The long-scheduled Biennial Sino-US Consumer Product Safety Summit, which follows an inaugural 2005 round in Beijing, comes after months of product recalls and discoveries of unsafe imports from China.

"Both sides will be talking about how best to protect consumers from unreasonable risks and the best efforts to implement US safety standards for the products that are being manufactured in China," said a CPSC spokeswoman.

The Sept 10th-11th talks will cover compliance issues with US safety standards in toys, electrical goods, cigarette lighters and fireworks.

Next week's summit will be headed by CPSC acting chairman Nancy Nord and Wei Chuanzhong, vice minister of China's General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).
