In 1996, the PRC Law on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Wastes (“Current Solid Waste Law”) was established. In 2015, almost 20 years later, this PRC Law was first revised and has since worked to take proper precautions for the environment. However, on 29 April 2020 the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress has once again extensively revised the Current Solid Waste Law (the new revision being the “2020 Revision”), which went into effect on 1 September 2020. These 2020 implications have stricter rules on environmental protection in regards to the import of solid waste.
