BEIJING — More than 1,000 Chinese firms have joined a product quality monitoring system with technology provided by Chinese tech firm Inspur.
At the launch of the system in Beijing on Sept 26, Wei Chuanzhong, director of the Chinese Society of Inspection and Quarantine, said China’s quality inspection work needs technological support. The society has teamed up with Inspur to develop the system.
The system, built with cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence (AI) and server hardware technology, can generate a unique QR code for each product, which allows consumers to scan for details on its production history and certifications.
Firms including Kweichow Moutai, maker of China’s top liquor brand Maotai, and air conditioner maker Gree, have become the first group of firms to join the system.
Sun Pishu, CEO of Inspur, based in eastern China’s Shandong province, said that the QBBSS system has covered 17 provincial-level areas. It pushes producers to maintain their brand image and helps quality watchdogs carry out monitoring.
Chen Gang, member of the Party group of the State Administration for Market Regulation, urged local authorities to make good use of the quality inspection tool and oversee local producers in joining the system and accepting public monitoring.
