Shanghai will implement several local standards related with the China International Import Expo covering food, conferences and volunteer services, the city's quality watchdog announced on Friday ahead of World Standards Day this Sunday.

The food and agricultural product information tracing standard will be implemented across  the Yangtze River Delta region from November, providing technical support on food safety information tracing, according to the Shanghai Quality and Technical Supervision Bureau.

"Establishing a unified and high standard food safety information tracing system is important in safeguarding food safety," Shen Weimin, deputy director of the bureau said.

Another standard on conference operation and service standards in both Chinese and English will be effective from November 1, which establishes the criteria on rating conference service providers, with operation requirements, business revenue, business credibility, and information safety all given consideration.

The standard will further lift the service quality of conference service agencies in the Yangtze River Delta region, Shen said.

Finally, standards on the management of volunteer services for big events are being drafted, which will ensure the smooth and efficient management of volunteer services in the city, the bureau said.
