The wire and cable industry is an industrial basic industry and occupies an extremely important position in my country's national economy. With the adjustment of my country's energy structure, the wire and cable industry will usher in the spring of development. On the one hand, the next few years will be a critical period for the development of China's smart grid industry. It is predicted that China will become the world's largest smart grid market by 2020. To achieve this goal, various provincial and municipal governments are investing in the construction of power distribution and electricity facilities The speed will increase rapidly, and under its impetus, the cable industry will develop vigorously. On the other hand, driven by the National "13th Five-Year Plan for Energy Development", the electric vehicle industry will show explosive growth, greatly stimulating the rapid development of the transmission and distribution industries. Coupled with the government further accelerating the national railway, light rail, subway, and other collective transportation system projects, the overall demand of the Chinese cable industry will continue to be optimistic in the future.

China is the best environment for the development of electric vehicles in the world. Enterprises must create products that meet international standards before going out. Obtaining international certification is the most direct proof of products in the Chinese electric vehicle market.

For more than 140 years, TUV Rheinland is known worldwide for providing reliable inspection, testing, and certification services. In the field of wire and cable, TUV Rheinland has more than 20 years of rich experience, familiar with the latest international certification standards, for all kinds of traditional cables and special cable products. In 2011, TUV Rheinland was the first to promulgate electric vehicle charging cable standards, which was recognized and favored by the industry.

At present, the applicable standards for charging cables are mainly IEC62893-1/-2/-3: 2017 drafted by the International Electrotechnical Commission, and the corresponding regional standards in different countries such as China, the European Union, the United States, Canada, and Japan. Enterprises should be based on their target markets Carry out relevant testing and certification in a targeted manner. The testing and certification requirements of the European Union's electric vehicle charging cable EN 50620:2017. The standard is mainly applicable to halogen-free cables that provide power and communication for electric vehicles. There are a series of strict requirements in terms of insulation materials, rated voltage, printing, cable structure, and inspection and testing of finished cables.
