China to complete product quality traceability system by 2020

China will complete its product quality traceability system by 2020.

A recent guideline, jointly issued by the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) and nine other central departments, said the traceability system would target key products, including farm produce, food, medicine, special equipment, dangerous materials and rare earth.

By 2020, a standard and coordinated product quality traceability system will be implemented and social awareness on quality traceability will be increased, according to the guideline.

The traceability system will provide information regarding sources, destinations and accountable persons to reinforce product quality and safety.
