Country makes ?quantum leap? in its crackdown on exports of unsafe toys.
Publish date:

China will not face bans on any of its products, the European Union’s consumer chief is expected to say when she meets with industry members on Thursday.

Meglena Kuneva, Consumer Protection Commissioner (pictured), is also expected to urge industry members to “step up their import checks and procedures”, according to reports.

Chinese authorities will submit a report addressing concerns over the safety of toys made in China.

The report will form part of an overall review of EU toy safety standards, following the recall of millions of toys.

An EU official said: "The (Chinese) report shows that the Chinese have made a quantum leap and there is no need for a ban, at least not for the moment. That will be her message."

"But the Chinese will be expected to come up with a similar report every three to four months which we will also check extensively."

The issue of toy safety is due to be discussed further at an EU-China summit on Wednesday, November 28th.
