The Standards Institution of Israel and its Chinese counterpart on Monday signed an agreement to establish cooperation in several areas, the official Israeli body for the preparation and publication of standards announced.

Under the agreement, the SII will exchange information and share resources with the Standardization Administration of China. In addition, the two will support each other’s activities at the global bodies of which they are both members: the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission.

Cooperation between the two countries on standardization is increasingly important as bilateral trade continues to expand, the SII said in a press release announcing the deal. Israeli hi-tech, communications and medical- equipment companies attempting to sell their wares in China will be among the biggest beneficiaries from the deal, it said.

The deal follows the visit of former Industry, Trade and Labor minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer to China last September, during which he and his Chinese counterpart agreed to expand cooperation between the two standardization bodies.

Aside from representing Israel at the ISO and the IEC, the SII has existing cooperation agreements with European Union and American bodies.
