See China’s Approvals of Game Machines from Hangzhou City
Date:12/6/2012 10:24:10 PM


With the mechanism of game and amusement industry gradually improved, testing and certification of game and amusement machines are becoming more and more popular to achieve standardization management of the industry. So how is it going in all regions? What difficulties they encounter? Here, taking Hangzhou as the example, we would like to talk about the testing and certification of game and amusement machines.

Hangzhou Municipal Bureau of Culture Press Publication always pays attention to the prosperity and development as well as long-term efficiency management of entertainment market. Investigation shows that it put forward the new idea of prosperity and development working along with establishment of long-term efficiency management mechanisms in the beginning of the year, which means it will dedicate to the work of recommending purchase & supply and unified testing across the city. 

Hangzhou Municipal Bureau of Culture Press Publication held a conference on the arrangements of law enforcement examination of entertainment venues and approval of game and amusement equipments in March and May. Since June, municipal bureau and district culture departments worked as a group on the approval, testing, certification, labeling and registering of the game and amusement equipment. And in August the whole city had nearly achieved what was exactly expected. Hangzhou World Game Longcheng Amusement Equipment Trading Center, as the technical adviser of the group, also participated in the whole course of approval, testing, certification, labeling and registering, as well as fire production.

Undoubtedly, things don’t go smoothly without any difficulties. Firstly, even though cultural competent departments have consistent ideas on the importance and necessity of the work, differences in specific implementation standards of individual districts still exist. Secondly, cultural competent departments and the public security department reached an agreement, but disagreements on testing and certification of game machines exist between cultural department of individual districts and public security department. After 2 months’ hard work and especially with the guidance of technical workers of Hangzhou World Game Longcheng Amusement Equipment Trading Center, disagreements between departments on the specific implementation were almost resolved.

To guarantee the efficient implementation of the new measures, municipal bureau requires related departments jointly work on the approval, testing and labeling work. Cultural enforcement authorities should focus on post supervision to firmly avoid the illegal behavior that individual operators try to manage illegal machines by changing labels. And the related departments shouldn’t relax their supervision and examination, or the previous labeling work will completely ruin.

As the testing, certification and labeling work carried on, approvals of game and amusement venues are also in full swing, which require related cultural departments to supervise game and amusement equipments purchasing while they work on the approval of new entertainment venues. Besides the testing and certification of game and amusement equipment, innovation management also includes regulating the standard of equipment purchasing and supplying. Both of them all start from the source to establish a long-effected mechanism of Hangzhou game and amusement venues.

What Hangzhou Municipal Bureau of Culture Press Publication considers as an important part of the examination and approval of new game and amusement venues is actively and positively recommending purchase & supply platform certificated by the Ministry of Culture----- Hangzhou World Game Longcheng Amusement Equipment Trading Center to those declarers. They should also encouraged to purchase machines from trade centers in which machines are produced by fames domestic manufacturers to make sure that what they purchase confirms to admittance catalogue made by the Ministry of Culture and finally to guarantee the normalization and legality of purchased game and amusement machines. Meanwhile, testing, certification and labeling should be linked to purchase to simplify work procedure and lower cost, trying to achieve a one-step solution.

Game machine is a kind of special cultural products and Ministry of Culture has special requirements for its contents and functions. Hence, manufacture, sales and use of game machines are all strictly under supervision by cultural management departments. It is highly valued and considered as an important part of innovative management by the municipal bureau, which will take an important role in preventing transaction, circulation and use of illegal machines, urging enterprises’ and operators’ lawful management and fair competition. Some areas of Zhejiang province take measures to set up new venue operators which could be declared only with purchase invoice issued by Hangzhou World Game Longcheng Amusement Equipment Trading Center. Municipal bureau   also considers it as s a good idea to learn from and encourage related departments to carry on.

As mentioned above, specific work of testing, approving and purchase & supply recommendation of game and amusement machines hasn’t been carried out for a long time and it was once frustrated and even questioned during implementation.  However, it is no doubt that strict testing and standardized approval of game machines will promote the healthier and sustainable development of the commercial animation and game industry. Besides, establishing regional trading centers for game and amusement equipment is an inevitable industrial development trend to standardize products trading and reduce transaction of illegal machines.
