China New Chemical Substance Notification (China REACH)

Overview

In China, new chemical substances are regulated by "Measures on the Environmental Management of New Chemical Substance"(MEP Order No.7), which is enacted by Ministry of Environmental Protection in China (MEP) on 15 Oct 2010.

Under this ‘Measures’, companies manufacturing or importing chemicals which are not listed in the Inventory of Existing Chemical Substance in China (IECSC) shall submit notification dossiers of new chemicals to Solid Waste and Chemicals Management Center of MEP (SCC-MEP) for approval. The certificate shall be approved before new chemical substance enters the Chinese market. Otherwise, strict penalties will be imposed for non-compliant companies. China NCSN has been dubbed as “China REACH” due to its similarity with EU REACH.

Applicable Substance Scope

New chemical substance (not listed in IECSC):

• Raw materials or intermediates of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, veterinary medicine, cosmetics, food additives, feed additives, etc.;

• Functional ingredients of surfactant, plasticizer, preservative, dispersant, flame retardant, etc.;

• Polymers;

• Substances contained in articles which are intended to be released.

Notification Bodies

• Manufacturers of new chemical substance in China

• Importers of new chemical substance in China

• Foreign companies selling new chemical substance to China

Note: foreign companies and companies in HongKong, Macau and Taiwan shall appoint a Chinese representative agent to complete notification on their behalf;

Compliant Responsibility under China Reach

Under the regulation, notification bodies (manufacturers or importers of new substance in China, or foreign companies selling new substance to China) need to submit new chemical substance notification dossier to Chemical Registration Center (CRC) of MEP for new chemical substances which are not listed on Inventory of Existing Chemical Substance in China (IECSC) before they enter into Chinese Market, otherwise there will be strict penalties imposed for non-compliance.

Since its implementation, MEP Order 7 (China NCSN) has been receiving highlighted attention. As non-Chinese exporters (including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) are not allowed to register directly but rather required to appoint a China-based representative to complete the registration on their behalf, REACH24H provides our clients the integrated service package in dealing with this regulatory barrier.
