systems that use radio frequencies, such as wireless cameras and alarms, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the security systems operate safely and do not interfere with other electronic devices.
  • 10. Wearable devices: wearable devices that use radio frequencies, such as smartwatches and fitness trackers, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the devices operate safely and do not interfere with other electronic devices.
  • 11. Gaming devices: gaming devices that use radio frequencies, such as wireless controllers and headsets, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the devices operate safely and do not interfere with other electronic devices.
  • 12. Other products: other products that use radio frequencies, such as drones, remote controls, and wireless charging pads, also need to obtain China SRRC certification. This is important to ensure that the products operate safely and do not interfere with other electronic devices.

It’s important to note that the specific certification requirements may vary depending on the product category, frequency range, and intended use. Manufacturers and importers should consult the SRRC guidelines and regulations to determine the exact certification requirements for their products.

If you are looking for more detailed information or if you have specific products in mind, I recommend visiting the official SRRC website or consulting with a professional certification agency that specializes in SRRC compliance such as GTG.
