China To Issue Two Environmental Measures To Support Enterprises To Commence Reoperation

Recently, the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) announced that it would issue two measures to support enterprises to go back to operation. One is to exempt some projects from environmental assessment procedures, expand the number of places where a pilot regulatory program on environmental assessment is enforced, and improve service in relation to environmental assessment, so as to facilitate commencement of construction projects. And another measure is to exempt some enterprises from on-site environmental inspections organized by government and put them under non-site monitoring.
