China Issues Guidance Framework for Environmental Risk Assessment of Chemicals

The guide is divided into four parts namely, Scope of Application, Basic Points, Technical Requirements and Report Preparation. General requirements for the risk assessment of chemical substances are specified in the guide, such as assessment steps, assessment conclusion, uncertainty assessment, data quality assessment, risk assessment for special chemicals, etc.

On 3rd September, 2019, China Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) issued a notice [1] to publish the Framework Guide to the Technology Methods of Environmental Risk Assessment for Chemical Substances (Trial), which is an important supporting document for Environmental Risk Assessment and Control Regulation for Chemical Substances. (CL News [2]) This Guide specifies the basic framework for risk assessment, and clarifies the basic points, technical requirements, and report preparation as well. It is worthy noticing that the Guide applies to environmental risk assessments of different exposure pathways for the normal production and use of a single chemical substance, and does not apply to risk assessment under accidental exposure conditions.
