10. GB: Since the reform and opening up, my country has begun to implement a socialist market economy, and both the domestic market and international trade have developed rapidly. Many export companies in our country, because they do not understand the requirements of the certification systems of various countries, many export products cannot enter the international market, and the prices are far lower than similar products certified in their countries. Therefore, these companies have to spend precious foreign exchange every year to apply for foreign certification and issue inspection reports by foreign inspection agencies. In order to meet the needs of international trade, the country has gradually implemented an internationally accepted certification system. On May 7, 1991, the State Council promulgated the 'Regulations on Product Quality Certification of the People's Republic of China', and the State Bureau of Technical Supervision also issued some regulations to implement the 'Regulations' to ensure that the certification work is carried out in an orderly manner.
