The MIIT published the Working Points for Standardisation of Intelligent Connected Vehicles (ICV) and New Energy Vehicles (NEV) ("Working Points") on 27 March 2018.

For both ICVs and NEVs, the Working Points require various major standards to be established soon. Both Working Points also mention developing and strengthening their respective subcommittees: the Subcommittee 34 on Intelligent Connected Vehicles and Subcommittee 27 on Electric Vehicles. Key manufacturers should engage in the standardisation process and play a major role in its formation.

In addition, these Working Points provide that China should actively engage in the establishment of international standards and communicate with other international parties to promote the development of them.
