Removing Regulatory Roadblocks
Expediting Market Access
> A company had been importing a new chemical substance A used as emetics before the enforcement of the Measures for the Environmental Management of New Chemical Substances (2003). Substance A is widely used in the production and synthetic technology of agrochemical products. According to Article 42 of MEP Order 7, China MEP will organize a new chemical substance investigation every five years. For those who have produced or imported legally within the boundary of the People’s Republic of China before 15 Oct 2003, the MEP will add the substances into IECSC. (1) Will the substance A be added into the IECSC after the investigation? (2) Before added into the IECSC, is the company allowed to continue importing? (3) If the substance A should be notified, can the company make notification and at the same time import the substance?
> How will a new substance be included into the IECSC under MEP Order 7?
> The search on the IECSC can only provide the result whether a substance is listed on it without any further information. However, for search on some foreign inventories, the physic-chemical properties of non-confidential substances are available for public reference. To standardize Chinese chemical management, will the authority add more information for non-confidential substances?
How to determine the hazard classification of mixtures?
If the new chemical substances has already been notified under SEPA Order 17 (predecessor of MEP Order 7), is it necessary to comply with the scientific research record notification under MEP Order 7?
What chemicals need to be registered?
What hazardous chemicals need to go through legal inspection?
Is registration needed if paint is imported, sub-packaged as commodities, and sold to downstream companies for direct selling in the market?
