Amy WangAEM's Amy Wang was recently recognized for her outstanding contributions to the Chinese National Earthmoving Machinery Technical Committee.

Established in 2008 by the Standardization Administration of China, the committee is comprised of 150-plus earthmoving industry experts and professionals. Wang was one of just four of its members to be honored for their efforts and accomplishments.

“I’m very excited and honored to win this special award commemorating my active involvement in the committee’s work since it was first established, as it signifies the recognition of AEM’s many contributions to the Chinese earthmoving machinery industry sector,” said Wang.

Through her work with AEM China, Wang has helped educate and assist the Chinese National Earthmoving Machinery Technical Committee to more actively participate in ISO/TC 127 meetings and activities, to get more familiar and comfortable with the ISO standards development process, and to adopt more ISO standards in Chinese non-road industry sectors (as opposed to creating unique standards and regulations based on product performance).

To date, roughly 75 percent of all existing national standards on earthmoving machines are ISO standards adoptions, and an AEM China technical representative was actively involved in all of the adoption processes. By 2010, AEM had successfully persuaded and assisted China to adopt the ISO 20474 series of standards on earthmoving machinery safety as Chinese national standards, and now in 2018, AEM has been working to help China adopt the latest updated 2017 versions of the ISO 20474 safety standards.

Wang is currently employed as AEM’s technical and safety manager, a role in which she is tasked with monitoring, analyzing, communicating and influencing key policy, regulatory, standards and safety issues in the Chinese market on behalf of AEM member companies. Her work, along with that of her colleagues in AEM’s China office in Beijing, helps ensure the product compliance of AEM members in China and facilitates trade by diminishing or eliminating technical trade barriers.

An employee of AEM since 2005, Wang graduated from the Mechanical Engineering School of the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a M.E. degree in advanced robotic science.
