CHINA - China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection’s Solid Waste and Chemical Management Centre (MEP-SCC) has launched a website for easier notification of new chemical substances in the country. Starting on April 1, 2016, only notifications submitted online will be accepted.
Materials that must be uploaded include:
- Simplified notification form
- Safety data sheet
- Risk assessment report
- Test report detailing the substance’s physico-chemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties
- Qualifications of the laboratories
A workflow on how to use the software is available (Simplified Chinese).
