As an important port city in Southeast Asia, Singapore has a well-developed petroleum product processing industry. Most of the oil shipped from the Middle East to Asia is processed in Singapore. Therefore, Singapore's leather chemicals export are very popular. Oulian have involved in China export service for many years and have rich experience in importing and exporting, hereby introduce leather chemicals export form Singapore to China service to you.
As a result of recent changes to regulations, the requirements for the leather chemicals export form Singapore to China have become more stringent and more complex. In contrast to the European Union, China has now adopted all the GHS criteria governing the classification of chemicals. If Singapore want processing leather chemicals export to China, this would mean a re-evaluation of the products.
Which chemical hazard?
The good news first: China has adopted all of the GHS criteria as they were envisaged in the UN GHS. As such hazard classes and hazard categories like 'Acute Tox. 1' or 'Flam. Liqu. 2' are determined using the same criteria (toxicity and flash point boundary) as in UN GHS.
There is however a snag: The Chinese chemical regulations only accept studies on chemical, physical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties that have been conducted in a Chinese laboratory. The Chinese specific standards often do not concur with the OECD methods and there is an unnecessary repetition of animal testing. This can lead to differing results and as such to different classifications of substances.
