SMM News: on July 11, Li Ganjie, minister of ecological environment, presided over a ministerial meeting of the Ministry of Ecological Environment. To consider and adopt in principle the decision on abolishing and amending some regulations (hereinafter referred to as the "decision") the classified list of permits for pollution discharge from fixed pollution sources (2019 Edition) (hereinafter referred to as the "list") and the provisions on Safety permit procedures for Nuclear Power plants, Research reactors and Nuclear fuel cycle facilities (hereinafter referred to as the "provisions").

The meeting pointed out: the CPC Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the clean-up of laws and regulations, and arrangements have been made many times since the 18th CPC National Congress. The "decision" on going out of Taiwan is a practical action to implement the requirements of the General Office of the State Council on cleaning up laws and regulations, rules, normative documents, and certification matters for cleaning up the ecological environment. It is necessary to fully understand that timely clean-up of laws and regulations is an objective requirement and an important measure for safeguarding the unity of the legal system and the smooth flow of government orders, promoting administration according to law, conscientiously implementing the responsibility of building a government under the rule of law, and continuously and deeply promoting the clean-up of laws and regulations. With regard to the regulations and normative documents that need to be revised in the future, it is necessary to speed up the study and formulation of revised plans to ensure that the task of cleaning up is put into practice.

The meeting held that the "list" is an important part of the pollution discharge permit system and a basic document for promoting the step-by-step implementation and fine management of pollution discharge permits. As a specific measure to implement the State Council's "implementation Plan for controlling Pollutant discharge permit system", the revision of the list should be scientific and rigorous, focus on the key tasks of pollution prevention and control around the goal of full coverage of environmental management of fixed pollution sources, and earnestly enhance science, pertinence, and effectiveness. It is necessary to do a good job of publicity and interpretation, so that local ecological and environmental departments, sewage discharge units and the public can timely and accurately understand the new management requirements, and ensure that understanding is in place and implementation is effective. In accordance with the two "two-step" requirements of "pilot first, then push away," issue certificates first, and then put in place, "on the basis of pilot work in key areas, we should comprehensively implement the clean-up and rectification of pollution permits for fixed pollution sources throughout the country, and realize the" one certificate "management of fixed pollution sources. It is necessary to continuously follow up and pay attention to the implementation and effect of the "list", sort out and sum up in time, and timely revise the problems, so as to ensure that the pollution discharge permit management is comprehensive, scientific, and efficient.

The meeting stressed that nuclear safety is an important part of national security, and it is necessary to further raise the political position, strengthen awareness of suffering, adhere to the concept of "strict caution and meticulous" work, and strictly achieve "two zero tolerance," that is, zero tolerance for fraud, zero tolerance for illegal operations, and implementation of all requirements for nuclear safety supervision. The implementation of the safety licensing system for civil nuclear facilities is an important means for the Ministry of Ecology and Environment to carry out nuclear safety supervision in accordance with the law. The formulation of "regulations" is a specific measure to implement the requirements of the reform of nuclear safety law and "release service". It is of great significance to standardize the safety licensing procedures for nuclear power plants, research reactors and nuclear fuel cycle facilities, ensure the legality and fairness of administrative licensing, and improve the standardization level of nuclear safety supervision. The regulations are not only the guide for guiding the operating unit to apply for the license, but also the basis for the regulatory authorities to accept the license, review, supervise and implement the license. It is necessary to do a good job in the propaganda, interpretation, and training of the "regulations," and strictly and standardly do a good job in nuclear safety supervision and licensing. It is necessary to constantly summarize and feedback, optimize and improve, and continue to do a good job in the revision of the standard system of the supporting laws and regulations of the Nuclear Safety Law.
