The China National Tourism Administration has signed a cooperation agreement with International SOS to jointly draw up national standards for travel emergency assistance services.

The standards will make clear specifications on personnel, facilities and services of tourism reception bodies and professional relief agencies, and will help to create an emergency assistance system in China and to improve the security level of the tourism industry.

International SOS is the world's leading international healthcare, medical assistance, and security services company, and has extensive experience in traveler assistance. It will organize an expert group to draw up the guidelines based on: research on the current situation in China, other countries' experience, and comments from other assistance agencies and experts.

After the draft standards have been completed, they will be submitted to China's Standardization Administration for approval.
