China is taking bold steps to simplify and open access to important industrial standards. The Chinese government has announced plans to offer all mandatory standards available to the public for free by 2018 and all standards by 2020. This initiative, if fully executed, will place China at the forefront of openness and transparency when it comes to industrial standards. In contrast, most European and North American countries require companies to purchase copies of the standards from a variety of bodies and in a variety of closed formats – making compliance most costly and complex. Here is a link to the document concerning 2020 open standard program in China.

The key paragraphs from the Government Announcement as as follows:

(A) the contents of the public.

1. National standard text, that is approved by the release of the national standard text (including amendments);
2. National standard information, including: standard number, standard Chinese name, standard English name, release date, date of implementation, publishing department, international standard classification number;
3. National standard system revision information, including: standard pre-project information, standard plan bulletin, standard draft, standard release announcement, the standard abolition notice, the standard review results.

(B) the way of disclosure.

The National Standards Committee and the relevant departments of the State Council, respectively, in its official website has been approved to publish or jointly issued the national standard text, title information and revision information, to provide national standard text free online reading.

The published national standards are open for two phases.

  1. The first stage: 2018 before the end of the mandatory national standards to achieve free of charge to the public; non-standard recommended national standards to achieve free of charge to the public.
  2. The second stage: before the end of 2020, in compliance with international (foreign) standards organization copyright policy under the premise of the adoption of the recommended national standards to achieve free of charge to the public.
