In China, controlled chemicals are substances included in the List of Schedules of Controlled Chemicals, which can be divided into four schedules in the following:
Schedule I: chemicals that can be used as chemical weapons;
Schedule II: chemicals that can be used as precursors for the production of chemical weapons;
Schedule III: chemicals that can be used as the main raw material for the production of chemical weapons;
Schedule IV: specially designated organic chemicals other than explosives and pure hydrocarbons.
► Those engaged in the production, operation or use of controlled chemicals shall make corresponding notification or record with the competent authority of chemical industry department under the State Council or the chemical industry department under the people's government at the provincial, autonomous regional or municipal level, and accept relevant inspection and supervision.
► Unless for scientific, medical, pharmaceutical or protective purposes, any import of Schedule I controlled chemicals is prohibited.
► Enterprises that import/export controlled chemicals shall be national franchising units and shall apply for the import/export licenses of dual-use items and technologies.
If your products are included in the List of Schedules of Controlled Chemicals, you should check whether these products are under other restrictions such as the Catalog of Hazardous Chemicals. If listed, corresponding obligations shall be met such as registration and permit application.
