Non-Government Organisations (NGO’s), governments and other stakeholders have been in dire need to quickly place orders of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies to ensure the safety of their staff and personnel
managing the Covid-19 crisis inside and outside health systems. Some Asian manufacturers have met required standards and exceeded delivery expectations. However, some PPE and other medical supplies entering the UK, Europe and the USA
from the PRC have in cases been fake or have not met the specified recipient country standards contrary to client requests, costing millions in losses.
Opportunistic ‘pop up’ suppliers are entering the supply
chain offering equipment and PPE supplies to take advantage of the surge in global demand, producing products that have not met time deadlines or more importantly failed to meet the quality standards required for supply to the frontline
medical teams and other key service providers currently battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
I-OnAsia is proud to have partnered with Vienna-based intelligence firm ViennEast in providing a streamlined quality control process for PPE and other related goods obtained by government and NGO’s from Asia during the Covid-19 outbreak into countries experiencing a significantly higher demand as a direct result
of the current global pandemic.
