HÀ NỘI — Thousands of medical facemasks that fall below standards have been seized by the authorities.
The masks were being sold without the necessary paperwork that proves their originality – a breach of intellectual property rights.
In a joint operation between the Hà Nội’s Market Management Department and police, officers raided a house on Ngô Thì Sĩ Street and seized 300 boxes each containing 2,400 masks.
On July 30, inspectors of the General Department of Market Management and the HCM City market management officials seized hundreds of thousands of fake 3M medical masks at Nam Anh Ltd. Co’s factory.
The Hà Nội Market Management Department has requested market management teams to intensify inspections of mask production, transportation and trading activities. — VNS
