Year-end inventory: those “beyond the spectacle” events in the bathroom industry
In 2015, the sanitary ware industry was quite unstable. The new version of the national standard “Ceramic Sheet Sealed Faucet” was officially implemented on December 1, 2014. It has been a full year since then. However, in all the sanitary product sampling inspections this year, the ceramic sheet sealed faucet has been repeatedly exposed to fail. Although this is disappointing, it is only the tip of the iceberg for the turbulent bathroom industry. Next, the editor will take you to recall the major events in the sanitary ware industry in 2015.
When can I use healthy and environmentally friendly faucets?
On December 1st last year, the new standard for taps was implemented. However, this year’s wave after wave of quality supervision and random inspections, but riding on the colorful clouds to the faucet manufacturers. According to incomplete statistics, in 2015, provincial and municipal quality supervision bureaus and bureaus of industry and commerce in Shanghai, Fujian, Zhejiang, Shaanxi, Guangzhou, Xi’an, Wenzhou and other places sampled 326 batches of ceramic sheet sealing faucet products and 123 batches of ceramics. The sheet-sealed faucet products were unqualified, and the unqualified rate was 37.7%.
According to the results of the random inspection, the problem of metal contaminants precipitation in the ceramic sheet sealing faucet that the people are concerned about has been significantly improved, but there are many problems such as unqualified surface corrosion resistance and unqualified flow. It is undeniable that the new standard has played a key role in solving the problem of heavy metal pollutants precipitation in faucets, but the Chinese people have a long way to go to use safe, healthy and environmentally friendly faucets.
Imported smart toilet lid is not very safe
On September 25, the Shanghai Municipal Quality Supervision Bureau spot-checked the electronic toilets produced and sold in the city, and 2 out of 10 batches were unqualified. On November 24, Guangzhou Inspection and Quarantine Bureau detected that 4 batches of imported smart toilet covers, 2 batches were unqualified. The Inspection and Quarantine Bureau of Huangdao District, Qingdao City also recently sampled 9 batches of imported smart toilet covers, and 7 batches were unqualified. It is said that the moon abroad is particularly round, in fact, there are times when it becomes curved. In contrast, ceramic toilets are safer.
In the ** quarter of this year, the Shaanxi Bureau of Quality Supervision approved 40 batches of ceramic toilet products from 40 distribution companies in Xi’an, Baoji, Yulin, Hanzhong and Ankang, and 33 batches of products qualified. On January 14, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine announced a random inspection of 178 enterprises in 14 provinces and municipalities including Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Fujian, Jiangxi, Shandong, Henan, Hubei, Hunan, Guangdong, Chongqing, and Sichuan. Among the 178 batches of ceramic toilet products produced, the number of random-checked enterprises accounts for about 29.7% of the total number of ceramic toilet manufacturers in the country. For 70 batches of water-saving toilets and 108 batches of ordinary toilets, the product sampling qualification rates were 94.3% and 91.7%, respectively.
Tianganwuzao carefully enter the production “blacklist”
On April 24, a sanitary ware enterprise in Suzhou Industrial Park caused a fire due to a short circuit of dust removal equipment and electrical appliances; on June 24, a shower room enterprise warehouse in Qingke, Foshan caught fire; on June 27, a fire broke out in a sanitary enterprise in Guxiang, Chaozhou… According to incomplete statistics, at least 9 fires occurred in sanitary ware companies in Chaozhou, Foshan, Zhongshan, Suzhou and other places this year, causing significant property losses. The lesson warned us that “the sky is dry, beware of fire candles.” In order to cause sanitary ware companies to pay attention to the fire, Foshan has issued a policy to link production safety with credit, and banks are not allowed to provide guarantees and loans to companies entering the production “blacklist”. It’s dangerous outside, so be careful about everything.
