The novel development of the French technology group NAWA is a combination of carbon nanotubes, conventional ultracapacitors and Li-ion batteries. Lamborghini already uses these components in its V-12 Aventador model. The CEO of Nawa, Ulrik Grape, announced that with this technology, his company is producing exactly what the automotive industry needs right now – a fast-charging energy storage for hybrid cars. However, one disadvantage of the Ultra-Fast Carbon batteries, their storage capacity is only 10-20 percent of a Li-ion battery.
Ultra-Fast Carbon technology is more expensive than conventional batteries in terms of energy density, but mostly uses carbon for its production. This allows easier recycling and has a low impact on the environment unlike other storage technologies that use heavy metals and rare earths.
Constructed as a capacitor, NAWA’s hybrid batteries can be charged and discharged within seconds and have a lifetime of over a million charge cycles. In addition to the planned application in the automotive industry, the batteries can also be used in general industry, aerospace, power tools and small vehicles. The batteries could also play a key role in storing electricity in the so-called smart grids.
The company NAWA Technologies was created by a spin-off from parts of a French state Energy Authority in 2013. NAWA aims at premium car manufacturers from Europe with its hybrid batteries and would like to start serial production in 2022. Lamborghini is already interested in the great potential of these supercapacitors and works with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on a luxury sports car powered entirely by an electric motor. Lamborghini’s concept car “Terzo Millennio” (Third Millennium) launched by Lamborghini last week, uses supercapacitors and Lamborghini already uses low-voltage capacitors in its serial car V-12 Aventador.
Vehicles, including electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, require CCC certification in China.

The various costs associated with certification will depend on the products.
The certification itself involves:
- Application fee
- Product test fees
- Inspection fees
- Travel costs and related expenses for the auditors
- Fees for the permission of printing of the CNCA
You must also consider the cost of an interpreter, the cost of the
products sent for testing as well as the employee time that it takes to
prepare and handle the certification process, particularly if this is
done without the aid of advisory firm.
When forms are filled out incorrectly, tests and/or audits must be
repeated incurring additional, unnecessarily high costs. Likewise,
improper CCC markings will result in deliveries being detained by
Chinese customs and additional fees may be levied.
Below is an example of the cost of CCC certification
for two vehicle headlights. (Note: the example does not include
consulting fees or the cost of a translator.)
By hiring a professional certification advisory firm,
problems can be avoided from the outset, thereby reducing the risk of
running up additional costs. Furthermore, through the assistance of
certification advisors, the CCC mark is obtained quickly, greatly
reducing opportunity costs incurred by delayed product launches.
Our offers are very transparent, as we list all costs individually. The quoted total price will include all certification fees and related costs.
We also assume all risks associated with exchange rates and authority
fee increases. Our expert interpreters assure smooth communication with
the Chinese auditors during the audits.

Our introduction video gives an overview of the necessary steps involved in getting CCC certification.
Chinese regulations and requirements for CCC of vehicles and automotive parts are detailed and numerous.
Deadlines must be strictly observed, product tests are rigorous, audits
are thorough and the change management needs to be strategically
It is important to clarify if certification is mandatory for specific products,
summarizing the products in the certification units, and to identify
which factory will be audited. Typically, the factory where either the
complete product is made or the last quality assurance steps are taken
is the one to be audited.
Here you will find more information about CCC certification of interior parts and CCC for automotive suppliers automotive suppliers.
It can be very difficult to determine all of the required tests and
regulations. Our experience and contacts with the Chinese certifying
authorities allow us to properly identify which tests will be required,
as well as any exceptions the vehicle or part would qualify for where no
or less tests would be required.

