Vietnamese businesses urged to study US safety norms
Nancy Nord, acting chairwoman of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has told Vietnamese businesses to thoroughly study new US consumer product safety requirements before receiving orders to export goods to the market, reported Vietnam’s state news agency VNA.

At a seminar on the issue held in Hanoi on Sept. 12, Nord said that her country's President George Bush on August 14 signed an amendment to consumer product safety acts.

Businesses exporting their products to the US must get CPSC certification to ensure their product quality. Otherwise, they will be fined and their products will be destroyed.

Laurie Hopkins from CPSC, who is in charge of the Vietnamese market, said that Vietnamese businesses should strictly abide by product safety regulations during the manufacturing process.

According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Vietnam earned almost $5.7 billion from exports to the US in the first half of the year, a 20.7 percent year-on-year rise. Its major export items to the US include textiles and apparels, furniture, footwear, farm and seafood products, electrical equipment and machineries.
