In accordance with the Safe Management of Hazardous Chemicals Regulations (Decree No. 591), the Regulations on the Environmental Management of First-Time Import and Export of Chemicals (Circular No. 140), and agreements made in several conventions, the Ministry of Environmental Protection has released the PRC’s Strictly Restricted Toxic Chemicals Directory (2018). All entities involved in the import and export of toxic chemicals included in the Directory must follow all rules and regulations put forth by the MEP when conducting operations. The Directory went into effect on January 1, 2018, and repealed the PRC’s Strictly Restricted Toxic Chemicals Directory (2014), 2016 Notice on Adding Hexabromocyclododecane to the PRC’s Strictly Restricted Toxic Chemicals Directory (2014), the MEP No. 113 Notice on Strengthening Environmental Management on Toxic Chemicals Import and Export (2009), and the Notice on Further Strengthening Environmental Management of Imported Toxic Chemicals by Trade Entities.
