China postpones launch of new IT certificate system by 1 year

A Chinese government panel announced Wednesday it will postpone the introduction of compulsory certification of information technology security products by one year to May 2010. China¡¦s Certification and Accreditation Administration also said it will limit the scope of the compulsory certification to government procurement.

The envisioned certification system was expected to require exporters of telecommunications network firewalls and other software products to China to obtain product certification there. Industries in Japan, Europe and the United States have been opposed to the launch of the new certification system, saying it will allow China to obtain intellectual property through its screening of foreign products.
