China Defends Safety of its Exported Tires

July 19, 2007

SHANGHAI --- In response to a U.S. safety recall of some tires manufactured by Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., Chinese government inspectors have defended the safety of the country's exported tires.China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said that it had tested a random sample of the kind of tires being shipped to the U.S. An agency representative told the Wall Street Journal that the Hangzhou Zhongce-made tires were found to "meet the relevant criteria in the U.S." In addition, the Chinese tire manufacturer wrote a July 11 letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration saying the company had found no reason to believe its tires are "defective or dangerous."When contacted by the Wall Street Journal, the NHTSA declined to comment on the latest claims by the Chinese government and the Chinese tire exporter.
