The State Council of the People's Republic of China issued the "Comprehensive Action Plan on the Safety Control of Hazardous Chemicals" (危险化学品安全综合治理方案) (the Action Plan) on 29 November 2016. The Action Plan aims to further strengthen the decisions and policies regarding safety management of hazardous chemicals, in light of the explosion accident that occurred in Tianjin last year. The Action Plan does not impose any direct requirements on individual facilities. Instead, it provides guidelines and goals for government agencies responsible for safety supervision of hazardous chemicals in China. Specifically, the Action plan outlines 40 major enforcement actions to be taken by relevant authorities from December 2016 to November 2019. It also provides targeted deadlines for each individual enforcement action. The Action Plan has an impact on facilities that produce, store, use, sell, import, transport, or dispose of hazardous chemicals.

The historic referendum vote on 23 June 2016 by the public in the United Kingdom (UK) (which includes England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Gibraltar) on whether the UK should remain in the European Union (EU), otherwise known as “Brexit,” has sparked many concerns in businesses operating in Europe and the UK. The future of many political, trade and commerce issues between the UK and the EU will remain unsettled until the former’s formal initiation of Article 50 procedures under the Treaty on European Union (“Withdrawal of a Member State from the EU”) and the related negotiations. However, it is clear now that if Brexit does occur – and the UK does leave the EU – companies, especially importers of chemicals and chemical products, must have a proactive strategy to handle the commerce and regulatory impacts of the UK's departure from the EU.
