China to implement national standard on recycling iron and steel raw materials in 2021
The national standard on "Recycling Iron and Steel Raw Materials" was issued by the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation (National Standardization Administration) on December 14, 2020.
The national standard on "Recycling Iron and Steel Raw Materials" stipulates the terms and definitions, technical indicators, inspection methods, and acceptance rules of recycling steel raw materials. Strict regulations are imposed on non-metallics mixed in during the production and collection process, and extremely strict limits are imposed on radioactive pollutants, explosives, and hazardous waste.
The implementation of the national standard on "Recycling Iron and Steel Raw Materials" will play an active role in promoting the recycling of high-quality recycling steel raw materials in the steel industry, energy saving and emission reduction, green development, and effective use of foreign iron and steel resources. It has important strategic significance for the iron and steel industry.
After the issuance of the new standard, relevant ministries and commissions will jointly issue the "Announcement on Regulating the Management of Recycling Iron and Steel Raw Materials Import Management" based on actual conditions to promote and allow the import of products that meet the new national standard.
