The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) plans to set up a Beijing office after a number of large recalls since 2007, AP reported. It will be the first time that the CPSC has set up an overseas office. The office will be located in the US embassy in Beijing and work with Chinese manufacturers and regulators to make sure products are up to US standards. The office is prepared to open in October, but it still needs to receive approval from Chinese authorities. US officials said they do not think the office will harm Sino-US relations. The quality of China’s exports came under international scrutiny in March 2007 after dog and cat deaths in North America were linked to a pet food ingredient made in China. Quality problems were later found in products ranging from toothpaste to fish to drywall.
