An Overview of China’s Chemical Legislation in Focus
The session witnessed the gathering of over 200 attendees from esteemed European countries, Asia Pacific, and North America. Ms. Yu’s engaging speech provided Western audiences with an in-depth understanding of China’s intricate chemical regulatory landscape.
During her presentation, Ms. Yu covered a wide range of topics, including new chemical substance registration, hazardous chemical transportation, and dangerous goods handling.

Attendees were enthralled as they gained valuable insights into the latest regulatory updates and the rationale behind these transformative changes.
Global GHS Updates and Comparisons
Ms. Yu also shared her expertise on the implementation of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) in the Asia Pacific region. Focusing on the Chinese Mainland, China’s Taiwan, Japan, and Korea, she provided attendees with an overview of GHS regulations and addressed the challenges posed by varying SDS and GHS labelling requirements across countries.
The presentation sparked engaging discussions during the Q&A session, where attendees sought further clarification on topics such as the national rollout of the “One Enterprise, One Product, One QR Code” system in China and the comparison of GHS/SDS/Label requirements among Asian countries.

EU’s Battery Passport: Empowering Sustainable Battery Management with the Digital Product Passport (DPP)
In March 2022, the European Union implemented a groundbreaking labelling management guideline known as the “Digital Product Passport” (DPP). This innovative initiative aims to accelerate the realization of the EU Green Deal, fostering the transition towards a circular economy, reducing the strain on natural resources, and promoting sustainable consumption.
During the last day of ChemCon 2023, Lioba Oerter from 3E provided valuable insights into the development of this policy. With battery compliance emerging as a prominent industry concern, REACH24H actively engaged in extensive discussions with the speaker. Notably, it was revealed that the DPP mandates a Battery Passport for new energy vehicle batteries within Europe. Essentially, this entails providing comprehensive information, including battery manufacturer details, battery model, materials (including renewable components), the total carbon footprint of the battery, carbon footprints at different stages of the battery’s lifecycle, third-party certification reports, and accessible links displaying the carbon footprint.
Looking ahead, we are committed to fostering effective communication and information exchange with international experts on battery compliance matters in global markets. We are dedicated to fostering sustainable growth and innovation for enterprises worldwide.
