BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) -- China plans to unroll quality certification for high-end products and services amid efforts to push consumption upgrade, a senior official said Tuesday.

The program will cover both goods and services that include green and organic foods, smart home appliances, health services and elderly care services, Liu Weijun, deputy head of the Certification and Accreditation Administration, told a press conference.

Liu said the government would work to increase the supplies of premium products and services through improved quality certification, and thus adapt to consumer demands for quality.

The country will also intensify the crackdown on illegal and faulty quality certification and accreditation practices, Liu said.
