Centre to strictly implement quality rules on imported products from China


PTI, Jun 18, 2020, 4:57 PM IST

New Delhi: Appealing people to boycott Chinese goods amid heightened border tensions in Ladakh, Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Thursday, June 18 said the Centre will strictly implement the BIS quality rules on products imported from China.

Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Paswan also directed his ministry officials not to procure any Chinese products for day-to-day office-use purposes.

“I want to appeal to everyone that the way China is behaving, we boycott all Chinese products,” Paswan told reporters here.

Expressing concerns over illegal imports of sub-standard Chinese products like diyas and furniture, the minister said that the government will strictly implement the quality rules framed by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

The BIS, under the aegis of the Consumer Affairs Ministry, has framed over 25,000 quality rules for different products so far, he said. “When our goods reach abroad, they are checked. Our Basmati rice exports get rejected, but when their goods come to India, there is no strict quality control,” he added.

The new BIS law, passed in Parliament in 2016, empowers the Centre and the BIS to promote a culture of quality of products and services through mandatory or voluntary compliance with Indian standards.

The law provides for widening the scope of conformity assessment, enhancing penalties and making offences compoundable besides recalling of the products including with ISI marked, but not conforming to relevant Indian Standards.
