Influencing Technical Standardization Settings in China?
There is an old saying that ”Those who owns the standards, owns the market”. It is therefore not surprising that China has made considerable efforts to increase its influence in standard setting in recent years with focus on future technologies as outlined in the CM2025 plan. We now not only have three competing systems (US, Europe and now China), in which Europe seems to lose ground, but with the further complication that Chinas approach to standardization is distinct from European and international practice. This webinar will among others cover Chinas advances so far, Europe’s ambitions in this area and ends with a presentation of a foreign company’s ability to be involved in shaping technical standard setting in China. The webinar targets everyone interested in working with standards in China.
The presentation will be undertaken by Tim Rühlig, a research fellow at the German Council on foreign relations and an associate research fellow at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, who together with the EU China Chamber of Commerce were the authors to “the shape of things to come: The Race to control - Technical Standardisation” as well as a joint presentation by Marie Skou, Head of Department and Pouline Terpager, Chief Consultant; both at Dansk Standard.
