On 18 December 2020, the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) released the Announcement on Publishing the Second Batch of the List of Standards for Green Product Assessment. The announcement contains three new standards that are added in the List of Standards for Green Product Assessment, specifically:
|GB/T 37866-2019||Green product assessment—Plastic products|

Green product assessment—Packings for express service
The Opinions of the General Office of the State Council on Developing a Unified Standard, Certification and Identification System of Green Products (issued in December 2016) stipulated that a green product identification, standards list and certification catalogue should be uniformly published. Green product certification should then be organized in accordance with the standards included in the standard list.
On 12 April 2018, the first batch of the List of Standards for Green Product Assessment was officially released. It included assessment standards for 12 green products, namely: textile products, solar water heating system, waterproof materials and sealants, sanitary wares, building glass, thermal insulation, wood plastic composites products, furniture, paper and paper products, coating material, ceramics tiles (board), and wood-based panels and wooden flooring.
There are totally 15 standards included in the List of Standards for Green Product Assessment . The release of the List is a key means to achieve a unified national standards, certification and labeling system for green products. The list provides a standard basis for improving the green market system and increasing the supply of green products.
