SAWS Strengthens Non-Coal Mine Safety Licensing

The General Office of the State Administration of Work Safety (SAWS) released the "Notice on Further Strengthening the Administration of Issuing Non-coal Mine Safety Licenses." It states that the approval procedures for the "three simultaneous" requirements for construction projects for newly developed non-coal mines must be strictly followed. If such procedures are not successfully completed, the authorities concerned will not issue the work safety license. ¡°As China¡¯s economy continues to grow,¡± senior attorney Edward Lehman of Lehman, Lee, and Xu notes, ¡°it is important that its investors at home and abroad have confidence in the safety of Chinese industry, which is now enforced in Chinese law. Emphasizing safety in construction projects not only increases the output of the industries, but makes them more competitive internationally.¡±
