A Comparative Analysis of Data Requirements under China REACH and EU REACH
Nov 10, 2010
China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) promulgated “Measures on Environmental Management of New Chemical Substances” (MEP Order No. 7, also called China REACH) which came into force on 15th October 2010. The regulation bears some similarities with EU REACH but in practice the two systems are very different. In this article the major differences are outlined.
Data Requirements under China REACH
Oct 06, 2010
Under China REACH, depending on the notification type and the tonnage band, the minimum data requirements vary. There are three basic types of testing, physico-chemical, toxicological and eco-toxicological testing. Certain eco-toxicological testing is required to be carried out within Chinese territory in approved Chinese laboratories. This includes testing on Chinese target organisms, particularly aquatic toxicity (e.g. Zebra fish).
IECSC Search under China REACH
Aug 05, 2010
The Inventory of Existing Substances in China (IECSC) contains all the chemical substances used in China between 1992 and 2003. If a substance is not included in the IECSC, the production, import or use of this substance in China without notification is prohibited. Following the online and formal comprehensive searches, if the substance is not included on the IECSC, it is a currently a new substance in China. The 2010 IECSC inventory includes 45,602 substances.
