China New Chemical Substance Notification (China NCSN)

In China, chemical substances are regulated by the 'Measures on the Environmental Management of New Chemical Substance' (MEP Order No.7), enacted by the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) of China on 15 Oct 2010. Currently, companies under this regulation manufacturing or importing chemicals not listed in the Inventory of Existing Chemical Substance in China (IECSC) must submit notification dossiers of new chemicals to the Solid Waste and Chemicals Management Center of MEE (SCC-MEE) for approval. The certificate must be approved before any new chemical substances enter the Chinese market or otherwise they will be subject to strict penalties.

Notification Procedure
