Chinese quality watchdog cracked down on 6.13 billion yuan counterfeits in 2012


Chinese administrations for quality supervision, inspection and quarantine at all levels have dispatched enforcement officials for 2.46 million person-times to investigate 161 thousand illegal cases involving a total of 6.13 billion yuan last year, according to information released by the General Administration on December 28, 2012.

The administrations conducted enforcement campaigns in major sectors including food, agricultural materials, building materials, car accessories, and cosmetics. They also organized nine provinces to participate in a unified fight against fake fertilizers and three provinces in tackling substandard pesticides.

As many as 9,243 illicit lairs producing shoddy commodities were destroyed and 2,084 major and serious cases were handled with 1,687 being transferred to public security organs.

Closer inspections were done in handling import cargos. In November 2012 alone, the administrations found out 345 batches of substandard food in 18 categories imported from 32 countries/regions, and eight batches of cosmetic products from four countries/regions, which were all ordered to ship back or destroyed later.
