New Opportunities for Testing and Certification in the Age of Technology

(18 March 2019)

The Council and the Hong Kong Accreditation Service will co-organise the Seminar on New Opportunities for Testing and Certification in the Age of Technology on 18 March 2019 (Monday). (Programme)

The rapid development of technology, together with Hong Kong's transformation into a smart city, is creating new opportunities for the testing and certification (T&C) sector. On the one hand, T&C bodies could adopt new technologies such as robotics, automation, artificial intelligence, data analytics, blockchain, etc. to enhance operation efficiency and improve customer service. On the other, the emergence of smart products and Internet of Things would generate new demands for third party quality and safety assurance.

This seminar covers various topics including the latest developments of Hong Kong as a Smart City, new technologies which could be adopted by the T&C sector, and updates on measurement standards. The seminar will also share the potential needs for T&C services to cater for new types of smart products, and introduce some funding schemes that can support the adoption of technology. The T&C sector could obtain relevant information for grasping the new opportunities ahead.
