Health Canada has no plans to follow the lead of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and open an office in China…The CPSA announced Monday it was opening an office in China, the first outside the U.S., in a bid to reduce the flow of dangerous products reaching the American market.

In a statement to CBC News, Health Canada said none of its officials or inspectors have a physical presence in China. It said any inspections or investigations are carried out by China’s office of quality supervision and inspection.

Any products imported to Canada from China are expected to comply with the Hazardous Products Act. It’s the responsibility of importers, retailers and advertisers to ensure that products coming from offshore comply with Canadian laws.
