NIST Seeks Input on China Participation in International Standards Development

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the U.S. Department of Commerce is seeking information on the policies and influence of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) on the development of international standards applicable to new and emerging technologies.

According to a Request for Information (RFI) published in the Federal Register in early November, NIST is seeking information consistent with the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which directs the Institute to support a study that would make recommendations regarding “the effect of the policies of the People’s Republic of China and coordination among industrial entities with the People’s Republic of China on international bodies engaged in developing and setting international standards for emerging technologies.”

NIST says that information collected through the RFI will serve as important input in a study being conducted by Makwa Global LLC on recommendations on how the U.S. might mitigate undue influence of the PRC, while also bolstering U.S. public and private sector participation in international standards-setting activities.
