its own version of Agenda 21 for the Oceans. This policy document addresses sustainable development of ocean, sea, and coastal areas as well as marine industry and islands; the sustainable use and conservation of marine biological resources; marine environmental protection; natural marine disaster prevention and reduction; international marine affairs; and public participation.

One of the priority projects listed in China's Agenda 21, the Sustainable Development of the Huanghe River Peninsula, has been underway since March of 1995. It is the first such project supported by the UN Development Programme (UNDP). In a project review meeting held in May 1996, Chinese and UNDP officials and experts praised the progress of the project. On another priority project of China's Agenda 21, the Hazardous Wastes Management, Treatment and Disposal Measures and Facilities of Tianjin City, Chinese and American experts completed a feasibility study in October.


(c) International Environmental Standards

In March, China established an Environmental Management System Audit Center. This Center, which is administered by NEPA, is to promote ISO 14,000 in China. The Center selected a first group of five enterprises as ISO 14,000 audit experiment targets in August, and a second group of 20 enterprises in October.


(d) Bilateral Legal Cooperation

In 1996, China signed a number of bilateral environmental cooperation agreements, including one with Denmark ( China/Denmark Environmental Cooperation Agreement, Beijing, 12 January); and the Netherlands ( China/Netherlands Environmental Cooperation Agreement, Beijing, 14 June).

(1) The Ozone Layer

The Ozone Layer Protection (Amendment) Bill 1996, gazetted in December, sought to make various procedural amendments to the principal Ozone Layer Protection Ordinance (OLPO), particularly in relation to the seizure and forfeiture of goods. There were also proposals to allow appeals from decisions of the Director of Environmental Protection (DEP) to go to the Administrative Appeals Board and to empower the Secretary for Planning, Environment, and Lands, in consultation with the Advisory Council on the Environment, to make regulations and amend the schedule of substances in OLPO.
