    The Ministry of Environment issued the final version of the Designation of Risk Concerned Products and the Safety and Labeling Standards to specify the safety and labeling criteria for high risk products, as well as threshold for substance content, etc. It came into effect on 1 Apr, 2015.

    The draft was issued on 28 Jan 2015 for public consultation until 17 Feb 2015.
