China reshuffles shipbuilding white list

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has released the fourth batch of the shipbuilding white list, adding six shipyards while removing seven yards from the list.

In the latest white list, Huatai Heavy Industry, Jiangsu Dajin Heavy Industry, Tsuneishi (Zhoushan) Shipbuilding, Zhejiang Xinle Shipuilding, Fujian Changxing Shipbuilding Industry and Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries have all been added to the white list.

Meanwhile, Dalian Liaonan Shipyard, Qingdao Shipyard and bankrupt Nantong Mingde Shipbuilding, Jiangsu Eastern Heavy Industries, Jiangsu Rongsheng Heavy Industries, Zhejiang Shipbuilding and Zhejiang Zhenghe Shipbuilding have been removed from the list.

After the reshuffle, the white list now has 70 shipyards.

MIIT tightened regulations on the white list in 2016 and shipyards are required to submit a self-examination report every year while authorities will conduct investigation at the shipyards every two years.
