The ANSI in China newsletter is available in two versions. The first is written in Mandarin Chinese with content targeted toward a China-based audience of both ANSI members and partner organizations. Past issues are also publicly available. The second version is written in English with content targeted toward a U.S.-based audience. The debut edition of the English version is publicly available, while the second, third, and all future editions are exclusive to ANSI members only.

Headlines from the third English issue include:

  • Standardization reform updates, including the draft China Standardization Law. The deadline for public comment is April 21, 2016 [see related article for more information]
  • Updates on standards development activities in China, including Quality Management for E-commerce.
  • Chinese government policy updates, including China RoHS II

Editorial contributions for upcoming ANSI in China newsletter editions are gladly accepted for review and possible publication, subject to revision by the editors. Please submit proposed news items, send questions and comments on China’s standardization reform, and provide any other feedback on the newsletter to china@ansi.org.

About the ANSI China Program

In addition to reporting standards-related activities in China, ANSI’s China Program has a direct and growing role in fostering greater U.S.-China cooperation in the areas of standardization and conformity assessment. On April 25, 2016, ANSI will host a one-day conference on “Sino-U.S. Cooperation and the Internationalization of Standardization” with a high-level delegation from the Standardization Administration of China (SAC). Registration for this event is now open.
