Standards on health protection and disaster management ensure the effective handling of public health emergencies, ensure safety, and form a comprehensive emergency plan system in disaster response through standardization.
Standards on ecological environment improve the system of standards for agriculture and rural areas, improve the rural ecological environment, and provide quantitative support for China’s sustainable development and ecological environment.
Standards on transport, shipping industry, furniture, and gas-burning appliances provide technical basis for manufacturing, research and development, and promote product quality and technical development.
Standards on management systems and social services improve the occupational health and safety management level of organizations, reduce cities’ operational costs, and guide the healthy development of industries.
On January 17, SESEC held a webinar for “What has changed for China’s CCC during the last 18 months” in its Beijing office. Dr. Betty XU, director of the SESEC project, introduced the development of China’s CCC reform within the past 18 months, summarized the major changes, and analyzed the impacts these changes would bring about to overseas stakeholders. Around 180 overseas stakeholders registered for the webinar, of which 81% were from the EU. Among the EU registrants, 77% were from industry and 11% from SDOs.
The SESEC project has always been devoted to facilitating European standardization stakeholders’ understanding of China’s distinct systems. CCC is a basic market access system for products related to health, safety and environmental protection. In the past two years, the system has gone through a substantial reform, which has had remarkable impacts on business. SESEC organized the webinar on China’s CCC to help European stakeholders gain a comprehensive view on this reform. In the future, SESEC will keep selecting standardization hot topics and organize webinars to introduce and analyze them for European stakeholders. We are also looking forward to your kind suggestions to help improve our webinars.
There are currently two technologies for Internet of Vehicles (IoV) communication: LTE-V2X and DSRC. China has adopted the LTE-V2X technology in its IoV standard system and a number of local SDOs and associations are developing relevant standards. SESEC summarized and analyzed the standardization work and drafted a short report on it, which can be found at the link below.
The SESEC project has always been devoted to facilitating mutual understanding on the standardization systems in Europe and China for our stakeholders. In the future, SESEC will continually pick out hot topics and invite corresponding experts to introduce or analyze them.
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.
This webinar will be on Jan 16, 2020 10:00 AM CET.Please register at:
“China Standards 2035” is a program that aims to research standardization strategies to use as a basis for China’s own standardization strategy while considering its economic and social development goals for the year 2035. The project officially started in March 1, 2018, and was developed by SAC, under the leadership of its director TIAN Shihong, who is also Deputy Director of SAMR. Dr. Betty XU, the Seconded European Standardization Expert in China, will introduce the China Standards 2035 project.

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.
