Henan 150,000 units all fixed pollution sources to complete the license registration this year
Attention to pollutant discharge units! This year, it is necessary to achieve full coverage of pollutant discharge permits for fixed pollution sources, and the issuance and registration work has been fully carried out.
On March 19, the reporter learned from the Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment that, according to the requirements for the comprehensive establishment of a pollutant discharge permit system, all industry pollutant discharge units included in the "Classified Management Directory of Pollutant Discharge Permits for Fixed Pollution Sources" (2019 Edition) should, within the specified time limit, Fill in the application form for the pollutant discharge permit or the pollutant discharge registration form on the National Discharge Permit Management Information Platform (http://permit.mee.gov.cn). The pollutant discharge permit will be the "ID card" that each pollutant discharge unit must hold, and it is the only administrative license for the pollutant discharge behavior of enterprises and institutions during the production and operation period.
"This work involves a large area, and the preliminary investigation shows that there are more than 150,000 pollutant discharge units involved in Henan." Ding Xiaoyang, director of the Environmental Assessment and Emission Management Office of the Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, said that the implementation of the pollutant discharge permit management system in accordance with the law is an important part of the reform of the ecological civilization system of the Party Central Committee and the State Council and the construction of a modern environmental governance system. It is also the central work of reforming and improving the management system of fixed pollution sources. According to the implementation plan issued by the State Council, my country will establish an environmental management system for fixed pollution sources with the pollutant discharge permit system as the core, implement "one-certificate" management for fixed pollution sources, and achieve full coverage by 2020, realizing "approving an industry, cleaning up an industry, standardizing an industry, and meeting standards.", which will lay a solid foundation for improving environmental quality and winning the tough battle of pollution prevention and control.
According to the arrangement, at the beginning of the year, the Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment issued an announcement and notice to fully deploy and do a good job in cleaning up, rectifying and issuing permits for pollutant discharge permits this year. Before April 30, complete the cleaning and rectification of pollutant discharge permits for fixed pollution sources in 33 industries; before September 30, basically complete the issuance and registration of all fixed pollution source pollutant discharge permits. The ecological environment department with the authority to issue and issue shall, in accordance with regulations and requirements, review the application materials of pollutant discharge units that implement key management and simplified management on the Internet platform, and issue pollutant discharge permits with unified national codes; After filling in the registration form, the system automatically generates the registration number and receipt immediately.
In order to do this work well, the province's ecological environment system will make more fuss about services, take "one-to-one" and "point-to-point" methods to provide assistance and guidance when necessary, and do a good job of answering questions and technical support around the clock.
"The implementation of the pollutant discharge permit system will bring positive changes to the environmental management of fixed pollution sources." Ding Xiaoyang said that the pollutant discharge permit system will also be connected with the EIA system and integrated with the total amount control system, and finally form a new situation of environmental management of "EIA management access, permission to manage pollutant discharge, and implementation of law enforcement."
[Interpretation] New changes in pollution control ideas
What new changes will be brought to pollution control after the reform of the pollutant discharge permit system?
The person in charge pointed out that the biggest difference between the current pollutant discharge permit system and the previous one is that the government no longer conducts "paternalistic" and "nanny" supervision and control of enterprises, and allows the main body responsible for pollution control to return to the enterprise. Through the pollutant discharge permit, the main responsibility of the enterprise and the supervision responsibility of the management department are further clarified, and the transformation of enterprises from "I want to abide by the law" to "I want to abide by the law" is urged.
"It not only opens up the internal environmental management chain of the enterprise, but also opens up the supervision chain between the management departments." Ding Xiaoyang, director of the Environmental Assessment and Emission Management Office of the Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, said that on the one hand, enterprises must prove themselves to abide by the law and prove that their pollutant discharge behavior meets the requirements of the pollutant discharge permit. Through enterprises carrying out self-monitoring, establishing ledgers, regular reporting and information disclosure, it is conducive to urging enterprises to better implement the main responsibility of corporate environmental protection. On the other hand, the new pollutant discharge permit system makes environmental law enforcement more refined and convenient, which is conducive to standardizing supervision and law enforcement. When the ecological environment law enforcement personnel carry out the on-site inspection of the pollutant discharge unit, as long as they scan the QR code on the copy, the production information, pollutant discharge information, execution standards, monitoring requirements, sewage outlet location, discharge destination, etc. of the enterprise will be displayed immediately.
According to reports, the new pollutant discharge permit system integrates and connects the relevant systems for environmental management of fixed pollution sources, which can greatly reduce the burden on enterprises and institutions pollutant discharge units, give pollutant discharge units clear and stable pollution discharge control requirements and expectations, and help promote the formation of a fair and standardized environment. Law enforcement and law-abiding order.
