Ministry of ecological environment: canceling the qualification license of environmental impact assessment institutions is not a deregulation
environmental impact assessment is considered to be the "first line of defense" to stop pollution, but the environmental impact assessment law cancels the administrative license of environmental impact assessment qualification of construction projects. The Ministry of ecological environment said on February 13 that the cancellation of the qualification license of environmental assessment institutions was not a deregulation. It transferred clues of environmental assessment institutions to Ningxia and other four provinces, releasing the signal of strict control
there are violations and frauds among the environmental assessment institutions
four environmental assessment institutions involved in this transfer are Ningxia Zhicheng an environmental technology consulting Co., Ltd., Inner Mongolia BASBA Environmental Technology Consulting Co., Ltd., aluminum International Engineering Co., Ltd. and Henan Maida Environmental Technology Co., Ltd. Most of the problem clues transferred were found by the Ministry of ecology and environment when organizing the technical review of the environmental assessment documents. The main problem is that the environmental assessment institutions are suspected of violating the relevant national environmental assessment standards and technical specifications in the process of preparing the environmental assessment documents, the environmental assessment documents prepared have serious quality problems, and some environmental assessment institutions have resorted to fraud, modified several environmental assessment documents and took practical actions to cope with the inspection
the Ministry of ecological environment said that it transferred some clues of environmental assessment institutions to the provincial ecological environment departments in Ningxia, Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang, Henan and other provinces, and required the relevant departments to carry out investigation and evidence collection according to law, punish the existing illegal acts according to law, and transfer the suspected crimes to the judicial organs for criminal investigation
the regulatory focus shifted from "beforehand" to "during and after the event"
the environmental impact assessment law was promulgated and implemented on December 29, 2018, in which the administrative licensing of the environmental impact assessment qualification of construction projects was canceled. The Ministry of ecological environment believes that the EIA qualification management of construction projects that has been implemented for many years has played an important role in ensuring the preparation quality of EIA documents, effectively preventing environmental pollution and ecological damage, strengthening the effectiveness of the EIA system, and cultivating an EIA market with certain self-regulation ability. Under the new situation of comprehensively deepening the reform of "release, management and service", with the increasing intensity of in-process and post event supervision of EIA technical verification, the focus of supervision has also shifted from "in advance" to "in-process and post event". The revised environmental impact assessment law no longer requires qualified environmental assessment institutions to prepare the environmental impact statement (table) of construction projects, and stipulates that the construction unit can entrust technical units to prepare the environmental impact statement (table) for it. If it has the corresponding technical ability, it can also prepare it by itself, which is conducive to stimulating market vitality and improving the technical service level and service awareness of environmental assessment through fuller market competition, It is conducive to reducing the burden on enterprises and promoting the development of the real economy
strengthen the law and implement the "double punishment system" for units and personnel.
the Ministry of ecological environment stressed that the cancellation of EIA qualification does not mean that the EIA management has been relaxed. On the contrary, the environmental impact assessment law has made stricter provisions on supervision, management and investigation, giving ecological and environmental departments at all levels a more powerful regulatory weapon. For example, the law will be greatly strengthened and the "double punishment system" for units and personnel will be implemented. If there are serious quality problems in the environmental assessment documents, the construction unit shall be fined 500000 to 200000 yuan, and its relevant personnel shall be fined 50000 to 200000 yuan; The amount of fines for technical units shall be increased from 1-3 times to 3-5 times, and the illegal income shall be confiscated. If the circumstances are serious, it is forbidden to engage in business; The staffing staff will be punished by banning employment for five years, and those who constitute a crime will also be investigated for criminal responsibility, and will be banned from employment for life. Refine the specific situation of "serious quality problems" in the environmental impact report (table), and make the standard more clear, which is conducive to the special supervision of the fixtures of gabentler Sigri in the ecological environment departments at all levels
the Ministry of ecological environment said that the clues of the problems transferred to the environmental assessment agency this time are explained in 6 The sample recycling device has given a clear signal, and the number of assembly lines has also been reduced, that is, the environmental assessment management has not been relaxed after the revision of the environmental assessment method, the standardized management of the environmental assessment industry will be further strengthened, and the environmental assessment institutions and their staff will be strictly supervised
