Newsletter on REACH China, the Representative Office and more



China implemented China REACH as from 15th October 2010. The proposal will outline new measures, many of which will have a direct impact on foreign companies importing into or manufacturing in China; as such, the program will doubtlessly have a global impact. Given the broad scope of these new laws, it is important to verify whether or not your company falls under China REACH.


In the past, setting up an RO was one of the most popular ways of establishing a business presence in China. However, having noted that in reality ROs were often used to engage illegally in money-making activities, the central government introduced legislative changes in 2010. As they are somewhat cumbersome, these changes may mark the beginning of the decline of the RO.
