Standards should not present barriers. People and business need to build collaborative relationships. CSA initiated discussions with leading standards authorities in China, agreeing to share best practices, provide training and information products, and develop markets in selected product areas. With a Memorandum of Understanding with the Standardization Administration of China and a new office for CSA, our presence in China continues to expand.
China has one of the world's fastest growing economies - and is a favoured source of products bound for North America and elsewhere. CSA International mobilized an expanded North American-International Services Team to meet demand for timely certification services in China. Specialists in power tools, audio visual products, protective equipment, and gas appliances and components were added to the already strong local electrical team of experts. QMI opened an office in Beijing and also provides client service from Shanghai and Guangzhou.
