Consumer Rights Day (3.15) Program Exposed Shocking Malpractices!

Popularity 1Viewed 1697 times 2019-3-17 13:27 |System category:News| Consumer

Millions, if not billions, of Chinese were glued to their TV sets on 15 March to watch the consumer rights program on CCTV.  And what a revelation; malpractices in business which normally consumers would not be exposed to!  For instance,  recycling hospital used and discarded plastic surgical syringes bottles, tubes, etc;  dirty recycled materials used to manufacture adult and chidren diapers in abhorrent conditions;  businesses providing fake parmacist credentials ro pharmacies to conform with registration requirements, when in fact there were never any qualified pharmacists in those pharmacies involved!  And the list of malpractices go on, to the dismay of viewers and consumers!!  The supervisory regulatory authorities immediately responded with raids on the premises of the wayward businesses.  But that obviously came too late, the damage had already been done;  consumers are the only losers!  That the regulatory authorities only swung into action after the program exposed massive wrongdoings, is a poor reflection on their work.  They are expected to stop malpractices from happening, not to take action only when businesses under their watch are caugt red-handed and exposed by the media!!

The penalty is too soft, this is the biggest problem, if the violator will be flogged as in Singapore, then nobody would try to have a test

You are sooo right! Penaltiy is too light, worthwhile for businesses to take  risks, and most of the time it pays off as for years they go about with their malpractices without detection, until 3.15 day!!
