National Technical Committee on Packaging Machinery of Standardization Administration of China fully fight the COVID-19

Check the quality of masks and disinfectants

——National Technical Committee on Packaging Machinery of Standardization Administration of China fully fight the COVID-19

The secretariat of national Technical Committee on Packaging Machinery of Standardization Administration of China (hereinafter referred to as the Packaging Machinery Standardization Committee) is located in Hefei General Machinery Research Institute Co., Ltd. of SINOMACH

From the name point of view, the main task undertaken by the Packaging Machinery Standardization Committee is the formulation and revision of the national standards for packaging machinery, but in fact, its work is directly related to the fight against the COVID-19.

Develop equipment to ensure the quality of materials for COVID-19 prevention and control

Since the outbreak of the COVD-19, masks have become the first line of defense for personal protection. China is the world's largest producer and exporter of masks, with an annual output accounting for about 50% of the world's total. When the market show signs that the supply of masks was in short supply, the nerves of the Standards Committee tightened. Secretary-General Chen Runjie recalled that at first he was worried about sending wrong information to companies, but protecting the health of medical staff, patients, and the public, and preventing the spread of the COVID-19, was a big deal. Therefore, at the end of January, the Packaging Machinery Standardization Committee began to mobilize and urge related enterprises in the industry to make every effort to develop high-speed mask production lines and packaging machines.

Member units Guangzhou Tech-Long Packaging Machinery Co., Ltd., Bihai Machinery Co., Ltd., Changchun Rochiev Intelligent Equipment Manufacturing Co.,Ltd., Hualian Machinery Group Co., Ltd., Bright Dairy & Food Co.,Ltd., Hangzhou Wahaha Group Co., Ltd., Beingmate Co.,Ltd. Shanghai Want Want Food Group Co.,Ltd.,  Coca-Cola Beverages(Shanghai) Co.,Ltd., Jiangsu Tengtong Packing Machinery Co.,Ltd., Fujian Minxuan Technology Co., Ltd.,  Zhejiang Sini Machinery Co.,Ltd. have donated money and materials, Zhu Bin, Shen Hua and other members joined the local anti-epidemic work as volunteers.

Build a solid quality foundation for global COVID-19 prevention and control

As China achieved positive results in the fight against the COVID-19, COVID-19 spread rapidly in many countries around the world. The Chinese government took the initiative to extend a helping hand, and a large number of epidemic prevention and control materials produced by Chinese companies went abroad. Ensuring the quality of these materials is an issue of general concern at home and abroad.

Internationally, packaging machinery is an emerging field of standardization work. It was not until October 2017 that ISO established the Packaging Machinery Standardization Committee, and there has not yet been an international standard issued. As a domestic counterpart, the National Packaging Machinery Standardization Committee has been actively following international standardization trends and actively tracking international standards. Chen Runjie said that all members of the Packaging Machinery Standardization Committee will work with the packaging machinery industry to actively carry out international standardization work and make positive contributions to the fight against the COVID-19.
