Roadmap of Order 7 It will be a long way before stricter enforcement implemented, but you have to remain alert on that. Last Page of MEP Order 7 Improving and progressing

MEP Order 7 published

Fully inspection & enforcement

Currently The authority is now being much stricter with assessment and verification of notification submitted.

Milestone MEP Order 7 came into force on 15 Oct. 2010, replacing SEPA Order 17 in 2003

What is the focus for now? • • • •

Improve the internal work flow Consolidate the communication with active notifiers for better mutual understanding Erase the unclear points in the regulation, and make it “applicable” and “unambiguous” Guidance and supportive documents like: Guidance on Risk Assessment Report Guidance for Hazardous Identification of new chemical substances Measures on Expert Management for Chemical Environmental Management Notice

Case 1: Generic name of a serial products Case 2: Plant extract – whether a plant extract shall be notified only for itself (but purification seems difficult); or notification of plant extract in a solvent is allowed

Enforcement MEP, CRC-MEP, local Environmental Protection Bureaus. Short in man power and experience, that will need more time to be changed.

Penalty: • 10,000CNY-30,000CNY • Repeal certificate “Mild” punishment

China Hazardous Chemicals

State Council Decree 591 Hazardous chemicals are administrated through a complex regulatory network in China, with more than ten ministries involved. As the key legal document, Decree 591 sits at the top of this structure. English ver. available on Chemlinked.com

?

Who will be affected by the Decree 591? Manufacturer in China

?

Who will be the enforcement bodies?

Importer in China

Only Chinese companies will be affected directly.

Distributor and storage company MIIT (Primary authorities)

Transportation company in China

NRCC-SAWS + SAWS Chemical user in China

MEP MOT SAIC MOA

Each enforcement body will be responsible for specific part.

?

What actions shall be subject to the Decree 591

MPS

Production

Use

AQSIQ

Sales and storage

Transportation

SDPC

It will affect the whole supply chain


China Hazardous Chemicals

Why Decree 591 also matters to foreign companies? 1

On one hand, even though your company is located far away from China Mainland, the suppliers or importers of hazardous chemicals listed in the catalogue in China will have to face even stricter inspection of the enforcement authorities. So get to know whether

your business partners have been aware of the responsibilities they shall fulfill in pursuant of SAWS Order 53.

?

It is a domestic law, then why it matters to overseas enterprises? 2

One the other hand, because the implementation of China GHS draws extremely high attention of the competent authorities, companies outside China shall pay much more

attention to their preparation of GHS compliance, especially classification, labeling, SDS and packaging instead of roughly doing translation or simply ignoring differences of standards applied from area to area.


China Hazardous Chemicals

Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals The to-be-released new Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals (China C&L Inventory) is the spirit of China GHS.

7000+ Inventory of Hazardous Chemicals (China C&L Inventory), first batch of 4,000 chemicals might be released around Jun. (But with no classification this time…)

To be updated

335+ Extremely Toxic chemicals synthetic substances & mixtures(agrochemicals)

3800+ (2002ver.)

?

What are the hazardous chemicals under Decree 591?

The current Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals came up with Decree 344

Those chemicals have been defined as “highly toxic chemicals” or other chemicals with toxic, corrosive, explosive, flammable and other properties, which will do harm to people , facilities and environment.

+

• came from Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals (2002). • This is a domestic rule, import and export of those toxic chemicals are not in the scope • Under Decree 591, Art (23) (24) (25) (35) (38) (39) (40) (48) (50) has regulated the production, use, sell and purchase, transporting of extremely toxic chemicals

C&L Inventory from EU, Japan will also be referred to for the update of the new Catalog

Out of scope (under specific control laws) - explosives for civil use ; - fire cracker, fireworks; - radio-active substances; - dangerous chemical for national defense;

Hazardous chemicals or those with priority environmental concern under MEP Order 7 may likely be one source where the new Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals come from in the future

Emergency Response Call A question everyone will ask. ER call has been a must for registration of hazardous chemicals (Art.22 SAWS Order 53), China GHS-compliant SDS and label. Last page of overview of Decree 591 1) For companies those are planning ER Unit on their own • • •

ER call should be a Chinese landline; designated staffer as 24h supporter; staffer should be well trained with competent capabilities of hazardous chemicals handling;

Keep these in mind 24h on-duty Chinese Landline

+

2) Other companies shall appoint accredited agent to handle ER responsibilities. Importers of hazardous chemicals shall set up ER unit or commit the preparation of ER work to import agent or registration institutes. As we have noticed there is only one qualified 24h ER call institute (NRCC- SAWS Order 53 Art.6(4)) located in China so far till now.

3) Penalty:

<30,000CNY

Or

for failure in preparation of ER call.

We have been aware that NRCC will take random inspection over the ER call installation.

â&#x20AC;˘ Decree 591 attached by different measures, standards are the major legislation which enforces the China GHS. Chemical products shipped into China usually do not pass the inspection of enforcement because of failure in classification, packaging and labeling. In some cases, SDS poorly translated or prepared in languages other than Chinese also see direct REJECTION. â&#x20AC;˘ In accordance with Article 78(3) (4) (6) (7) of Decree 591, manufacturers and traders fail in providing SDS, labeling and packaging in line with related standards will face a maximal penalty of 50,000CNY. So how to comply with China GHS? That will be the topic we are going to talk about.
