China’s industry ministry on Friday said it has ordered 12 steel mills to come back into compliance following breaches of environmental, safety and other regulations, while it has removed another 19 companies from a qualified enterprises list. The breaches range from excessive pollution to a failure to submit a self-inspection report on time, according to a document published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Reuters reported. The MIIT has been stepping up its attempts to regulate the sprawling steel industry in China, the world’s biggest producer of the metal, while the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and local authorities have also intensified inspections and imposed restrictions on production in key steel cities. Some of the 19 companies taken off the list of qualified enterprises were removed because they have not been producing for more than a year. Others have been incorporated into other firms or carried out capacity swaps, according to the document.
