In recent years, the wire and cable industry is an important basic industry of China's national economy, and the quality of its products is directly related to economic and social development and the vital interests of the people.

With the rapid growth of China's wire and cable industry, some problems have become increasingly severe, such as surplus total, insufficient effective supply, prominent structural contradictions, low input and output, and weak technological innovation. In addition, the current overall quality of wire and cable products in my country is not high, and the qualified rate of product quality supervision and spot checks has been hovering at a low level for a long time. Export product recalls have occurred repeatedly, and their quality problems have brought great risks to safety, environmental protection and health. These problems have seriously hindered the healthy development of the wire and cable industry. At the same time, as countries around the world continue to pay more attention to the environment, the production and manufacture of environmentally friendly products has become a global development trend. In this regard, Chinese manufacturers need to actively understand and grasp the latest developments in global green environmental protection regulations. Only by controlling the latest environmental protection control technology and ensuring the "green" energy-saving and environmental protection of products can we seize the opportunity in the fiercely competitive international market.

The requirements of EU REACH regulations are becoming more and more stringent. With the official release of the 8th batch of SVHC candidate substances list, the number of SVHC candidate substances has officially increased to 138 items. Therefore, the research and development and large-scale adoption of eco-friendly wire and cable have become an international trend, and the development of green and environment-friendly cables that conform to the trend of social development is an important way to enhance the market competitiveness of cable companies.
