Foreword

This standard is prepared for  the purpose of implementing ‘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  metal and  electrical appliance  scraps as

raw materials.

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

standard shall be applicable to the import  administration of metal and electrical appliance

scraps (imported solid wastes as raw materials).

This version  of standard made  many revisions to  GB16487.10-1996, such as 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.

According to relevant law, this standard is enforceable.

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

(hereafter referred to as ‘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 apply on the following definitions:

3.1 Carried-waste shall  refer to substances which mixed  in imported metal and electrical

appliance  scraps  during  production,  collection,  packing  and  transportation  processes

(exclusive of packing materials for the imported metal and electrical appliance scraps and

other substances that need to be used during the transportation process).