In China, the GB Standards apply. Please refer to the following pages to check which GB Standard applies for your product. If your product is not listed, it may not need CCC.
Manufacturers holding CCC certificates for their products must comply with the applicable Chinese regulations for CCC certification compliance (the official Implementation Rules and GB standards).
The applicant/certificate holder is responsible to announce any planned relevant changes by submitting the required applications and to implement changes only after approval by the Chinese authorities.
Notifiable changes include the following items:
Changes regarding the product design
Changes regarding the product structure (e.g. adding a material layer on an interior automotive part)
Changes regarding a “key component” (e.g. changing the tank cap of an automotive fuel tank)
Changes of a raw materials
Changes of suppliers
Changes in organizational structure (e.g. change of CCC responsible person)
Changes made by the Chinese certifying authority that require certificate updates include:
Updated GB standards
Updated Implementation Rules
The CCC Implementation Rules explicitly state that only the responsible certification body will decide if an official change application must be filed and what the corresponding consequences for the certificate holder will be.
If there is a change in the responsible person for 3C at the plant, only administrative procedures will be necessary to register this change and the authority will issue a
In case there are major changes regarding the certified product itself, the applicant may be required to send samples for testing in China.
If the production line is going to be shifted, or the entire factory will be re-located, Chinese authorities will typically require a new initial CCC certification or at the very least a factory inspection of the new facility by Chinese auditors.
CCC certificate holders often report changes which have already been implemented during their annual audit. However, this is not the accepted way to notify the Chinese authorities of changes. Factories run the risk of non-conformance and possibly even suspension or revocation of their certificate if they do not follow the prescribed procedures for change management set forth by the Implementation Rules.
The Chinese authorities constantly work on improving the GB standards. As soon as a new GB standard becomes mandatory all changes in certificates and new CCC certifications need to comply with the new GB standard. Holders of CCC certificates that are in compliance with the old GB standards will have to apply for a change of GB standard within the deadline specified by the Chinese certification authority and will be required to do product re-tests according to the new GB standard.
The framework of the CCC certificates are determined by the “Implementation Rules”. Every product group has its own Implementation Rules where the
CCC certification process, CCC certificate characteristics and regulations regarding the marking permission are set. When the Chinese certification authorities issue new Implementation Rules, certificate holders are responsible to apply for a change of certificate within a certain time frame after the Implementation Rule change has been officially announced.
Valid certificates are required to comply with the most current GB standards and Implementation Rules. If certificate holders do not apply for a change of their certificate within the allotted timeframe, they run the risk of non-conformance and possibly even suspension or revocation of their certificate.
If you are unsure whether you have made notifiable changes on your products without informing the authorities or if you plan to implement changes and you don’t know whether you need to file a change application, contact us and we will consult with the relevant Chinese institution(s) and get back with you regarding what you will need to do. We look forward to assisting you with any of your required certificate changes.
We can also let you know of any new GB Standard(s) or Implementation Rules that apply to your product, and inform you if a ccc china certification change will be required.

Some time ago we have already published news regarding the 15 new implementation rules for the CCC Certification of automotive components
implemented in August 2014 by the Chinese authority CNCA (Certification
and Accreditation Administration). These regulations officially took
effect from January 1st, 2015.
Within those 15 new implementation rules, there is also an updated version for fuel tanks. The current version’s number is CNCA-C11-11:2014.
If you want to learn more about the updates concerning the new
implementation rules, do not hesitate to contact us at any time. One of
our consultants will be glad to help you and answer all of the questions
you might have.
Already existing CCC certificates must be updated until January 1st, 2017.
Certificates, which do not contain the new number CNCA-C11-12:2014,
will then be temporarily suspended and eventually completely erased from
the CNCA database.

The process of CCC certification
can be confusing and frustrating to figure out. Manufacturers usually
assign their quality engineers or officers with the daunting task of
getting their products certified. Unfortunately, on official
governmental websites there is no clear path laid out to explain the
process. The lack of clarity and language/communication barriers
combined with the necessity to deal with the Chinese authorities can
make the certification process seem overwhelming.
MPR China Certification GmbH / China Certification
Corporation released a video which clearly illustrates the process of
CCC certification, breaking it down to manageable steps.
The two-minute video gives a broad over-view of the necessary steps involved in getting
The video points out specific areas of importance including application
preparation, need for test samples to be sent and cleared through
customs in China, and the importance of consistency between the
application, test reports, CCC certificate and printing permission.
The video is available on MPR China Certification GmbH / China Certification Corporation’s website, Youtube channel and on the social media profiles of the company, google+ and facebook. It is available in both English and German.
