Standards provide vigorous support for meeting people’s demands for better consumption and life. By implementing the related requirements of National Standardization Development Outline, SAMR (SAC) has made great efforts to create a safe and secure consumption environment by standards.

Standards lead a better life


In terms of improving the quality of daily life and consumption, GB/T 21720-2022, Management technical specification for markets of agricultural products, has been revised to promote the quality upgrading of farmers’ market and bring consumers with good consumption experience. The national standards on safety requirements for flat glasses and audio and video equipment have been published to improve the security of mobile phones and tablets and protect consumers’ personal and property safety. The revised national standard on road traffic signs has added 18 new traffic signs to raise the level of traffic service and facilitate people’s daily travelling. And GB 18030-2022, Information technology—Chinese coded character set, has been published to resolve people’s difficulty in rare word input in daily life.


In terms of meeting the demands of special groups, 16 national standards related to products for the seniors such as GB/T 42195-2022, Specification for ability assessment of older adults, and 15 standards for infant and children’s products such as GB/T 41002-2022, General specification for children's case and bag, have been published to make life more convenient for the seniors and protect the safety of children.


Standards support high-quality development


In terms of following the development trends of emerging and high-quality consumption, 177 standards on consumer products such as GB/T 18801-2022, Air cleaner, have been published to lead the quality improvement and upgrading of consumption. Six national standards on e-commerce such as GB/T 41714-2022, Agricultural service—Specification for electronic commerce service of fresh agriculture products, six national standards on e-platform security and four national standards on biometric recognition have been published to safeguard consumers’ data security in the application of technologies.

Another five national standards on tourism and leisure activities have been published, and the standards on green take-out and central kitchen are being developed, which are expected to resume tourism, catering and accommodation industries.


Standards empower quality upgrading


In terms of meeting consumers’ new demands and expectation for a better life, 123 international standards on articles for seniors and children and daily consumer goods have been adopted as national standards, which will help the standards on consumer goods to be geared to international standards, strengthen the cultivation of association standards, and unleash the inner vitality of market-led standards.


To promote the forerunners of enterprise standards and carry out the action on standards comparison and compliance for enterprises, 658 enterprise standards now become the forerunners, demonstrating the normative and guiding role of standards in improving product and service quality and satisfying diversified consumption demands.
