BEIJING — A new regulation on China’s production safety emergency response will take effect on April 1, standardizing emergency response work systems, preparation and rescue.
According to the regulation, the State Council oversees national production safety emergency response work while local governments at the county level and above are responsible for rescue work for local incidents.
Governments at the county level and above and relevant production safety supervision authorities should stipulate rescue plans for potential incidents and make them public. Production units should also make rescue plans.
The regulation also specifies the establishment of rescue teams, training and the preparation of rescue equipment and facilities.
