Summary

The draft Regulation on Chemical Substance Environmental Risk Assessment and Control was issued on 8 Jan, with the ambition to comprehensively manage chemicals, covering both new and existing chemicals in China. It will make up for the limitations of Decree No. 591, and it will serve as the overarching regulation of environmental management of existing and new chemicals. Although China was initially looking to develop a REACH-like regulation, considering administrative capacity and the administrative burdens inherent in a REACH-like regulation, China is instead opting to use a regulation similar to Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA). The details of the regulation have been reported by ChemLinked, please click here to read more.

  • Chapter 2 Chemical substance environmental risk assessment

  • Chapter 3 Chemical substance environmental risk control

  • Chapter 4 New chemical substance environmental management registration and risk control

  • Chapter 5 Legal liability
