The title of the presentation is "What is wrong with 'Made in China'" ?"
"First was pet food, then toothpaste, tires, and now toys. A large variety of unsafe or defective products imported from China to the U.S. reached a historical peak when Mattel recalled 21 millions of Chinese-made lead-painted toys. According to statistics, U.S. businessmen have invested billions of dollars in China, so there have been numerous contracts signed between U.S. corporations and Chinese contractors for the Chinese to produce goods for export to the U.S. (San Francisco Chronicle News, 2007). For the reason of competitive labor costs, job outsourcing to China or other developing countries is the best option for international businesses. But the safety issues have scared the U.S. consumers and suppliers. These recalled products were partly caused by poor design
in the OEM phase, and mostly caused by suppliers. This paper investigates: (1) what are the supplier quality assurance requirements and practices on the U.S. customer side and on the Chinese supplier end respectively? (2) What is the importersí roles? (3) What is the role of CPSC (US Consumer Product Safety Commission)? This paper also attempts to recommend possible remedies to these critical quality and safety issues."
