Canada, China sign safety understanding

BEIJING -- Canada and China have signed a memorandum of understanding to enhance co-operation in consumer product safety.

Health Canada says in a news release the agreement will establish technical working groups that will share information on regulatory requirements and laboratory testing procedures for consumer products of common concern, such as toys and children's jewellery.

It will also set up training workshops for Chinese manufacturers to ensure their full understanding and compliance with Canadian safety requirements and establish information-sharing mechanisms and approaches between the two governments.

One of these would be an urgent consultation mechanism which would be used when critical product safety issues arise. China's image as the workshop of the world has been tarnished by a spate of recent product quality scandals.

Like this shouldn't have been years ago? I understand why we need to trade with China, we need them to buy our products, too, but this whole thing with China's products has been absolutely ridiculous. Don't they have any common sense over there?

Yes, but look at how it has tainted their name and their exports? The government at the very least should have been regulating the products, like every other country. :no:

Canada and China are co-operating? This is an NWO conspiracy, surely.

This road goes both ways...

China blocks U.S. products, saying they are dangerous

Certain health supplements and raisins imported from the United States failed to meet Chinese safety standards and have been returned or destroyed, the country's food safety agency said Friday, turning the tables on the U.S. amid growing worries over dangerous Chinese products.

Inspectors in the ports of Ningbo and Shenzhen found bacteria and sulfur dioxide in products shipped by three American companies, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

"The products failed to meet the sanitary standards of China," the agency said in a brief notice posted on its website. No details were given on when or how the inspections were conducted.

Telephones at the administration's office were not answered on Friday.

Do you believe that all products made in the US and Canada are "safe"? They contain no unsafe levels of chemicals or bacteria?

I see this for what it is... hypocritical accusations made against a country that is pwning the US by selling them cheap crap that their consumers demand and well the US cant do anything about it other than complain and create consumer fear.
