"Made in China" label on a D-Link Gigabit Ethernet switch.
"Made in China" label on a D-Link Gigabit Ethernet switch.

Made in China (simplified Chinese: 中国制造; pinyin: zhōngguó zhìzào) is a mark affixed to products that were made in the People's Republic of China, specifically mainland China. While Hong Kong and Macau are special administrative regions of China, most products made in those regions are labeled as "Made in Hong Kong" and "Made in Macau", respectively. Although the name "China" is used by both the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China, the label "Made in China" is generally affixed to products made in the former. Products made in Taiwan, which is a different country and has a different government and economy, do not use the "Made in China" label. Rather, either "Made in Taiwan" or "Made in R.O.C." is used. Currently it is uncommon to see "Made in P.R.C." as a product label, but it is becoming more common as some manufacturers may wish to obscure that a product is made in mainland China.

Marketing significance

"Made in China" is one of the most recognizable labels in the world today due to the large manufacturing industry of the rapidly developing China. The label can be seen on a huge range of goods from clothing to electronics. Some companies, such as Apple, consider the "Made in China" brand to be synonymous with lesser quality goods and as such choose not to include this label on their products. An example of this is the "Designed in California" logo found on the Apple iPod. US law requires the country of origin to be visibly displayed on the product, or on the product's container if it is enclosed so that the country of origin mark on the product itself is not visible.

Controversy

Main article: 2007 Chinese export recalls

The 2007 Chinese export recalls were a series of scandals involving tainted food and products exported from China, starting with tainted pet food imported from China to the United States that poisoned pets.[1] The recalls sparked international concern that many products made in China do not meet minimum quality standards. Soon after, the US halted imports of seafood from China after tests detected the presence of drugs unapproved in the US.[2][3] China has gone on record to admit that nearly a fifth of products made in China do not reach minimum standards.[4] Also, some childrens toys made in China were found to contain excessive levels of lead, prompting widespread concern. In 2006, shipments of cough syrup and other medicines, imported from China to Panama and laden with the toxin diethylene glycol, caused mass poisonings and killed 83 people.[5] The 2007 Chinese export confidence crisis refers to a series of product recalls and import bans initiated by the product safety institutions of the United States and European Union against products manufactured in and exported from the Peoples Republic of China because of numerous consumer safety issues claimed from...
