This paper mainly describes how to apply for 3C certification in small factories. 3C certification is compulsory certification, which not only requires products to pass relevant testing standards, but also requires factory inspection. Many small factories need to apply for 3C certification, but they are worried that they are too small to be recognized and can not pass. If the manufacturer needs to carry out 3C certification inspection, it only needs the factory to have relevant business data and production lines, to keep some personnel able to produce normally and meet the factory inspection specifications. The scale is not a problem, and the factory can also pass 3C certification inspection. Let’s take a look at the 3C certification process and requirements of the small factory.
1、小工厂办理3C认证流程为/The 3C certification process for small factories is：
Enterprises submit applications > > Data Review > > sample test > > factory inspection > > conformity assessment > > issue certificates, 3C certification query. In the specific implementation of 3C certification application for small factories, it is necessary to meet the hardware part, including the production site, equipment, instruments, personnel and organization, etc., and also to ensure that the software part, including the quality assurance system, procedure documents, control procedures, inspection procedures, management systems, operating procedures, etc., conform to the specifications.
2、3C认证验厂确保能力符合认证有效性、3C certification and factory inspection to ensure the capability meets the certification validity：
(1) 验厂的依据：工厂能力检查要求、认证产品依据的国家标准、认证产品的型式试验报告、认证实施规则;Basis for factory inspection: factory capacity inspection requirements, national standards for certified products, type test reports for certified products, and Implementation Rules for certification;
(2) 验厂的几种结论：工厂检查通过、工厂存在文件性不符合项、工厂存在严重不符合项目，需要现场验证、工厂存在严重不符合项目，工厂检查不通过;Several conclusions of factory inspection: factory inspection is passed, there are documentary nonconformities in the factory, there are serious nonconformities in the factory, field verification is required, there are serious nonconformities in the factory, and the factory inspection is failed;
For the enterprises applying for certification for the first time, the certification agency will send the factory inspection notice to the enterprises applying for certification and issue the factory inspection task letter to the factory inspection team of the certification agency after receiving the report of qualified product test results submitted by the inspection agency;
According to the requirements of the quality assurance ability of product certification factory, inspectors conduct on-site inspection on the enterprises applying for certification, and take certain samples to check the consistency of the test results;
After the factory inspection is qualified, the inspection team shall issue the factory inspection report according to the specified report format and submit it to the certification agency for audit and evaluation;
The time for submitting the report after the factory review is generally 5 working days, calculated from the date when the auditor completes the on-site review and receives the unqualified corrective action report submitted by the manufacturer. Enterprises can apply for 3C certification by themselves or entrust 3C agency to apply. In general, small factories are lack of special personnel in charge of factory system and certification qualification management, and they are not familiar with 3C certification process. It is too troublesome to apply by themselves, which may be time-consuming and laborious, and it is unlikely to pass the application after tossing.
To sum up, 3C certification is the basic compulsory product certification system in China, because it is a very common requirement, on the one hand, it is not as high and unattainable as imagined. But on the other hand, it is not easy. The process of 3C certification is complicated, and the requirements of testing and inspection are very strict, which are very high. If you don’t have a skilled certification method and process, we suggest that you don’t try it rashly to avoid wBESTON TESTing time and money.
