Meglena Kuneva, the European commissioner for consumer protection, said China has pledged to provide detailed reports to respond to European complaints about potentially dangerous exported products starting in October, the Financial Times reported. Under a 2006 agreement between China and the EU, Beijing is required to provide detailed quarterly reports on actions to investigate producers of non-food exports appearing in the Rapex (the EU's Rapid Alert System) alerts. Kuneva, visiting Beijing yesterday, said only two of the three reports due so far had been provided and that they had not been "executed properly". China accounts for half of the Rapex alerts issued by EU member states, though the amount has dropped in recent years.
