They will also have their licenses or certificates of China Compulsory Certification (CCC) revoked. It is also suggested that relevant departments disqualify such enterprises from selling home appliances in the countryside.

The circular requires quality supervision departments in all regions to monitor enterprises that won bids in their providing of quality post-sale service for their home appliance products, to severely crack down on the illegal activities of producing fake and inferior home appliances, and to promptly receive and handle complaints following reports of illegal activity.

The program covers products comprised of color TV sets, refrigerators and freezers, mobile phones, washing machines, computers, water heaters, motorcycles and air conditioning units. Limits on consumer prices will be set for these products and consumers will also enjoy a 13 percent subsidy on the original price.
