2017-06-30

As economic development gradually shifts from factor-driven to innovation-driven, standardization strategy has become a core element in promoting the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries and leading the vigorous development of emerging industries. Solidly promoting the formulation of more "Chinese standards" will become a strong technical support for the transformation of "Made in China" into "Created in China".

The arrival of "Fuxing" not only brought "China Speed" to the attention of the world again, but also made the Chinese people feel proud of "Chinese Standards". According to a report by Xinhua News Agency on June 27, as a Chinese standard EMU with completely independent intellectual property rights and reaching the world's advanced level, the "Fuxing" can reach a speed of more than 400 kilometers per hour on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway. Among the 254 standards in the development process, "Chinese standards" accounted for 84%.

"Fuxinghao" adopts a large number of Chinese national standards, industry standards, railway enterprise standards and a number of international advanced standards, covering many fields such as signs and logos, communication networks, electronics and electrical, fire safety, among which "Chinese standards" account for 84% , to build the core competitiveness and voice of my country's high-speed rail - our advantages are no longer just price and work speed, but also more confident quality and innovative technology. From "Made in China" to "Chinese Standards", from following to surpassing, the "national business card" of China's high-speed rail is becoming more and more shining.

The word "standard" may be both familiar and unfamiliar to many people. What do standards mean? Take China's high-speed railways as an example. In the past, CRH EMUs were produced in cooperation with different foreign companies. The technical platform standards were not unified. Not only were the driver's operating stations different, but even the cabin capacity and seats were different, which provided emergency response, Failure maintenance and so on bring a lot of inconvenience. The "Fuxing" has established a unified technical standard system to achieve unification of service functions, operation and maintenance, and more fully considers the diversity of the railway operating environment. The standards adopted are more compatible and can be used on various high-speed railways in the future. It will be used on the line and will carry "Chinese standards" to become the main model of China's high-speed rail "going out".

In fact, with the deepening development of economic globalization, standards have become the "universal language" of the world and the "passport" for international trade. Studies show that standards and conformity assessment affect 80% of world trade. As the world's second largest economy and the largest trader of goods, the number of international standards proposed and led by China is increasing year by year. Up to now, China has 367 standard proposals that have become international standards of the International Standards Organization (ISO/IEC). Especially in the fields of high-speed rail, nuclear power, communications, etc., China has achieved a leap from following to leading in international standards. As more and more "Chinese standards" become "international standards", more Chinese companies have obtained the "golden key" to expand the international market.

Regarding the value of "standards", a familiar saying is: third-rate companies make products, second-rate companies make brands, and first-rate companies make standards. To a certain extent, standard setters are also synonymous with industry leaders. Just like Intel established central processor standards and Apple dominated mobile phone application standards, these giants have a firm say in market competition. Chinese companies also
