Policy on Application of Standards
In line with the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade, Hong Kong, China's policy is to use international standards as far as possible and align domestic standards with international standards where appropriate.
Hong Kong, China does not have a central standards body developing and issuing domestic standards. Our regulatory agencies use standards as and when necessary, and avoid the position where the setting of standards dictates market development or becomes a means of protecting certain sectors of the industry. More information on standards used in Hong Kong, China is available on Standards, Regulations and Conformity Assessment Database.
