China Net recently reported that the State Council has just announced a plan to enhance a number of different national accreditation systems. Of all of the systems planned, the accreditation standard for information security products was given a top priority. The plan also required a “breakthrough” in the technologies used to establish and enhance the accreditation systems in other key fields, including food safety, carbon emissions, new energy, environmental protection, transportation vehicles, agriculture, biology, medicine, and contemporary services. The plan also called for establishing complete and strengthened national or industry standards, as well as improving China’s capability of participating in the processes of building international standards. The plan also included requirements to expand the technology for measuring and tracing capacities, which should be fully compliant with international metrological standards.
