China Intends to Update Solid Waste Identification Standards

In addition to its announcement last week on a scrap import ban, China filed a notification at the World Trade Organization (WTO) that it intends to update its Solid Waste Identification Standards.

ISRI has obtained a copy of the draft in Chinese and is translating the document for analysis and preparation of comments because it, too, could impact trade depending on how changes to the existing policy changes the way the Chinese government will determine between scrap commodities and unusable waste. Comments will be due by September 1, and we would welcome input from ISRI members.

Please contact Adina Renee Adler if you are interested or have any questions.
