Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) is soliciting public comments on two new standards regarding packaging for dangerous goods. These two standards have been under formulation for years since December 2014 when the MIIT published a plan to initialize the project, which are devised to be in line with the UN Recommendation on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Model Regulations (Rev. 22nd) and certain domestic standards (e.g., GB 28644.1 and GB 28644.2). On June 16, 2023, the authority publicized these two drafts to solicit public comments due by August 16, 2023. Once approved, they will be implemented as mandatory national standards. As planned, they are expected to take effect 12 months later after their official publication.
