The new standards were made together with 20 experts from a dozen of countries including France, Germany, Japan, Spain and Italy following four years of research, the second international high-speed railway standards after the "Design of High-Speed Railway - Signaling and Communication", which was launched in 2020.

The standard introduced China's top design concept based on global experience of building high-speed railway systems, and focused on the solutions of general design for high-speed railway routes, bridges, tunnels, stations and platforms.

The UIC was founded in 1922 in France, an NGO with 70 members and 208 institutes. The NRA has been working on cooperation with UIC and has hosted 31 standard making processes, said NRA.
