CHINA : 600 additional toy factories export licenses revoked
More than 600 additional Chinese toy factories have had their export licenses revoked in recent weeks to ensure product quality, the State Administration for Quality Supervision and Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) announced on Monday.
The government also brought together toy makers to brush up on their knowledge of international product standards and safety awareness.
To my opinion, this is a very good move from the Chinese authorities, but, still, some risk to see the "bad toys" from these factories on foreign markets still remains as the toy factories that get their export licence revoked cannot directly sell & ship toys to foreign clients, but they can still remain subcontractors for trading companies or for other toy factories that still have a valid export licence.
