The state issued the foundry industry market norms "China's foundry industry access conditions" rules.

CastingIndustry is one of the basic supporting industries for China's industrial development. The development of China's foundry industry has so far faced challenges and opportunities. Only by improving its overall competitiveness and influence can it gain a firm foothold in the entire global foundry market. At present, the overall market of China's foundry industry is not standardized enough. The casting process of foundry enterprises is relatively backward as a whole, and there are many problems such as high energy consumption, serious pollution, poor working conditions, poor casting quality and so on. On the other hand, China has not had an access standard for the foundry industry for a long time, and the threshold for foundry enterprises to open factories is relatively low, resulting in more workshop foundry enterprises in China, which are relatively lacking in production and management, at the same time, the number of small and medium-sized enterprises is large, and many enterprises are not competitive, which seriously restricts the development of China's foundry industry. In view of this, China has issued the "China Foundry Industry Access Conditions", the following are the conditions:

Article 1: The purpose of formulating the access conditions for China's foundry industry is to guide the healthy, orderly and sustainable development of China's foundry industry in accordance with relevant national regulations and policies, to enhance the overall level of China's equipment manufacturing industry and to provide high-quality castings for various industries in the national economy, and to realize China's transformation from a world foundry power to a foundry power.

Article 2: the implementation of the casting industry access system, in accordance with the "casting industry access conditions" to speed up the elimination of those small and backward technology, energy consumption, serious pollution, poor operating conditions of the casting enterprises, to curb the vicious competition and waste of resources in the industry.

Article 3: In the process of implementing the casting industry access system, enterprises will be actively guided to form a reasonable business scale through mergers and reorganizations; actively develop casting industry clusters or casting industrial parks in areas where conditions permit, optimize resource allocation, and vigorously develop clean production and Circular economy; cultivate a group of "specialized, special, refined and new" small and medium-sized casting enterprises to improve their comprehensive competitiveness, casting product quality and corporate efficiency.

Article 4: The layout of foundry enterprises and the determination of the site shall conform to the national industrial policies and corresponding laws and regulations, and conform to the development plans of the equipment manufacturing industry of all provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government. No new foundry can be built or expanded in the first-class area, and the pollutant emission (water, gas and noise, etc.) indicators of the existing foundry should comply with the relevant national standards for the first-class area. In Class II and Class III areas, the emission indicators of pollutants (water content, gas and noise, etc.) of the new foundry and the original foundry shall comply with the relevant national or regional standards.

Description: Class I areas refer to scenic spots, nature reserves, water sources and other areas in need of special protection designated by the relevant competent departments of the State Council and the people's governments of provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government; Class II areas refer to residential areas, commercial and traffic mixed areas, cultural areas, general industrial areas and rural areas as well as areas not included in the 1. three types of areas; Class III areas refer to specific industrial areas.
