CMA is short for China Metrology Accredidation. It is a mark of qualified measurement certification by a testing organization, and the organization with this mark is an inspection agency that is legal in China and authorized by the national or provincial measurement certification management department.
Institutions engaged in social-oriented testing and inspection of products in China must be reviewed by the national, provincial, and municipal metrological certification management agencies in conjunction with the review agency, and they can only engage in testing and inspection activities after they are established or authorized by law. Therefore, CMA is mandatory.
