Expert workshop on safety labelling for industrially used products
On 23 October 2015, the third expert workshop of the project line on safety labelling for industrially used products took place in Beijing in the presence of representatives of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine (AQSIQ).
At the event, chaired by Division Director Hao Yilei (AQSIQ) and Division Director Hatto Mattes (BMWi), technical experts and industry representative presented the technical requirements for the two selected pilot product groups – surge protection devices and lithium-ion-batteries. Both sides also presented their proposals for harmonizing safety labelling procedures to differentiate industrially used products.
As a next step, the expert groups of both countries will examine the feasibility of the proposals in order to align a finalized proposal until the end of the year.
