AEM's Amy Wang has been honored for her work in helping to develop machinery and equipment standards in China.
SAC/TC 328, the Chinese National Technical Committee on Building Construction Machinery and Equipment, recently named Wang one of the committee’s two “Honorary Members of Year.”
It was the first time that the committee had bestowed such honors. The other honoree is the committee Chairman. Wang is technology and safety manager in AEM’s China office.
SAC/TC 328 is the Chinese mirror committee to ISO/TC 195, Technical Committee on Building Construction Machinery and Equipment. The secretariat of SAC/TC 328 is located in the Beijing Institute of Construction Mechanization.
Along with its two sub-committees, TC 328 has about 100 members representing manufacturers, research institutes, test centers and government agencies. TC 328 has developed 20 currently valid Chinese national standards and is responsible for their revision.
AEM has collaborated with the secretariats and technical committees for both TC 328 and SAC/TC 334, the Chinese National Technical Committee on Earthmoving Machinery, for nearly 20 years. SAC/TC 334 is the Chinese mirror committee to ISO/TC 127, Technical Committee on Earthmoving Machinery.
During that time, AEM has helped facilitate the adoption of 89 percent of ISO/TC 195 standards and over 95 percent of ISO/TC 127 standards as Chinese national regulatory requirements or national standards, so that China does not develop unique regional regulations and standards which would create technical trade barriers.
In 2015, AEM China was given the honorary title as “National Leading Organization in Earthmoving Machinery Standardization Work in 12th Five-Year Plan,” which is the top standards development-related honorary title in the earthmoving machine industry and is only given every five years.
These awards, along with a number of previous awards of importance issued to AEM by key Chinese national technical committees in off-road industry sectors, reflect the fact that not only AEM member companies but also Chinese standards development bodies greatly appreciate the active and positive contributions made by AEM to promote ISO standards in China.
(Note: SAC is an acronym for Standardization Administration of China, which is part of the Chinese central government focusing on national standards development.)
