At the 9th International Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Technology Congress (CICV2022) held on August 1, Li Changqing, a second-level inspector from the Quality Development Bureau of the China State Administration for Regulation of market (SAMR), said that the authority is in the process of setting up a new energy vehicle accident notification system and has set up an accident investigation cooperation network.
In addition, the government has issued regulatory policy guidance documents for remote vehicle upgrade and OTA. The authority will mainly focus on four aspects, promoting the vigorous development of the intelligent and connected vehicle automotive industry, and actively exploring the supervision of vehicle security sandboxes.
First, regulatory authorities will correct and improve laws and regulations regarding recall monitoring mechanism, expand the scope of recalled products from automotive products to automotive products, gradually introduce new measures such as self-assessment of safety and the reporting of major accidents. It will also offer a new intelligent supervision scheme in combination with the digital characteristics of intelligent and connected vehicles.
Second, it will actively explore the sandbox supervision of vehicle manufacturers. The “sandbox supervision” is to first delineate a perimeter, taking inclusive and careful supervision measures for the “box” companies, while the supervision department will supervise the whole process of operations to ensure the security of the tests and carry out the final evaluations.

Third, the authorities aim to improve the quality of infrastructure and technological innovation. The organization plans to establish a closed-loop mechanism for product recall and standardization of product safety requirements, jointly promote the development of smart and connected vehicle recall and safety standards with relevant standardization committees, gradually establish a standard system based on big data of safety accidents and recalls, and strengthen the construction of quality infrastructure with industry authorities such as the automobile safety big data platform and the base autonomous driving safety assessment, to provide technological support for the post-market supervision of smart and connected vehicles.
Finally, it will focus on forming a safe development model of co-construction. The government aims to continuously innovate and optimize the supervision mode suitable for the development of intelligent and connected vehicles, and enterprises should strictly assume their responsibility, enhance safety awareness and actively fulfill their safety obligations on the basis of the ‘technological innovation. Scientific research institutions should fully play the role of think tanks and concentrate superior research resources to conduct systematic and in-depth research on autonomous driving and IoV (Internet of Vehicles) security. Consumers should improve their ability to raise awareness and prevent new safety hazards, and media institutions should actively promote the safe, healthy and vigorous development of China’s smart and connected vehicle industry.
