The Action Plan does not impose any direct requirements on individual facilities. Instead, it provides guidelines and goals for government agencies responsible for safety supervision of hazardous chemicals in China. Specifically, the Action plan outlines 40 major enforcement actions to be taken by relevant authorities from December 2016 to November 2019.

The Action Plan has an impact on facilities that produce, store, use, sell, import, transport, or dispose of hazardous chemicals.
