Understanding Newly Introduced Guidance for MEE Order No. 12: Part I

Dec. 28th, 2020

On November 17th, 2020, the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) published the Guidance on Environmental Management Registration of New Chemical Substances[1], along with tables used in registration of new chemical substances and instructions for filling them in.

The Guidance is a normative document dedicated to supporting the implementation of MEE Order No. 12 [3], which will replace MEP Order No. 7 next year. It details requirements laid out for the registration of new chemical substances, with an aim of providing facilitation for businesses involved and enabling more standardized and better-regulated practices in this regard.

Ms. Nelly Chen, a senior regulatory consultant from REACH24H elaborated on major highlights in the Guidance at  CRAC-HCF 2020 [2], to help you get a better understanding of your obligations and ensure better regulatory compliance. (You can also access Ms. Ting Shen’s presentation [in English language] on how to know your portfolio and start preparing now for MEE Order No. 12 via the link above.)
