Like the European CE system, China’s CCC (China Compulsory Certification) system is a basic market access system that manufacturers and importers usually confront when putting their products on the Chinese market. The system was first established in 2002 in support of the Chinese government’s commitment to the WTO, and 132 kinds of products within 19 categories were included into its scope. The number of products under the CCC scope kept increasing in the following years until the latest round of the CCC reform was initiated by the State Council in 2018, removing dozens of products from the CCC scope. Dr. Betty XU, the Seconded European Standardization Expert in China, will introduce the recent development of China CCC system.

Blockchain is a new application of computer technology generated from Bitcoin, which is in nature a decentralized database. As the fundamental technology of Bitcoin, blockchain is a series of data blocks associated using cryptographic methods, which are used to verify the validity of the information (anti-counterfeiting) and generate the next block. Public, consortium and private blockchains are widely used in finance, IoT, logistics, insurance and other sectors. After the release of the first China standard on blockchain: Blockchain—Reference Architecture, the stakeholders involved became more and more aware of the significance of blockchain standardization. As a result, SESEC IV will hold Webinar 08 to briefly introduce the development of China standardization in the area of blockchain.
On September 10, 2019 (Tuesday), SESEC IV will hold its Webinar 08 on “Current Status of China Blockchain Standardization” between 9:30 – 10:30am, Brussels time. SESEC will invite Ms. Jianong LI and Ms. Lin SUN, experts from CESI (China Electronics Standardization Institute), to give a one-hour introduction in English.
Ms. Jianong LI, an engineer in the Software Engineering and Evaluation Center in CESI, is the lead author of China blockchain technology and application development white paper (2016) and Research report on China blockchain technology and application development (2018). With experience in the development of blockchain standards, she engaged in the planning and editing of China’s national standard Blockchain and Distributed Ledger-Reference Architecture, which serves as the basis for ISO/CD 23257.
Ms. Lin SUN, also an engineer in the Blockchain Research Department at the Software Engineering and Evaluation Center in CESI, is one of the experts of ISO/TC 307 WG6 Use Cases. She is an expert of the IEEE Data Format for Blockchain Systems (C/SAB/DBC) working group and the co-author of Research report on China blockchain technology and application development (2018).
On 27 June, the Seconded European Standardization Expert in China (SESEC) organized a webinar on “New Energy Vehicle Standardization in China” in its Beijing office. Mr. Shawn XU, senior standardization engineer from the Auto Standardization Institute of the China Automotive Technology and Research Centre (Secretariat of SAC/TC114 on Auto Standardization), made a brief introduction of the NEV standard system in China, of which he underlined some key standards concerning vehicle safety, battery safety and charging safety. He also mentioned the annual plan of the standard system and important fields before he made the conclusion. Over 50 participants joined the online meeting.
SESEC project has always been devoting to facilitate European standardization stakeholders’ understanding on China’s distinct standardization system. New energy vehicle is a major emerging standardization area, and China has built up a NEV standard system which has basically met the needs of NEV industry. To help European stakeholders get a comprehensive view on this system, SESEC organized this webinar. In the future, SESEC will continually pick out hot topics and invite corresponding experts to make introduction or analysis on them. We are also looking forward to your kind suggestions and opinions for the continuous improvement of our webinars.
On 11 June, the Seconded European Standardization Expert in China (SESEC) organized a webinar on “China AI Standardization and Regulations” in its Beijing office. Dr. Betty Xu, expert of the SESEC project, made a comparison between EU’s and China’s AI standardization systems and introduced in details the Chinese system, including its key policies and regulations, regulators, standardizers and standard system framework, etc. Over 110 participants jointed the online meeting.
SESEC project has always been devoting to promote and extend European standardization stakeholders’ understanding on China’s distinct standardization system. Artificial intelligence is a major emerging standardization area, and China has developed a relatively complete standardization system on it in the past few years. To help European stakeholders have a comprehensive view on the system, SESEC organized the webinar. In the future, SESEC will continually pick out some hot topics and invite relevant experts to make introduction or analysis on them. We are also looking forward to your kind suggestions and opinions to help us make continuous improvements.
On 24th January, SESEC held the 4th webinar on “Progress of IEC 60601 transformation in China” in Beijing’s office. Dr. Zheng Jia, senior researcher of China food and drug testing and research institute, was invited to deliver a substantial presentation in English. As GB 9706（ IEC 60601）plays a very important role in China’s medical device supervision and industry, Dr. Zheng introduced the progress of IEC 60601-1 transformation and progress of IEC 60601-1-x，IEC 60601-2-x transformation. Over 50 European partners and stakeholders joined the 2 hours’ webinar and discussed together with Dr. Zheng a series of popular common concerns.
In order to promote the understanding of China’s inspection and management on Cyber and Information Security, SESEC held the 3rd webinar on “Cyber Security Laws and Standards in China” in Beijing office on 17th January.
