China GB/T xxxxx Safety requirements for hazardous chemicals in consumer products is a draft recommended national standard published by China's National Consumer Product Safety Standardisation Technical Commission in April 2017.
Updates: The standard GB/T 39498-2020 Guidelines for Controlling the Use of Key Chemical Substances in Consumer Products (in Chinese) has already been published in 2020 and will come into force on 1 Jun 2021.
The draft standard is also known as the Chinese version of EU REACH annex XVII restricted substances list. If adopted, the standard will restrict 103 chemical substances in various consumer products such as toys, textiles, coatings, batteries, personal care products and furniture. Implementation date is not given yet.
Some of those restricted substances include:
Note: xxxxx means that the code of this standard has not been assigned yet. It is misleading and wrong to call the draft standard Chinese SVHC list for 3 reasons:
The draft standard is mainly based on the EU REACH annex XVII and other existing national safety standards related to consumer products. Some hazardous substances which are not restricted under REACH, such as MBT (CAS No. 149-30-4), and 2,2'-methylene-bis (4-methyl-6-tert-butylphenol) are also included.
For domestic consumer products whether national standards already exist, the limit values in the national standards are used. For products and hazardous substances for which there are no existing restrictions, the draft standard refers to the EU REACH regulation, EN71-9: General Safety Requirements for Organic Compounds in Toys, EN71-12: 2013 Toy Safety - Section 12 N-Nitrosamines and N-Nitroso Compounds, Eco-Textiles Standard Oeko-tex100 -2017 and other foreign standards.
The table below is an example of restriction conditions for organostannic compounds in the draft standard.
