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,

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

control  the  environmental  pollution   caused  by  waste  and   scrap  of  plastics  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  and scrap  of plastics

(imported solid wastes as raw materials).

This version  of standard made  many revisions to  GB16487.12-1996, such as the  name,

foreword, scope,  cited standards, definitions,  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,

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  Waste and scrap of plastics

This refers to the remnant materials, leftover materials, and inferior products

produced in the manufacturing and processing of plastics or used thermoplastics that

have been washed and processed (in chips, blocks, granulates or powder).

3.2  Carried-waste

This refers  to substances mixed  in imported waste  and scrap of  plastics during the

production, collection, packing and transportation processes (excluding packing materials

3




for the imported waste and  scrap of plastics and other substances that  are necessary for

transportation).

4 Control standards and requirements

4.1  Waste  and   scrap  of  plastics   shall  be  prohibited   from  containing  the   following

carried-wastes (excluding the wastes listed in Article 4.4).

1Radioactive wastes;

2Explosive arms and ammunitions such as discarded bomb and shell, etc.;

3Substances identified as hazardous wastes according to GB5085;

4Other wastes listed in “National Catalogue of Hazardous Wastes”.

4.2 α  and  β radioactive  contamination  limits to  the  surface of  the  waste and  scrap  of

2

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

2

exceed 0.04Bq/cm  and that of β shall not exceed 0.4Bq/cm

2

.

4.3 The specific activity  value of the radionuclide in  the waste and scrap of  plastics shall

not exceed the limits specified in List 1.
