An international graphene standards and testing centre was officially launched at Zhongguancun Fengtai Science Park, Beijing, China, in October 2015. As the demand for international standards for testing graphene increases, the Centre in Beijing will lay the foundation for the development of graphene industry and high-end applications in China.

A China-UK graphene conference was held as part of the launch activities on October 24, 2015 and graphene experts from China and the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) discussed graphene R&D progress and the development of graphene international standards. The graphene conference was part of a programme of activities between NPL, Beijing Zhongguancun Fengtai Science Park and the associated Beijing Fengtai New Materials Inspection Institute (BFM), to support the development of standards and testing in China.Source: nanowerkstas
