Taiwan unveils anti-counterfeit stamp on masks,

Taiwan has introduced a new stamp to be featured on medical masks that will prove their authenticity amid a string of counterfeit scandals. Medical masks manufactured in the country will be required to replace their logo with the embossed stamp of “Made in Taiwan MD” for quality certification starting Thursday (Sept. 17), according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC). “MD” is an abbreviation for “medical device,” wrote CNA. The decision follows the emergence of fakes imported by Taiwanese companies from China and other places, which has sparked calls for action.
