Foreword

This  standard  is prepared  for  the  purpose  of implementing  the  “Law  of  the People's

Republic  of China  on  the Prevention  and  Control  of Environmental  Pollution  by  Solid

Waste”, in order to prevent the import of solid wastes that cannot be used as raw materials,

to standardize the import examination  and licensing of solid wastes as raw materials  and

to control the environmental pollution caused by waste wires and cables as raw materials.

As one  of the environmental protection  control standards for  imported solid wastes,  this

standard  shall  be  applicable  to  the  import administration  of  waste  wires  and  cables

(imported solid wastes as raw materials).

This  version  of the  standard  made  suitably  revisions to  GB16487.9-1996,  including  the

name, foreword, scope, cited standards, definition, control  requirements, etc. In regard to

the control requirements, the main  revisions are on control requirements for  radioactivity,

and carried-wastes, and some additions to the categories of the prohibited carried-wastes,

waste wires and cables.

According to relevant law, this standard is enforceable.

This standard  was proposed  by the  Department of  Science, Technology  and Standard,

SEPA.

This standard was drafted by Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences.

This standard was first issued on July 29, 1996.

This standard was approved by SEPA on November 9, 2005.

This standard shall be implemented as of February 1, 2006.

SEPA reserves the right to interpretation of this standard.

3 Definitions

This standard shall use the following definitions:

3.1 Carried-waste shall refer to substances mixed in the imported waste wires and cables

during  the  production,  collection,  packing  and  transportation  processes  (exclusive  of

packing  materials for  the imported  waste  wires and  cables  and other  substances  that

need to be used during the transportation process).

4 Control standards and requirements

4.1   Waste  wires   and   cables   shall   be  prohibited   from   bringing   in   the  following

carried-wastes (exclusive of wastes listed in Article 4.4):

1Radioactive wastes;

2Explosive arms and ammunitions such as discarded bombs and shells, etc.;

3Grease sealed cables  optical fiber cables and lead covered cables;

4Wastes containing polychlorinated biphenyls

5Substances identified as hazardous wastes according to GB5085;

6Other wastes specified in “National Catalogue of Hazardous Wastes”.

4.2 α and β radioactive contamination  limits to the surface of the waste  wires and cables:

For any 300cm  of  the surface area, the average α specific activity value shall not exceed

0.04Bq/cm

3Sealed containers;

4Other hazardous wastes that can be sufficiently  proved to be difficult to avoid being

mixed into the imported waste wires and cables during the production, collection,  packing

and transportation processes.
