National electrical and electronic products restricted use of public service platforms officially launched
On December 4, 2019, the public service platform for the restricted use of hazardous substances in Chinese electrical and electronic products and the launching ceremony of the China RoHS public service platform were held in Beijing. This platform was established by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in conjunction with the General Administration of Market Supervision and Administration. It aims to implement the requirements of China's RoHS, and in accordance with the concept of green management of the entire life cycle, requires the design and production of electrical and electronic products to reduce harmful substances from the source. Use to reduce environmental safety risks.
As the world's largest producer, consumer and exporter of electrical and electronic products, China produced 1.8 billion mobile phones and 300 million computers in 2018, accounting for more than 90% of the total global output. The annual domestic output of major domestic appliances is about 560 million units. There are about 1.75 billion units. After these electrical and electronic products are discarded, if they cannot be disposed of properly, the harmful substances contained in them will eventually enter the soil and water, endangering the environment and human health. Therefore, the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products must be controlled.
Xin Guobin, a member of the party group and vice minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that accelerating China's RoHS management is an important measure for the green and high-quality development of the electrical and electronic industry. China attaches great importance to restricting the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products, and has issued the "Administrative Measures for the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products", the "Administrative Catalogue for the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products", and the Implementation Arrangement of the Qualification Evaluation System for the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products 》 And a series of regulations, standards and policies. With the launch of the public service platform, the basic framework of China's RoHS management has been established, gradually achieving enterprise management with standards, consumer purchases with identification, government supervision with grasp, and industry development with guarantee. Under the standard of this management system, China's electrical and electronic enterprises will be able to produce more and better green products, actively guide green consumption, realize green growth, and strive to become a practitioner of building an ecological civilization and a beautiful China, becoming Participant and leader of the green development of the global electrical and electronics industry.
There are many kinds of electrical and electronic products. The implementation of China RoHS management is a complex system project. We must work together to promote the improvement of China's RoHS. Xin Guobin put forward five requirements: First, strengthen departmental cooperation and establish a sound mechanism for restricting the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products. The second is to guide enterprises to effectively assume the main responsibility and vigorously design and develop green products. The third is to strengthen supervision and management and gradually improve the level of green development of the industry. The fourth is to actively promote the implementation of laws and regulations, and strive to create a good working atmosphere. Fifth, strengthen international cooperation and continuously improve China's RoHS policy.
At the meeting, Liu Weijun, Director of the Certification and Supervision Department of the State Administration of Market Supervision, attended the launching ceremony and delivered a speech. Responsible comrades from Anhui Provincial Department of Economics and Information Technology, Beijing Municipal Market Supervision and Administration Bureau, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, and Haier Group made separate speeches. 150 people including relevant industry associations, institutions, electrical and electronic companies attended the launching ceremony.
