Starting a new chapter


Learning from the past, we can live in the present and prepare for the future.


At the beginning of 2023, we selected 10 major events and 10 influential experts in the standardization field as well as 10 Chinese standards attracting the most attention in 2022, to display the outstanding achievements in the last year.


We also presented you the interview with Mr Esfandiar Gharibaan, Chairman of CEN/TC 10 and Vice President of Codes and Standards in KONE Corporation, who introduces the developmental trend of the lift and escalator industry, and the big role of EU Harmonised Standards in improving the safety of lifts and reducing costs. He also expounds on how experts from SMEs and consumers involve in developing an EU standard, and the cooperation between China and Europe in this field.


“European standardization is a transparent and inclusive process. All stakeholders and interested parties are welcome to join and to contribute to the work... Currently, European and Chinese standards are almost identical. This alignment is not only crucial for facilitating smoother trade between the two parties, but also essential for the trade worldwide,” said Gharibaan.


The SPECIAL REPORT column introduces a significant report on the standardization of intelligent manufacturing in China published in November 2022. It summarizes the developmental process of intelligent manufacturing and relevant standards from 2015 to 2022, and the vital role of standards in driving innovation and facilitating industrial development.


As China faces the population aging issue, the article in the STANDARDS PRACTICE column tells you what makes Foshan’s elderly care program stand out. Foshan city in South China’s Guangdong province uses standards to lay a solid foundation for senior care programs, and help build a world that the elderly could live in harmony, peace and love.


Now, let’s wave a goodbye to 2022 and embrace the New Year!
