The Informatisation and Software Services Division (Division) of the MIIT announced that they are preparing to establish a block chain and distributed ledger technologies standardisation technical committee on the 12 March 2018.

Currently, many international organisations have started to work on the standardisation of block chains. The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has established a technical committee TC 307 to focus on the standardisation of block chain technologies and distributed ledger technologies.

In order to promote the formation of a complete block chain standard system, the Division has instructed the China Electronics Standardisation Institute to submit a proposal on the establishment of a block chain technical committee. The formal committee is expected to be established soon.
