According to a press release published yesterday, the device received accreditation from the China Quality Certification Center (CQC) very early in the fourth quarter of this year. The CQC found that the device met all required standards regarding safety, RF emission, manufacturing and other standards. Now that the device has received certification, Vuzix can display the CQC logo on the M100 packaging and sell the device in China.

In order to get the device certified, Vuzix partnered with Lenovo to create a Vuzix M100 tailored specifically for the Chinese market. While the device being sold in China is co-branded with Lenovo, it’s pretty similar to the standard Vuzix M100. The main differences between the standard M100 and the co-branded one is that the co-branded pair of smart glasses uses the Chinese language for text, voice recognition and cloud services. And, mapping has also been changed to support China.

The Vuzix M100 is the first pair of smart glasses to get certification from the CQC. The People’s Republic of China has a population of 1.357 billion. Obviously, not everyone in China is going to be interested in the Vuzix M100, but that is still a pretty large market to get into. Vuzix should definitely see a boost in sales because of this certification.

Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix, said:

“We are delighted our products passed the CQC inspection and certification, making the M100 the very first smart glasses to receive this certification for resale in China. This is a major milestone for both our Company and the M100 Smart Glasses. China and the CQC hold very high standards when it comes to approving a product for sale in China with vigorous testing and inspections. With this certification, it shows potential customers and future partners the integrity of our products from a worldwide perspective. The product offering we created and co-branded with Lenovo was specifically designed and custom-tailored for the Chinese market and we are pleased that it is now certified to be shipped to end customers in China.”
