Professor Lyu Aiping, Dean of the School of Chinese Medicine, led the 70-strong China delegation in the capacity of Head and the country’s spokesperson to attend the 9th plenary meeting of International Organisation for Standardisation/Technical Committee 249 on Traditional Chinese Medicine (ISO/TC 249) held in Shanghai from 4 to 7 June.
 
The meeting was attended by 226 representatives from 14 member states including the Chinese mainland, Japan, South Korea, the US, Germany, Australia, Thailand and Saudi Arabia as well as from the World Health Organization and other health related organisations. It was jointly organised by the Standardisation Administration and State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and co-hosted by China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
 
Established in 2009, ISO/TC 249 has promulgated 28 international standards for Chinese medicine and another 46 standards are in the pipeline. At this year’s plenary meeting, a total of 33 new standards have been put forward by the Chinese mainland, South Korea and the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies.
 
Meanwhile, Professor Zhao Zhongzhen, Associate Dean of the School of Chinese Medicine, was invited to deliver a keynote speech in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Li Shizhen, a great scholar of Chinese medicine, at the 6th China-EU Forum on International Cooperation and Development of Traditional Chinese Medicine held earlier at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France. Attending the forum were over 100 top scholars in the field from more than 10 countries and regions, including the Chinese mainland, France, the UK, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Portugal, Belgium, Hong Kong, and Macao.
