China becomes largest furniture manufacturing country

According to China furniture association, on August 15th 2014 in Shenyang International Housing Expo conference, the attenders all think Chinese furniture industry has developed from massive production to quality product manufacturing.
Currently China produces 25% of the world’s furniture. Since 2006 China has been the largest exporter of furniture in the world. China is as well the largest market consuming furniture. China is expected to consume 500 billion RMB per year. At the same time the wood panel industry have gone through more than ten years fast growth. The total production can reach 200 million cubic meters valued at 800 billion RMB. It’s the laregest player in the production, consume and trading of wood panels.

Experts says the quality of furnture are partially decided by the particle board, mdf and plywood used in the production. Furniture enterprises have to start from the purchasing of quality particle board and mdf.

According to datas, housing industry (furniture, wooden doors, laminated flooring) has been the main application area of wood panels. About 50% of the plywood, 75% of the particleboard and mdf are used in furniture making.

Laminated Particleboard not a Great Idea for Sterile Compounding, FDA Warned

Pharmaceutical compounders, take note: The US FDA wants you to stop using laminated particleboard in your aseptic processing areas.

particle board melamine laminated chipboardThat warning comes by way of a January 2014 Warning Letter to a Texas-based pharmaceutical compounding pharmacy, Home Intensive Care Pharmacy. It was released to the public on 22 July 2014.

In its letter, FDA alleges that the company violated numerous federal regulations, including that it failed to receive “valid prescriptions for individually-identified patients” prior to compounding the drugs. FDA has cracked down on that practice in recent months, issuing 13 Warning Letters citing the deficiency since Feburary 2013. In contrast, FDA only issued two letters citing this in the five years preceding that letter.

But more concerning to FDA, it said, was the unsanitary conditions under which the drugs were allegedly compounded. “Your sterile drugs are packed or kept under insanitary conditions where they might have been contaminated with filth, or whereby they may have been rendered injurious to health,” the agency wrote in the letter.

In one notable instance, the company’s cleanroom—used to compound products under sanitary conditions—used workbenches that were built using particleboard topped with a “laminated veneer.”

“The laminated surface is porous and difficult to clean, and can harbor contamination,” FDA explained, noting that this put the company at odds with 21 CFR 211.42(c)(10)(v).

In other instances reported by FDA, employees working in the cleanroom were improperly gowned, resulting in some employees resting their uncovered arms on the workbenches while processing supposedly aseptic medications.

The company was given 16 days to respond to the agent with specific steps it intends to take to remedy all alleged deficiencies.
