Cross-sectoral industrial association of employers of Tomsk Oblast ("MPO") offers to toughen rules on labeling of products produced in the Russian Federation in connection with large-scale influx of counterfeit goods from China, said association president Cyril Novozhylov at a press conference at the press center of the agency "Interfax-Siberia" in Tomsk .

Was revealed that the rotor shaft and put on a" cold "welding. Connection between them can break and the load could fall, "- said K.Novozhilov.
In his opinion, one of the ways to fight against counterfeiting is tougher labeling rules of Russian products — namely, the use of the designation "Made in Russia" only on the product, in which at least 50% of value added produced in the territory of the Russian Federation. At the same time, Novozhylov noted that the legislative framework on the issue in Russia is not regulated.
