Background
In order to implement the Joint Declaration of the Eighth TEMM and carry out the exchange of information about chemical management policies and regulations among China, Japan and Korea. The First Tripartite Dialogue on Chemical Management Policies was held in Kanagawa of Japan in March of 2007. The three countries have reached the agreement at the meeting that China, Japan and Korea should in the first place carry out the exchanges of the information about such aspects as laws & regulations on chemicals management as well as management methods. The main approach is the development of the page on the tripartite cooperation on chemicals at the website of environmental protection department of each country with release of relevant information. The three countries should link their main page to TEMM website. At the same time, relevant websites of the three countries could be linked to each other.

At present, China has issued the list of regulations on chemical management, including Regulations on New Chemical Substances, Regulations on Environmental Administration of the First Import and Export of Toxic Chemicals as well as relevant environmental management documents such as guidelines and circulars.
