PTB News 1.2016

Since 1 October 2015, PTB has been host to an office of the Chinese National Supervision and Inspection Center for Explosion Protection and Safety of Instrumentation (NEPSI), based in Shanghai.

The partnership between PTB and NEPSI has existed since 1997; in July of 2015, the cooperation agreement between the two institutions was renewed. This office makes it easier for German industry, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, to access the Chinese market for explosion-proof devices. The wide range of tasks performed by this office include consultation and certification in the field of explosion protection, as well as type examinations of measurement instruments.
