We should not place the responsibility for dual-quality products entirely on the European institutions because they are only one of the instruments to counter such practices. The inactivity of national regulators, which are paid by taxpayers to monitor possible deviations from the norm, are one significant cause for this conflict. People in the west have already gone through this, but we seem intent on repeating their mistakes. We are obviously not learning from other people's experiences. So, to a certain extent, dual-quality products are of our own making, says Bogomil Nikolov, Executive Director of Active Consumers.
