The 9th Northeast Asia Standards Cooperation Forum
The 9th Northeast Asia Standards Cooperation Forum was held on 20-21 July 2010 (Tue & Wed) in Toyama City, Japan, with government standardization agencies, private standards bodies and prominent experts in the field from China, Japan and Korea participating. The Forum has convened annually since 2002 to foster greater coordination of action and cooperation among the three countries of Northeast Asia in international standardization and therefore to boost the region's influence in ISO/IEC. The 9th Forum was hosted by Japan (JSA International Standardization Activities Support Center acting as its secretariat) and drew 112 participants, of which 55 represented Japan, 25 from China and 32 from Korea.
In the morning of July 20 (Tue), the representatives of the three governments addressed the audience, speaking on the respective government's standardization activities, programs, etc. These addresses were followed by presentations from the national standardization committees on the state of progress in collaboration projects and reports from experts in the fields on the current status of 10 ongoing collaboration projects. In the afternoon of the same day, cooperation in 17 new projects was proposed-specifically, 4 proposals from Japan, 6 from China and 7 from Korea.
On the following day (21 Jul.), resolutions based on the discussions of the previous day were studied and passed as the Resolutions of the 9th Northeast Asia Standards Cooperation Forum 20-21 July 2010, Toyama, Japan*. The forum ended in success and with hope for further advancement of the Forum and of international standardization.
The next 10th Northeast Asia Standards Cooperation Forum is scheduled to be held in June 2011 in Busan City, Korea.
