    Chemical Watch news - The minister who heads up Taiwan's Council of Labor Affairs (CLA), Ju-Hsuan Wang, announced on 28 December 2011 that the CLA remains committed to pushing through an amendment to the draft Occupational Safety and Health Act that would effectively ban the manufacture or import of any new chemical substances (those not listed in Taiwan's Existing Chemical Inventory) that have not been registered or risk assessed.


    The proposed Act was approved by the Cabinet, the Executive Yuan, on 30 September but failed to receive its final reading in parliament, the legislative Yuan, before its last session ended on 14 December. The Legislative Yuan holds two regular sessions; from February to May, and from September to December. There will be legislative Yuan elections on 14 January.
