Organizational Charts Available for Chinese Government Ministries

Helps standards and conformance bodies communicate with the right people.

Published: Wednesday, September 2, 2009 - 14:10

(ANSI: New York) -- The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) announced the availability of a new resource for its members that will facilitate enhanced U.S. engagement on standards and conformance in China. The resource was developed jointly with the US-China Business Council (USCBC), the leading organization of U.S. companies engaged in business with the Peoples Republic of China.

ANSI and USCBC will be offering a series of organizational charts for Chinese government agencies, including the roles and responsibilities for individual departments within the agency and English and Mandarin Chinese names of the top offices and officials. Organizational charts for the Standardization Administration of China (SAC) and the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) are now available to full members of ANSI and the USCBC, and the two organizations plan to add other Chinese government agencies in the future:

Organization chart for General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) (ANSI full members only)

Organization chart for Standardization Administration of China (SAC) (ANSI full members only)


According to Elise Owen, ANSI’s senior representative for China affairs, the organizational charts hold a great deal of value for U.S. stakeholders. “When U.S. organizations can clearly understand the organizational structure of key standards and conformance bodies in China, they can engage more easily and effectively to advance cooperation and to encourage consideration of U.S. perspectives,” explains Owen.

The collaboration between ANSI and the USCBC leverages the expertise and experience of both organizations, and provides valuable resources for U.S. companies and organizations doing business in China.

For more information about this initiative or on other activities under ANSI’s China Program, contact Elise Owen, ANSI’s representative for China and India affairs, at eowen@ansi.org or call (202) 331-3624.
