China: Companies Burdened by Complex Requirements

The intricacy and complexity of Chinese chemicals laws makes them almost impossible to manage, said a manager of Lubrizol, a U.S. chemicals company, at ChemCon Asia 2017. She stated that the provisions are often formulated ambiguously, the requirements are unclear, and the entire procedure is characterized by a tremendous amount of red tape.

She also observed that the various Chinese agencies that are responsible rarely communicate with each other, so that many specifications must be provided twice. For example, according to the Chinese chemicals law, “Regulations on the Safe Management of Hazardous Chemicals”(Decree 591), agency representatives often demand very detailed specifications.
