Regulations on the Control over Safety of Hazardous Chemicals (Decree No. 591)

The first law that regulated the safety management of dangerous chemicals in China came into being in 1987 when the so-called Regulations of Chemical Dangerous Goods Safety Management took effect on 2 February. After 15 years' constant legal improvement, the State Economic and Trade Commission published on 2nd March 2002 a new regulation Decree No. 344 based on the 1987 law. However, due to the reform of governmental institutions and rapid development of hazardous chemical industry over the first 2010s decade, Decree No. 344 began falling short of the practical situation of Chin's hazardous chemical industry.
