Tsinghua Tongheng’s proposals on smart city international standards approved


Three smart city international standards proposed by Tsinghua Holdings’ subsidiary Tshinghua Tongheng Urban Planning & Design Institute were approved in September after years of persistent effort. The standards are expected to be implemented by December 2023.

One of the newly-approved standards, IEC SRD 63320, will collect smart planning cases from around the world, analyzing the data by classification, function and stakeholder demand to explore the requirements of future smart city standards and to propose relevant plans.

Another standard to be proposed, IEC SRD 63233-2, is based on the methods of IEC SRD 63233-1 which was welcomed by international experts. It is believed to be able to systematically sort through global cases and is important in terms of the establishment of a global smart city standard library.

Preventing public health emergencies is an important part of urban social security. As the COVID-19 epidemic spreads globally, standards are particularly important for cities responding to such emergencies, such as how to choose masks, how to disinfect public places, and how to trace suspicious cases.

The IEC SRD 63233-4 standard provides guidelines for identifying and categorizing epidemic prevention standards, and also recommends a database to help use standardized procedures and products to combat global infections and protect residents’ health and safety.

Tsinghua Tongheng has been committed to developing smart city international standards since 2017, and has provided important support for enhancing China’s influence in smart city international standards globally.

By participating in the research and compilation of international standards such as IEC, ISO, ISO/IEC JCT1 WG11 and ITU-T, and through communication with foreign experts, it has helped complete 14 standards.
