Chinese firm sued by US over ‘fake’ masks not certified: Official

first_imgTopics : The ministry added that China has taken a series of measures to strengthen the quality control of exported epidemic-prevention materials, and to regulate exports. “China is willing to strengthen cooperation with governments including that of the United States, work together, overcome the epidemic, and build a common community of health for mankind,” it said. A government official told reporters in April that China had confiscated over 89 million poor quality face masks, after a slew of complaints about faulty protective gear exported worldwide. A Chinese company sued for selling nearly half a million fake and substandard N95 respirators to US buyers in April is not a certified maker of medical masks, Chinese authorities said on Monday.Guangdong-based King Year Packaging and Printing is not on a list of enterprises approved or registered as meeting foreign standards, China’s Commerce Ministry told AFP.The company had shipped three batches of purported N95 masks — needed to protect medical and other personnel in the coronavirus pandemic — to US buyers, according to a complaint filed in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York.center_img The firm allegedly falsely claimed the 495,200 masks it shipped had met the N95 standard and that they were certified by the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.The mask importer paid over $1 million for them, said the complaint.”According to our preliminary understanding, the Chinese company involved in this case is a manufacturer of non-medical masks and is not on the list of companies certified or registered as meeting foreign standards,” said the commerce ministry.It was referring to a list issued by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Medicines and Health Products.last_img read more

Chambers completed participation in the 104th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute held in Aurora, Colo., September 8-14, 2013.  The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs.  This no-cost program is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA).  Sheriff Chambers is the first sheriff of Sumner County to graduate from the NSI.Sheriff Chambers joined 26 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing America’s sheriffs today.  In light of those challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations, and organization effectiveness and efficiency.Fred G. Wilson, NSA Director of Operations, said, “Sheriff Chambers is a leader with vision for the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office.  It is an honor to have Sheriff Chambers join the more than 2,500 graduates of the NSI since 1973.”The NIC is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons.  It is the primary federal source of technical assistance, training, and information services for state and local corrections.  NIC provides a wide variety of services to the nation’s jails, most of which are the responsibility of sheriffs.The NSA is a non-profit professional association located in Alexandria, Va.  NSA represents the nearly 3,100 elected sheriffs across the nation and has more than 18,000 members, including law enforcement professionals, state and federal government employees, concerned citizens, students, and others.  Since 1940, NSA has served as an information clearinghouse for law enforcement professionals.  NSA also provides management training for sheriffs and their personnel in court security, crime victim services, domestic violence, homeland security initiatives, jail operations, and traffic safety.  Additionally, NSA administers the highly successful Neighborhood Watch and Triad programs.last_img read more
