This one-day course provides information on important chemical control regulations in China, covering China REACH, toxic chemicals for import/export, Decree 591 and China GHS.

Under China REACH, manufacturers and importers of new chemical substances and restricted toxic chemicals must register with the Ministry of Environmental Protection before they can put their products on the Chinese market. Regulations on the Safety Administration of Hazardous Chemicals (Decree 591) are the principle regulations on managing hazardous chemicals in China. China has officially implemented the UN GHS since 2011 and GHS labels and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) must be provided by suppliers of hazardous chemicals, including foreign companies.

This course is designed to provide attendees with basic information of the regulations and their obligations on registration, licensing and hazard communications as a foreign exporter, importer, manufacturer or seller.
