At present, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment has formed a four-level ecology and environment monitoring system: nationwide, provincial, city-level, and county-level. The MEE governs a total of 3,336 monitoring institutions with 60,000 personnel. Besides, there are more than 3,500 other monitoring agencies with more than 180,000 employees across the country.

Jiangsu Province has the first local laws and regulations on ecology and environment monitoring, which will be implemented from May 1, 2020. The regulations standardize environmental monitoring work and ensure the data’s authenticity, accuracy, and comprehensiveness.

The revised Regulations on the Environmental Management and Registration of New Chemical Substances are more in line with the international system, which simplifies corporate and administrative approval procedures and helps improve relevant management efficiency.
