Although China lighting product recalls have occurred before, but so dense recalls the various LED products for the first time, on China's exports of lighting products and affecting image. Here to ask: what's wrong with Chinese exports of lighting products?

Event review

In order to clearly understand the reason for lighting products recall, first to review recent recalls:

What products are to be recalled?

Lighting products from EU countries to recall the reasons presented are a common feature: the product is not in conformity with the relevant standards and endanger the personal and property safety.

Author query the State of the defective consumer product recall management, lighting products at the same time meet the three requirements, can be identified as a defective product, you can start the recall. These three requirements, including: threatening personal and property security; in the same batch, model or type of product in general; design, manufacturing or danger warning labels such as reasons.

Needs to be emphasized is that must be universal by recall of dangerous products, such as exists in the same batch, model or type of product, rather than just individual products.

Why is wrong?

First is the price war. This is common problem existing in China's manufacturing industry, with the human cost of the upgrade, intensify market competition, wind all the way along the ride, domestic lighting began seizing foreign markets, also from domestic price war burned abroad. However, the end result of the price, is the constant sacrifice product quality and profit, which the product quality risks open.

Second is uneven, and lax supervision. Economies in the European Union, high technology, develop high technical standards and regulations strictly, because standards in different countries different, definition of product quality difference. Domestic standard lower than their standard, some lighting manufacturers, barely reaching, when lax regulation in the market, sales of substandard products will appear, after exported obviously does not meet the requirements.

Thirdly, China's export of quality lighting products are qualified. Because at a specific time, specific locations, some testing to detect data inaccurate, resulting in nonconformities concerned to judge China's, which also have appeared in previous cases.

Therefore, although China has become a manufacturing nation in the world, but "big but not strong", manufacturing quality is relatively weak. For lighting companies, to avoid product recalls, need enhancing "internal strength", improve product quality management, strictly enforce product standards. In addition, to build brands, increase international visibility, increase the added value of products.
