Recently, Beijing authorities upheld a decision to impose an administrative sanction on a famous e-commerce platform after it was discovered selling non-compliant water dispensers. Beijing NHC imposed a fined of 310,000 Yuan, which exceeds normal sanction guidelines issued in China’s water product regulations. Based on our analysis of the explanation released by authorities it appears that authorites tend to view water related products as consumer products with the potential to impact human health which are specifically regulated by “special rules” . Going forward we expect water related product compliance violations, particuarly those that impact the safety of products to be subject to fines similar to those for cosmetics, medical devices, medicines, household appliance, children’s toys, labor protection goods, auto parts and other life and health related products.
