About GB 30871-2022 

On March 15, 2022, the National Standardization Administration of the People’s Republic of China released the “Safety specifications of special work in hazardous chemicals enterprises” – GB 30871-2022. This standard replaced GB 30871-2014 and came into force on October 1, 2022.  

GB 30871-2022 is a mandatory national standard that enterprises must comply with. It stipulates requirements for special work for hazardous chemicals enterprises and templates of safe production work certificates for eight types of special work. 

Hazardous Chemical Safety Standards: EU vs. China 

In the European Union, key directives such as the Seveso III Directive and Directive 89/391/EEC establish rigorous standards for preventing major accidents involving dangerous substances and promoting occupational safety and health across all sectors. 

Similarly, China enforces its GB 30871-2022 standard to ensure safety, quality, and compliance across various industries, including hazardous chemicals enterprises.  

Why is GB Standard Compliance Important for Global Manufacturers? 

Global EHSQ standards are crucial for multinational corporations to prevent incidents, ensure operational continuity, and enhance corporate reputation. 

Manufacturing plants in China must remain compliant with both the GB standard and corporate standards issued overseas.  

Failure to comply with governmental standards can result in penalties and shutdowns, while non-compliance with corporate standards means working against the corporate EHSQ risk reduction practices.  

Moreover, the need to comply with GB standards may block digitalization initiatives, becoming a hurdle on the way towards Operational Safety Excellence. 

Thus, adherence to the GB standard is not only a legal requirement but also a strategic imperative for both local plants and international corporations operating in China.
