Starting in 2017, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources of Vietnam plans to inspect projects that have a high potential for causing severe environmental pollution. The purpose of the inspections is to ensure that projects are adhering to the law. The Ministry will inspect to see if projects and business entities are complying with administrative and operating procedures and land use restrictions.
The Minister of Environment and Natural Resources, Trần Hồng Hà, issued Document No. 60, which orders local government leaders to collaborate in order to conduct these inspections. Specifically, the government will inspect industrial units that discharge 200cu.m or more of wastewater, with the exception of those units that were inspected in 2016. Some of the sectors that have been highlighted for inspection include: textile dyeing, metallurgy, production of chemicals, pulp paper, cassava, rubber, sugarcane, leather, and thermal power.
