Background:

The Summit Meeting on Chemical Regulations in Asia Pacific (SMCR) is regarded as the pioneer summit in China to communicate chemical regulations in Asia Pacific region. The first Shanghai Summit Meeting was held in 2011, and has won intense support from competent authorities from these three countries since then. SMCR has rapidly become one of most influential chemical regulatory conferences worldwide.

SMCR invites chemical regulatory experts, officials and industry representatives to share chemical regulatory updates and compliance solutions with an aim to assist collaboration among countries in Asia-Pacific region, build transparent sharing of regulatory updates and enforcement measures, and promote the safety and sustainability of chemical industry in Asia-pacific region.


The 2nd Summit Meeting on Chemical Regulations in Asia Pacific (The 6th Summit Meeting on Chemical Regulations in China, Korea and Japan) Japan Summit which is jointly hosted by Chemical Inspection and Regulation Service Limited and Japan Environmental Management Association for Industry will be held in Tokyo on 10 November 2016. During this summit, experts from Tianjin Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau (Tianjin CIQ), National Registration Center for Chemicals (NRCC), China Solid Waste and Chemicals Management Center (MEPSCC) will analyze the current supervisory situation of the import and export of chemicals in China as well as the management policy in Port of Tianjin, registration of hazardous chemicals and its implementation guidance and environmental administration policies for chemicals in China respectively. Meanwhile, experts from CIRS will also give a speech on China new chemical substance notification case study as well as an overview of China GHS       

The Asia-pacific region is one of the most promising chemical markets around the world. Its needs for chemicals take up about one third of the global demand. As a result, the world is paying more and more attention to the safety of chemicals as well as the sustainable development in Asia-pacific region. Under the current strict supervision and inspection, the whole chemical industry now focuses on how chemical enterprises can improve their regulatory compliance work; how chemical enterprises can ensure the stability of production and trade; and how chemical enterprises can turn challenges to opportunity facing technology gap, lack of experience and increased cost. In recent years, chemical accidents happen frequently. The whole society is now aware of the significance of chemical registration and safety management. For these reasons, the Summit Meeting on Chemical Regulations in China, Korea and Japan, Japan Summit was held in Tokyo for the first time in September 2015. The 2016 Japan Summit is also to be held in Tokyo for the purpose of strengthening mutual cooperation, sharing chemical laws and regulations in different countries as well as the latest developments and promoting the safety of chemicals as well as sustainable development tin Asia-pacific region.       

This summit particularly arranges a panel discussion (about an hour) to further the communications and discussions between the experts and enterprises. There is no doubt that enterprises engaged in the import and export of chemicals in China can obtain important information from this summit!
