Press release date: September 14, 2012

A delegation from the Certification and Accreditation Administration of China (CNCA) led by Liu Weijun, CNCA chief engineer, visited Washington, DC, on June 13 for a series of meetings with U.S. government and private sector organizations.

A priority during the visit was the U.S.-China Conformity Assessment and Market Access Seminar, held at the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC). During the seminar, CNCA discussed recent developments in the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) program, perspectives on certification in the U.S., and opportunities for foreign conformity assessment bodies in China. Participants included representatives of the public and private sectors in the U.S. and China. The seminar was led by Mr. Liu along with Craig Allen, deputy assistant secretary for Asia with DOC, and Mary Saunders, director of the standards coordination office at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

During the visit, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and CNCA celebrated the launch of additional conformity assessment information on the StandardsPortal. Originally launched in 2006, the portal includes information on the standards system of China developed in cooperation with the Standardization Administration of China (SAC). The new information included by CNCA will provide additional resources to stakeholders in both countries about the certification and accreditation programs used in China. Speaking at the launch ceremony, ANSI vice president of international policy Gary Kushnier said that “standards and conformity assessment issues are one of the top concerns of U.S. companies doing business in China, and we’re happy to continue to meet this need through broad cooperation with CNCA.”

The new information on conformity assessment was developed as a deliverable of the ANSI-CNCA Memorandum of Understanding, signed in 2008.
