  •  Huimin Wang    


Following ISO9000 and ISO14000, SA8000 standard is now attracting international attention and it exerts influence on the export trade of China, particularly on the export trade of labor-intensive products. Because Chinese enterprises lack understanding of this standard and the importance attached to this standard in the government’s macro-administration is not sufficient, at this stage, only a small number of Chinese enterprises have passed the certification of SA8000. But in order to gain a trade environment of fair competition and at the same time to raise the international competitiveness of Chinese enterprises, the government of China and Chinese enterprises shall treat this standard with active attitude and consider it to be the impetus to help enterprises to regulate their management, to improve their management levels and to become favorable enterprises.
