China : China aims to toughen sanctions against fake and sub-standard vaccines

The draft vaccine administration law is under second reading at the ongoing session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. Companies that produce or sell fake vaccines would face confiscation of illegal proceeds, raw materials, packaging materials and equipment, the draft says. Furthermore, production and business operation will be suspended for rectification, while medicine registration certificates and even pharmaceutical production licenses can be revoked. Other penalties include a lifetime ban on pharmaceutical production and business operation. The draft also stipulates a fine of 15 to 30 times the value of the produced or sold fake vaccines.
