China Revises the List of Toxic Chemicals Restricted to Be Imported into or Exported from China

The Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection (China MEP) and Chinese Customs have issued a joint notice No. 85 to publish the 2014 version of the List of Toxic Chemicals Restricted to Be Imported into or Exported from China. The new list replaces previous list and is effective immediately from 1st Jan 2014.

Compared to current list which contains 158 chemicals, the new list includes 4 new entries covering primarilyperfluorooctanesulfonic acid or perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and their derivatives. Pursuant to MEP's order 22, companies which deal with import and/or export of those 4 types of chemicals will need to register with the Chemical Registration Centre (CRC) of MEP and apply for relevant registration certificates or custom clearance notification prior to import or export.

The 4 new entries are:

Chemical Product Name
HS Code
Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (POSA), Potassium Perfluorooctanesulfonate, Lithium perfluorooctanesulfonate, Ammonium perfluorooctanesulfonate, Perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride
Diethanolamine perfluorooctanesulfonate
Heptadecafluorooctanesulfonic acid tetraethylammonium salt(BAYOWET), didecyl dimethyl ammonium perfluorooctanesulfonate
N-ethylheptadecafluorooctanesulphonamide (SULFLURAMID), N-methylheptadecafluorooctanesulphonamide, N-methyl-N-(2-Hydroxyethyl)perfluorooctanesulfonamide, N-(2-Hydroxyethyl)-N-perfluorooctanesulfonamide

The other big change is that the HS Codes for 30 chemical products have been updated. Importers are required to use the new HSCodes to make a declaration to customs when those chemical products are imported into China or exported from China.
