International gatherings in China


Since early this year, we have all witnessed the revitalized international standardization community through more face-to-face communications. In June, two international standardization gatherings took place in China.

In the SPECIAL REPORT column, the International Standardization (Chilin) Forum focusing on the theme of “driving the transition to an all-electric society” was held in Nanjing, capital of East China’s Jiangsu province, on June 7-8. Three IEC white papers were released with the concerted efforts of experts from China, Germany, France, the U.S., Japan, Italy and other countries.

In the SPOTLIGHT column, the 2023 Qingdao Forum on International Standardization was held on June 9, which has demonstrated China’s experience of standards development, further enhanced the exchanges with the international community, and explored the role of standards in promoting green, low-carbon and high-quality development.

The Qingdao Initiative: International Standards for Green, Low-carbon and High-quality Development was released, a MoU was signed by SAC and African Electrotechnical Standardization Commission (AFSEC), IEC Statement on Supporting Capacity Building in China was announced, and the agreement on the International Standardization Training Base (Qingdao) was extended by ISO, SAC and Qingdao Municipal Government.

Besides, in the EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW column, an interview with Wu Chengbing, Director General of Shandong Provincial Administration for Market Regulation, prior to the Qingdao event, may serve as an overture with insights into the local standardization practice.

The AD HOC column gives an introduction to the Annual Report on China Standardization Development (2022), which was released by SAMR (SAC) in April. It presents the standardization data and standardization priorities in 2022, and gives the prospects for future standardization development.

In the FEATURES column, you can find the list of winners of the second and third prize of the Standard Project Award in the China Standards Innovation and Contribution Award 2022, which was unveiled in late March.

With increasing exchanges and cooperation, a more promising and dynamic undertaking of international standardization is right ahead of us!
