However, there are some units that take advantage of the form of temporary import for re-export to fake the origin and origin of wooden floors. Recently, the status of plywood (plywood) forged Vietnamese origin is circulating in the US, causing a lot of anger. Failure to intervene in time will lead to the US tightening management, directly affecting genuine Vietnamese plywood manufacturers.

The Minister of Industry and Trade has just signed and promulgated Circular No. 22/2019/TT-BCT stipulating the temporary suspension of border-gate trading and temporary import of plywood into Vietnam for re-export to the US. This move is expected to eliminate the situation that plywood disguised as Vietnamese origin is exported to the US, which has caused a lot of frustration over the past time. – Source: Online financial magazine.

  2. Check the information of the wood flooring factory in Malaysia (website, fanpage, address on gg map, authenticated photos).
  3. Genuine Malaysian laminate flooring must have "Made in Malaysia" information on publications such as: box, back of board, catalog, sample book, etc.

Note: Information such as: Malaysia standard, Malaysia technology, HDF Made in Malaysia, etc., is not genuine Malaysian laminate flooring.

Kosmos is willing to offer a reward of 2 BILLION VND for those who can prove that the Robina 2023-2026 wooden floor collection is not a genuine Malaysian product.
