MIIT Approves the Universal Charging Port

Updated:2022/1/13 14:33

Ding Lei, a member of the National Committee of the CPPCC and the CEO of NetEase, recently put forward the Proposal on Promoting the Reduction of E-waste and Supporting the Cause of Carbon Neutrality via a Universal Standard Charging Port for Smart Electronic Devices. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) responded that the rapid iteration of charging/data ports and charging technologies has resulted in the current USB-C-dominated smart terminal market characterized by the coexistence of multiple connector types and charging technologies. As mentioned in the proposal, most outdated chargers and data cables are now left unused after new devices are bought, resulting in massive wastage. Vigorous efforts on integrating charging ports and technologies will pave the way for lesser e-waste and higher resource utilization efficiency.

MIIT is set to continue the formulation of relevant national standards, speeding up the integration and universalization of charging ports and technologies, boosting the recycling rates of electronics and electrical products, with the view to ultimately advancing the high-quality development of the consumer electronics industry.
