In June 2020, the National Health Commission (NHC) started the process of preparing for the revision of the Law on the Prevention and Control of Occupational Diseases of People’s Republic of China. Based on consultations with the NHC on the possible ILO technical contribution, the ILO has provided the NHC its comments and suggestions on the revision of this law. The comments and suggestions are mainly based on the principles and requirements embodied in Occupational Safety and Health Convention, 1981 (No. 155) and its Recommendation (No. 164), Occupational Health Services Convention, 1985 (No. 161) and its Recommendation (No. 171), and other relevant ILO Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Conventions and Recommendations. The comments and suggestions are divided into two parts, “general comments and suggestions” and “specific comments and suggestions". The former is of general relevance or applicable to a number of articles of the Law, while the latter is arranged in the order of chapters, focusing on specific articles and paragraphs. These comments and suggestions could also provide useful reference for those who work in the area of OSH, including social partners, experts, researchers, practioners, and the wider public in China.
