The Europe-China Standards Information Platform (CESIP) is a practical information tool
that aims at strengthening mutual trade and investment flow between Europe and China by making standards and related technical regulations more accessible. T
his platform is a key tool to support European and Chinese SMEs competitiveness on both internal markets.
The Platform is a web site where Chinese and/or European stakeholders will find information in English and Chinese about the relevant applicable and upcoming standards to be applied to their products when intended for export to China or Europe. European stakeholders will find information not only on national Chinese GB standards (voluntary and mandatory) but also on the relevant industry (sector) standards, normally much more difficult to obtain for foreign companies wanting to do business with China.
The platform is the result of the formal cooperation between CEN, CENELEC, ETSI, the European Commission, EFTA and SAC (the Standardization Administration of China).
The 4 pilot sectors (electrical equipment, medical devices, machinery and environmental protection) are being regularly updated and the platform may be extended to additional sectors in 2012.
The information on the platform is free of charge and includes a feedback module.
