China's plastic products export to Europe faces new challenges

the regulation No. 10/2011 on plastic materials and products in contact with food published by the European Commission will be officially implemented on March 25, 2015, and China's plastic products export to Europe faces new challenges. Industry insiders said that China's plastic products export enterprises should strengthen the quality inspection of products. They have more than 10 years of experience in the production and sales of experimental machines in order to meet the new standards

on March 25th, 2015, regulation No. 10/2011 on plastic materials and products in contact with food released by the European Commission will be officially implemented, and plastic products that do not meet the requirements of the new regulations will not be able to enter the EU market. Insiders said that China's plastic products export enterprises should build a safety and health assurance system focusing on "raw and auxiliary material procurement - raw material account management - injection molding link risk control - factory safety and health control", and strengthen the quality inspection of products, so as to meet the new standards

the requirements of the new regulations are more stringent

it is understood that the European Commission announced and implemented regulation No. 10/2011 on plastic materials and products in contact with food on March 24, 2014. After a buffer transition period of nearly one year, it will be officially implemented on March 25, 2015. Plastic materials and products in the EU market may be removed from shelves or notified because they do not meet the requirements of the new regulations

it is reported that this is the second revision of regulation 10/2011 since it replaced the EU plastics directive 2002/72/ec in 2011. Not only American enterprises, the main revisions of the new regulation include: first, two new monomers that can be used to manufacture food contact materials; Second, the specific migration limit of dicyandiamide monomer is 60 mg/kg; Third, the restriction of the original substance 1,3-phenyldimethylamine was changed from the single migration restriction to the joint restriction with the new substance m-phenyldimethylisocyanate, with a specific total migration of 0.05 mg/kg; Fourth, the restriction description has been updated. "After the implementation of the new EU regulations on the quality of food contact plastic materials and products, it will have a great impact on China's plastic products exports, and export enterprises are facing new challenges. In order to meet the requirements of the new EU regulations, the quality inspection of exported plastic products will be more stringent." The person in charge of a plastic products export enterprise in Ningbo said

insiders said that in recent years, foreign countries, including developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, have frequently formulated and updated technical regulations and standards for food contact with plastic products, which has put increasing pressure on export enterprises. While paying real-time attention to the changes in relevant foreign regulations, Chinese plastic products export enterprises should practice their internal skills, Build a safety and health assurance system focusing on "raw and auxiliary material procurement - raw material account management - injection molding link risk control - factory safety and health control", establish and improve the fixed-point procurement system of key raw and auxiliary materials, the regular inspection and verification system, and the raw and auxiliary material change report system. High elastic materials are processed through injection molding. At the same time, enterprises should establish traceable management accounts of key raw and auxiliary materials and product sales accounts, rely on the quality acceptance system of key raw and auxiliary materials, regularly test their raw and auxiliary materials, regularly assess and evaluate suppliers, and trial produce raw materials, new processes, new formulas and new equipment used for the first time, and test safety and health control projects

According to the latest statistics of the General Administration of customs, China exported 860000 tons of plastic products in December 2014, an increase of 40000 tons from November, an increase of 6.2% year-on-year; From January to December, the cumulative export of plastic products was 9.51 million tons, an increase of 6.1% year-on-year. In December 2014, China imported 2.24 million tons of plastic in primary shape, an increase of 290000 tons over November, a year-on-year decrease of 4.7%; From January to December, the cumulative import of primary shaped plastics was 25.35 million tons, an increase of 3.0% year-on-year

last year, the following information about China's plastic products exports showed a slight increase, and the profits of export enterprises also increased. It is learned that in the first 11 months of 2014, China's plastic products industry completed a cumulative output of 66.705 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 7.4%, and the cumulative main business income of plastic products production enterprises was 1840 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 9.6%; The total profit was 100.88 billion yuan, an increase of 8.4% year-on-year; The total tax revenue was 49.99 billion yuan, an increase of 8.6% year-on-year

although China's exports of plastic products have increased slightly since 2014, China's exports of plastic products will be affected after the implementation of EU regulation No. 10/2011 on food contact plastic materials and products on March 25, 2015. "After the implementation of the new EU regulations on plastic products, small and medium-sized plastic export enterprises will face a major reshuffle, and some small plastic enterprises that fail to meet the product quality inspection will be eliminated."
