Sub­stan­dard prod­ucts hit­ting the in­ter­net

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

More than 30 per­cent of goods sold over the in­ter­net in China were found to be sub­stan­dard last year, three times the pro­por­tion of prod­ucts sold off­line, ac­cord­ing to the head of the coun­try’s qual­ity watch­dog.

The Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Qual­ity Su­per­vi­sion, In­spec­tion and Quar­an­tine ex­am­ined nearly 7,000 sam­ple groups of goods sold on­line. More than 2,100 failed qual­ity stan­dards and were or­dered to be re­moved from sale, Zhi Shup­ing said dur­ing a news con­fer­ence on the side­lines of the an­nual leg­isla­tive ses­sion.

In brick-and-mor­tar stores, more than 90 per­cent of goods have passed in­spec­tion for the past three years, he said. (Photo 3)
