China Standardisation Policy - Recommendations, Settings and Analysis
Standardisation policy should be an instrument for ensuring technical conformity and, as far as possible, uniform interfaces for interoperability and supply chains in different countries and regions. The development of national standards that are not reflected at the international level will be a significant competitive disadvantage in the future. Signs of such nationalization of standards can already be observed.
The People's Republic of China has recognized the strategic importance of standards to achieve industrial and geopolitical goals. Complementing the »Made in China 2025« (MIC2025) strategy, the country is currently developing the »China Standards 2035« program as a central strategy for norms and standards for future technologies. The aim is to set global standards for new technologies. Therefore, this position paper deals with the standardization policy in China and gives an overview of differences and effects. In addition, recommendations for action are outlined to prevent the decoupling of standards at the international level.
