The State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) plans to step up random quality checks for goods bought online, according to a statement on its website. The SAIC will take into account consumer reports, and press for co-operation from e-commerce platforms.

Companies like Alibaba, rival JD.com and others have been called out by China's regulators for enabling the sale of low-quality and counterfeit products. Authorities are keen to improve the reputation of Chinese goods.
