Qual­ity Trace­abil­ity Sys­tem

Beijing Review - - This Week -

China will com­plete its prod­uct qual­ity trace­abil­ity sys­tem by 2020.

A re­cent guide­line, jointly is­sued by the Min­istry of Com­merce and nine other cen­tral de­part­ments, said the trace­abil­ity sys­tem would tar­get key prod­ucts in­clud­ing farm pro­duce, food, medicine, dan­ger­ous ma­te­ri­als and rare earths.

By 2020, a stan­dard and co­or­di­nated prod­uct qual­ity trace­abil­ity sys­tem will be im­ple­mented and so­cial aware­ness of qual­ity trace­abil­ity will be in­creased, ac­cord­ing to the guide­line.

The trace­abil­ity sys­tem will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing sources, des­ti­na­tions and ac­count­able persons to re­in­force prod­uct qual­ity and safety.

The prod­uct qual­ity trace­abil­ity sys­tem will raise qual­ity man­age­ment, en­cour­age in­no­va­tive qual­ity su­per­vi­sion and en­sure the safety of con­sumer goods, the guide­line said.

In re­cent years, China has pushed the use of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing the In­ter­net of Things and cloud com­put­ing, to es­tab­lish trace­abil­ity sys­tems for key prod­ucts. sur­vey by a Chi­nese In­ter­net se­cu­rity plat­form.

About 56 per­cent of Chi­nese In­ter­net users said the na­tion’s In­ter­net en­vi­ron­ment was “very” or “pretty” se­cure, while about 32.8 per­cent of users said In­ter­net se­cu­rity was “gen­er­ally good,” ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey by China’s 360 Se­cu­rity Cen­ter.

Some 40 per­cent of In­ter­net users said they would “pay close at­ten­tion” to ma­jor cy­ber at­tacks such as the re­cent Wan­naCry ran­somware, while more than 26 per­cent of the re­spon­dents thought such at­tacks would not af­fect their lives.

About 19 per­cent of In­ter­net users had no knowl­edge of re­cent cy­ber at­tacks and are more vul­ner­a­ble to cy­ber at­tacks, ac­cord­ing to the 360 Se­cu­rity Cen­ter.

To safe­guard cy­ber­se­cu­rity, the plat­form said nearly 90 per­cent of In­ter­net users have in­stalled an­tivirus soft­ware on their cell­phones and com­put­ers.

China’s on­line pop­u­la­tion reached 751 mil­lion this June, up 2.7 per­cent from the end of 2016, ac­cord­ing to the China In­ter­net Net­work In­for­ma­tion Cen­ter. A to­tal of 724 mil­lion Chi­nese now use mo­bile phones to go on­line, ac­count­ing for 96.3 per­cent of the on­line pop­u­la­tion. bers of ac­ci­dents and fa­tal­i­ties both drop­ping, in the first nine months of this year, the na­tion’s work safety watch­dog said on Oc­to­ber 23.

The num­ber of ac­ci­dents fell 26.3 per­cent year on year to around 36,000 dur­ing the Jan­uarySeptem­ber pe­riod, while re­lated fa­tal­i­ties went down 19 per­cent to 26,000, ac­cord­ing to the State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Work Safety (SAWS).
