MFA: Hype-up of the So-called Quality Issue of Chinese Products Is Counterproductive to International Cooperation

2020/04/03

In response to media reports from some European countries like the Netherlands and Belgium suggesting that face masks purchased from China fail to meet quality standards, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said on 2 April that, hyping up the so-called quality issue of Chinese products before getting the facts straight does not help international cooperation against the outbreak. She said that China has always placed great emphasis on the quality of export products, and the competent authorities in China have recently rolled out more rigorous regulatory measures. Companies exporting relevant medical supplies are required to submit a statement in written or digital form upon customs declaration, stating that their export products have received the Registration Certificate for Medical Device in China and are in conformity with the quality standards of the destination country or region.

Hua said there are different standards and levels of protection for different categories of masks. Some are for everyday protection and others for professional and medical purposes. At present, masks and other medical supplies are in urgent demand in many countries. "We kindly remind users to carefully check the use and instructions of the products and whether they meet the standards of the purchasers before purchasing and using them, to avoid making mistakes in emergencies and mistakenly using non-medical masks for medical use," she said.
