China Includes 28 Substances into Existing Chemical Substances Inventory

On October 23rd, 2020, the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) published a notice [1], announcing to include 28 substances into the Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances (IECSC).

The new additions are comprised of two parts, including 10 qualified new chemical substances which were registered under the Measures on Environmental Management of New Chemical Substances (SEPA Order No. 17 of 2003), and 18 qualified new chemical substances which were registered under the Measures on the Environmental Management of New Chemical Substance (MEP Order No. 7 of 2010) [2].

They are now regulated as existing chemical substances in China, and thus free from new chemical registration or notification requirements.

China has been making continued efforts to reinforce its new chemical management framework. The Measures for the Environmental Management Registration of New Chemical Substances (MEE Order No. 12) [3] in April this year and set to replace the MEP Order No. 7 next year. The official Guidance on Environmental Management Registration of New Chemical Substances  is expected to come out soon. Please stay tuned.
