Special team formed to probe Vedan product certification

A special team set up by the Ministry of Science and Technology arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on October 29 to investigate the “Safe Product for Health Community” certification recently awarded to three Vedan Vietnam products.

The move was ordered by Minister Hoang Van Phong after the ministry’s city representative office failed to send a report on the case by the October 28 deadline as required.

The ministry’s Chief Inspector, Tran Minh Dung, who leads the team, told SGGP that he had asked the office to submit the report and urged it to revoke the three certificates recently issued to MSG and starch maker Vedan.

Yesterday evening, Ms. Nguyen Thi Sinh, the director of the Natusi Patent Standard Quality Agent (NATUSI), informed Mr. Dung that she had taken all three certificates back from notorious polluter Vedan.

NATUSI is the organization that coordinated with the representative office in granting certificates to 'safe products for health community'.

Today, the team will work with involved parties to clarify issues related to the erroneous certification before announcing an official conclusion.
