China-Europe: Information on standards and market requirements Published on: 09/01/2013, Last update: 10/01/2013
The Europe-China Standards Information Platform, or CESIP, is a one-stop-shop for market access information to help businesses internationalise and ultimately strengthen trade between European and Chinese small and medium-sized enterprises, or SMEs.
Different sets of technical regulations, divergent standards and different market access requirements create barriers to trade between China and Europe. To overcome this problem, the new CESIP platform provides detailed information about European and Chinese standards and market access requirements. CESIP currently covers three sectors: machinery, electrical appliances and medical devices.
