In response to the European and American trade barriers, Guangdong's legislation on commodity bar codes

the Guangdong provincial government recently launched the "measures for the administration of commodity bar codes in Guangdong Province" (hereinafter referred to as the "measures") at the highest end of our battery extrusion experimental machine on the market, forcing enterprises to standardize the use of commodity bar codes in the form of legislation. At the same time, from June 1, enterprises that violate regulations will be formally punished. This is to deal with the "trade barriers" set by the European Union and the United States on exports to Chinese enterprises

from January 1st, 2005, the EU requires that all food sold within the EU must be able to be tracked and traced, otherwise it is not allowed to be sold on the market; The U.S. Food and drug administration also requires that all food and drugs keep full records of the flow process

"these regulations have in fact formed trade barriers to Guangdong's export enterprises." Luo Shaohua, chief engineer of Guangdong Provincial Bureau of quality and technical supervision, revealed that at present, among 650000 enterprises in Guangdong, only 18000 enterprises have adopted the global unified marking system, which can realize effective product tracking and traceability, and logistics enterprises are less than 1% But for this new problem, the state has no special laws and regulations. At present, the "measures for the administration of commodity bar codes" formulated by the State Administration of quality supervision in 1998 is still in use, and its revised version has not yet been issued. Yang Hua, the regulation department of the Guangdong Provincial Bureau of quality and technical supervision, said that in order to improve the regulations, Liaoning, Shenyang, Nanjing and other places had previously made local legislation. The measures of Guangdong Province for the administration of commodity bar codes are mainly aimed at 11 kinds of pre packaged products in five categories: food, cigarettes, wine, beverages, drugs, health products, cosmetics, medical devices, daily chemicals, children's toys, household appliances, etc. they are forced to mark commodity bar codes in product marks, while fresh products and other products do not belong to this category

the measures does not set a threshold for printing enterprises, as long as it is legal. However, it stipulates that when undertaking the printing business of commodity bar codes, the system member certificate corresponding to the commodity bar codes or the filing documents of overseas registered commodity bar codes should be checked, copied and archived for future reference, and the archiving period is 2 years. In the sales process, the "measures" clearly requires that sellers should not charge the supplier fees such as entry fees, shelving fees and information processing fees in the name of commodity bar codes, otherwise they can be fined twice the fees, but the maximum fine should not exceed 30000 yuan. At the same time, the measures allow sellers to use in store bar codes for reprocessed or irregularly packaged goods in the sales place, but they should be prepared according to relevant national standards; If a qualified commodity barcode has been marked, the Seller shall directly use the commodity barcode and shall not prepare or use the barcode in the store separately. Otherwise, the administrative department for quality and technical supervision at or above the county level will order it to make corrections within a time limit. If it fails to make corrections within the time limit, it may be fined not less than 1000 yuan but not more than 10000 yuan

"In fact, the five types of product codes currently emphasized are relatively easy. The codes of finished products that are diverse, difficult to classify, small in batch, or even not in a complete sense are relatively complex, such as clothing, shoes and hats, toys, agricultural products, battery shell bottom profiles that are stable and meet safety requirements, as well as building materials, furniture, lighting, home beautification supplies, etc. Although these products are sold in ordinary supermarkets, a considerable part of them use in store bar codes or self-made Coding, which will increase social costs and affect the use of bar codes. " Lizhixin, President of the Guangdong Institute of standardization and director of the Guangdong Branch of the China article coding center, said that the state should investigate and remove the samples as soon as possible, specify the coding methods in the products of relevant industries, speed up the pace of international integration, and eliminate the negative impact of trade barriers on enterprises after the experimental machine is loaded
