China Steps Up Safety Supervision of Children’s Goods

The General Office of the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) has recently announced a series of measures – contained in The Circular on Further Strengthening the Quality and Safety Supervision of Children’s Goods – intended to improve the safety of children’s goods. The key elements of this revised regime include the more stringent enforcement of manufacturers’ responsibilities, checks to ensure that no banned raw materials have been used during the production process and onsite pre-release inspections at production facilities in order to ensure that mandatory national standards have been complied with.

In conjunction with other departments, the SAMR will also promote the integration of mandatory national standards for children’s goods safety and accelerate the formulation of more stringent mandatory national standards. It will also seek compliance with the relevant international standards and look to establish a recommended standards system in conjunction with the prevailing mandatory standards.
