English Edition of the Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals in China(2002) is Now Available Free of Charge!
23 Nov 2011. Since it is not clear when the revised edition of the Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals in China will be released next year, CIRS has prepared the English Edition of the Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals in China (2002) to help foreign companies comply with the upcoming decree 591 - Regulations on Safe Management of Hazardous Chemicals in China that comes into force on 1 Dec this year. This will be available free of charge here.
The current Catalog includes more than 3,700 chemicals. The revised Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals will be published in two steps. The new Catalogue will include more than 5000 chemicals for the first step and might be available at the first half of 2012. The biggest difference between the current Catalog and the new Catalog is that GHS classification for hazardous chemicals will be included in the new Catalog.
If your company is involved with the manufacture, export, import, use and transport of the chemicals listed in the Catalog, you might be subject to the following obligations: safety evaluation report, production license, safe use permit, operating license, registration of hazardous chemicals, SDS and chemical labels.
