The IQTC is a government organisation which depends on the General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) of the Chinese government. This technology center is responsible in particular for ensuring the compliance of imported products and especially wines.
Dr. Ruf, who had already welcomed representatives from this organisation to the OIV in September 2012, presented the OIV's missions and activities in the field of oenological practices and methods of analysis to the IQTC delegation led by its Director, Dr. Zheng Jianguo.
The discussions were particularly focused on the impact of the OIV standards on global vitiviniculture, especially with regards methods of analysis. The IQTC delegation highlighted its interest in implementing analyses on the quality and authentication of wines.
The IQTC representatives also emphasised their interest in the OIV's work and offered to provide a Chinese translation of the OIV methods of analysis. Finally, both parties agreed to continue with the exchange of information between the two organisations.
