The national standardization technical committee on electrostatics, SAC/TC 597, was set up by Standardization Administration of China (SAC) recently. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) is in charge of its routine management and operational guidance, and China Electronics Standardization Institute (CESI) undertakes the secretariat.

SAC/TC 597 is responsible for developing and revising national standards for fundamental electrostatic technologies, including electrostatic principles, electrostatic simulation model, testing method, protection and control, etc. The work scope of the technical committee corresponds with IEC/TC 101, Electrostatics.

The next plan of the technical committee is to sort China’s standards for electrostatics, and improve the standards system in this area. It will focus on electrostatic industry analysis, fundamental research, national standards development, international standardization, standards implementation and promotion, etc.
