Quality Standards & Quarantine (TBT/SPS)
This component addresses issues relating to the implementation of the TBT and SPS Agreements in China. This affects the quality infrastructure of the country and addresses the need for a transition from a system of governmental technical regulations to market oriented voluntary standards prepared by interested stakeholders. Conformity assessment procedures of products and technical standards are developed in a similar way. Special emphasis is given to issues of food safety, animal health and plant protection, and therefore to relevant international standards and the role of scientific advice in this context.
