Both the ChP and Waters ® expect the laboratory to become one of the national technical support centers in the field of Chinese pharmaceutical standards.

"Waters is very excited about our new collaboration with the Chinese Pharmacopeia Commission," said Art Caputo, President of the Waters Division. "I am confident that this new Joint Open Laboratory will make positive contributions to assuring drug quality control in China, it will quickly become an international leader in the field of traditional Chinese pharmaceutical standards."

At the collaboration agreement signing ceremony in Beijing, Secretary General Zhang Wei of the ChP pointed out that "the ChP-Waters Joint Open Laboratory cooperation would become another milestone of the development of the ChP. This cooperation not only meets the needs of ChP’s own development, but also meets the demands of enhanced pharmacopoeia standards and improved public drug safety."
