On December 2, 2021, the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) published a notice to consult on the addition of 11 substances into the Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances in China (IECSC). The consultation will end on December 15, 2021.
Details including chemical name, CAS No., molecular formula, structural formula etc. can be assessed here.
These 11 substances were manufactured in or imported into China before October 15, 2003, which fulfilled the supplementation criteria but missed the previous supplementation window. They are now going to be regulated as existing chemical substances in China, and thus free from new chemical registration or notification requirements under the Measures for the Ecology and Environmental Management Registration of New Chemical Substances (MEE Order No.12).
This is the sixth batch of existing substances going to be added into the inventory after IECSC supplementation window was opened in June 2019 (ChemLinked News). The other five batches were included into the IECSC last year and earlier this year, including:
the first batch of 156 substances published on May 6, 2020;
the second batch of 238 substances published on December 19, 2020;
the third batch of 204 substances published on April 15, 2021;
the fourth batch of 8 substances published on July 7, 2021.
the fifth batch of 23 substances published on October 18, 2021.
