  • [01] Markos Kyprianou signs product safety memorandum with China

    The European Health and Consumer Protection Commissioner Markos Kyprianou signed in Beijing on 16 January a memorandum of understanding to promote cooperation with the Chinese authorities aiming to reduce the numbers of dangerous and defective consumer products exported to Europe. The memorandum, also signed by Minister Li Changjiang of the Chinese governmental agency for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), aims to establish better communication and collaboration between the responsible authorities on general product safety, food safety, and Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) issues, with a view to boosting the overall protection of both EU and Chinese citizens. Welcoming the signature of the memorandum, Commissioner Kyprianou said: "Ensuring consumer safety is a top priority for the Commission, and the memorandum we have signed with the Chinese authorities is a significant step forward in this regard. Cooperation with China on product safety has already begun, and a priority will be to exchange information on defective products which have been reported through the European Union's rapid alert system. Ensuring the appropriate follow-up with producers and training on EU safety requirements are among the other issues which I look forward to discussing when I visit a major toy factory in the state of Guangzhou on Thursday."
