Revised Standardization Law of the People's Republic of China issued
Date: 2017-12-04   

After serving for nearly 30 years since its release in 1988, the Standardization Law of the People's Republic of China was finally revised. The new edition was approved by the 30th meeting of the National People's Congress Standing Committee on November 4.

The revised law coming into force on January 1, 2018 is expected to have significant influences in improving the quality of products and services, promoting the advance of science and technology and boosting economic and social development. It includes all-around regulations concerning the formulation, implementation and supervision as well as administration of standards.

It is stipulated that standards are categorized as national, industry, local, association and enterprise standards. And national standards are classified as mandatory standards and voluntary standards. Both industry and local standards are voluntary standards. Mandatory standards must be applied, while the use of voluntary standards is encouraged.

According to the law, mandatory national standards shall be developed to address technical requirements for ensuring human health, safety of people's life and property, national security and eco-environmental safety, and meeting the basic needs of economic and social management. Texts of mandatory standards shall be publicly accessible for free, and those of voluntary standards shall be encouraged to be publicly accessed for free.

Furthermore, in terms of products and services not in conformity with mandatory standards, production, selling, importing and supply shall be forbidden. The standards review cycle is no longer than five years in general. Reviewed standards that are not fit for economic and social development or technological advancement shall be amended or ablished in time.
