Study on Chemical Accident Reporting in China

At the end of 2012, the Responsible Production and APELL center was established in the Department of Chemical Engineering of Tsinghua University in association with UNEP. The mission of this center is to promote and implement the Responsible Production Program and the APELL Program of UNEP in order to help the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) improve their risk awareness and their capabilities in accident prevention and emergency response. Accident reporting and publishing are important for lesson learning and major accident prevention. Accident investigations performed either in China or other countries indicate that it is a long term difficulty to efficiently and effectively learn lessons from historical accidents.
Therefore, a task was assigned by UNEP to the Responsible Production and APELL center at Tsinghua University to investigate the current status of chemical accident reporting and publishing in China. With the supports from the experts from the Ministry of Environment of China, China People University and UNEP, this study report was completed by this center. We hope the readers will be able to understand better about the current situations of accident reporting and publishing in China. With your help, we will together promote the publicity of chemical accidents in China so as to enhance the public confidence in the chemical industry in China.

The study describes the applicable regulatory framework and current practices, and supports the learning and sharing of information on chemical accidents responding to China’s critical need for lessons learning from previous accidents. The co-operation also led to an exchange of case studies of accidents with the Major Accident Hazards Bureau (MAHB) of the European Commission. The study is particularly relevant in light of China’s rapid pace of economic development and its corresponding risk of accidents from higher chemical production levels.
