State Administration for Industry & Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (SAIC) published the results for special random inspection of products for internet sale on 8 October 2016. Upon testing, it shows 172 batches (497 batches in total) products are not compliant with a failure rate of 34.6%.
SAIC randomly inspected products intended for sale on major e-commerce platforms in China such as Taobao。com, Tmall, Yixun。com, JD。com, suning。com, yhd。com, gome。com。cn, vip。com, dangdang。com and Amazon。cn。 The samples inspected including electric fans, induction cookers, electric kettles, mobile phones, power adaptors, plugs-and-sockets, convertors, car recorders, toys, paper products for household use, adults’ garment, underwear, sports shoes, luggage and bags, sanitary pads, child car seats and other common consumer products, totalling 503 batches。
4 of 503 batches are “three-no” products and 2 batches are counterfeit. 172 batches of products are non-compliant due to quality issues and 7% results from non-compliance of labelling and instructions.
SAIC requires competent departments of industry & commerce administration and market supervision should treat the non-compliant products in the inspection by law.
