Draft law expands barrier-free label requirement to more products


More products will be required to provide voiceovers, large characters, braille or other barrier-free versions of labels or instructions for consumers, said an official from the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

"The requirement is to meet the demand of the elderly and the disabled, offering them more convenience in reading, and it has been written into the new version of a draft law on the construction of barrier-free environment," Zang Tiewei, spokesman of the NPC's Legislative Affairs Commission, told a news conference on Sunday.

He revealed that the new version of the draft will be submitted to an upcoming session of the NPC Standing Committee, which is scheduled to be held from Monday to Wednesday in Beijing, for a third review. In general, a draft will become a law in China after being read three times by the NPC Standing Committee.
