China: Notification and Local Agent services for revised “Measures for environmental Management of New Chemical Substances”

Sumika Chemical Analysis Service (SCAS) provides one-stop shop service from the affirmation of the new Chemical Substances in the Chinese inventory to the Notification/Registration to the competent Authorities, which is done by a Local Agency (LA). Sumika Analysis & Evaluation Service (SAES) in China, an affiliate of SCAS, serves as LA for “Simplified Notification (Substances to be manufactured in or imported into China at quantities less than one ton per year, polymers of low concern and so forth)” and “Scientific Record Notification (Substances for R&D to be manufactured in or imported into China less than 0.1 ton per year and imported in China as eco-tox testing samples). For “General Notification (Substances to be manufactured in or imported into China in quantities of one ton or more per year)”, SCAS partnered with a Chinese consultant, which can serve as LA. Depending on the notification type, the LA shall also comply with many obligations under the Measures on Environment Management of New Chemical Substances after the Notification and the Registration have been completed.
