Huzhou in East China's Zhejiang province accommodated 120 inspection agencies as of the end of 2020, up 12.1 percent year-on-year, a recent report shows. 

The inspection agencies primarily cover sectors including agricultural product quality, environmental monitoring, construction engineering, motor vehicles, traffic safety, food safety and special equipment.

Among them, nine have passed the accreditation of the China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS).

Last year, the revenue of these inspection agencies with a total of 2,815 employees expanded 28.6 percent year-on-year to 790 million yuan.

A total of 2.018 million inspection reports were issued, an increase of 12.8 percent year-on-year.

Meanwhile, solid progress has also been made in facilitating the standardization of industries and public services.

Since 2016, Huzhou has led or participated in the formulation and revision of 18 international standards and 304 national standards, and released 121 municipal standards.

The city ranked high in Zhejiang province in both the number and quality of standards.

On April 29, Huzhou's first standardization service platform was launched online, which will fuel the city's further development in this regard.
