China Releases Revised Measures on the Management of Transfer of Hazardous Waste

On November 30, 2021, China released revised Measures on the Management of Transfer of Hazardous Waste. Major revisions include clarifying the general responsibilities of relevant parties in the transfer of hazardous waste, advocating the short-distance transfer of hazardous waste, strengthening the information management of hazardous waste transfer, and optimizing approval services in trans-provincial transfer of hazardous waste.

Transfer of hazardous waste in China has been managed according to the Measures for the Management of Hazardous Waste Transfer Manifests since 1999. To meet the new requirements set in the revised Law on Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Waste (2020) that the transfer of hazardous waste shall be managed throughout the whole process in a more efficient manner, it was revised and renamed as the Measures on the Management of Transfer of Hazardous Waste (hereinafter referred to as Measures). The consultation version of it was published on October 21, 2020 for public comments (Chemlinked news)[1]. The new Measures[2] was published on November 30, 2021, and will take effect on January 1, 2022.
