Adhere to the high position, promote and emphasize the "four in place"

Guangdong Province has a wide range of fixed pollution sources, with the largest total number in the country, and it is the province with the heaviest task of full coverage of sewage permits. The Guangdong Provincial Party Committee and the Guangdong Provincial Government attach great importance to the work of pollutant discharge permits. At the beginning of this year, the provincial party committee secretary and provincial governor jointly issued Provincial pollution Prevention and Control Battle Command No. 1 2020, which was regarded as one of the important tasks in the decisive battle of tackling pollution. The 2020 teleconference on eco-environmental protection in the province requires the linkage of provinces and cities and the interaction of departments to achieve the "four places" of propaganda and guidance, assistance and guidance, clean-up and rectification, and supervision and law enforcement. The leaders of the provinces in charge have also made important instructions on the work related to pollution discharge permits for many times, and have made special arrangements for the work of full coverage of pollution discharge permits.

The Provincial Department of Ecological Environment has set up a leading group for the implementation of the pollution discharge permit system headed by the director, and established a guarantee mechanism for the full coverage of pollution discharge permits for clean-up and rectification of fixed pollution sources. the leaders of the department formed three guarantee groups to guide 21 prefectures and cities in the province, and went to the front line for on-site supervision many times to coordinate and solve local difficult problems and implement tasks in various stages in an orderly and effective manner. The leaders of many prefectures and municipal governments made special research plans, and the main responsible comrades of the ecological and environmental departments of various prefectures and cities also took the lead in "supervising the war," and strengthened their linkage with a number of local departments, actively mobilized grass-roots forces, and made all-out efforts to promote the registration of pollutant discharge permits.

The Provincial Department of Ecological Environment organized a video conference on the coordination and promotion of full coverage of pollutant discharge permits in the province.

The Provincial Department of Ecological Environment went to Shenzhen to investigate and supervise the work of pollutant discharge permits.

The provincial technical team went to Zhuhai to provide "one-to-one" technical assistance.

Widely publicize and launch to win social support

In order to promote the smooth development of the work of pollutant discharge permits, since the beginning of this year, the Provincial Department of Ecological Environment has successively issued the "Circular on the full implementation of the Registration of pollution discharge permits in 2020" and "A letter to pollutant discharge Units." the relevant requirements for the work of pollutant discharge permits have been clearly defined to the pollutant discharge units of the whole province. In addition, the media or platforms such as the public network of Guangdong Ecological Environment Department, Wechat official account of "Guangdong Ecological Environment", Sina Weibo of "South Guangdong Green Voice", and "Yue Shang Tong APP" have widely publicized the regulations and policies of sewage discharge permits, as well as the latest progress, experiences and practices of pollution discharge permits in various parts of the province, which have effectively enhanced the understanding and support of the whole society for the full coverage of sewage discharge permits.

Help grass-roots work experts to form a group to help

As the application and issuance of pollutant discharge permits is highly technical, the Provincial Department of Ecological Environment has specially organized three technical support units to help 21 prefectures and cities with "one city, one policy" and key cities, and set up QQ groups for grass-roots ecological and environmental departments and third-party technical institutions, which provide strong technical support for local pollution discharge permit work. Organize 4 phases of video training on pollutant discharge permit management in the province.

In addition, in order to meet the needs of COVID-19 's epidemic prevention and control, ecological and environmental departments at all levels in the province have also actively used information means, adopting video work meetings, online video classes, live training, and other ways, to increase training and guidance for grass-roots staff and enterprise personnel. By establishing the dispatching notification mechanism, studying and judging the situation in time, analyzing the problems and finding the causes, and adopting the methods of telephone, short message coordination and on-site investigation and supervision according to local conditions, the existing problems can be solved in time. According to incomplete statistics, there are more than 20,000 "point-to-point" on-site tutoring in various parts of the province, more than 60,000 "one-on-one" door-to-door guidance, and more than 1,000 centralized training (cloud classes, video training, live broadcasts, etc.), opening up a new path for promoting full coverage on schedule during the epidemic prevention and control period.

Strictly enforce the quality red line law enforcement

Time is tight and the task is heavy, but the quality red line cannot be loosened. While organizing various localities to speed up the promotion of full coverage of pollution discharge permits, the Provincial Department of Ecological Environment requires the examination and issuance departments at all levels to strengthen examination and strict checks, and standardize the examination and issuance of pollution discharge permits in accordance with the law. At the same time, continue to organize spot checks and reviews, focusing on checking the quality of pollutant discharge permits and the quality of pollutant discharge registration forms, timely feedback on the results of spot checks, and timely improvement and correction in prefectures and cities, which effectively ensures the compliance of the relevant work.

At the same time, various parts of the province have also strengthened the communication and linkage between the inspection and development department and the law enforcement department. The Provincial Department of Ecological Environment has incorporated law enforcement supervision into the training content of the management of pollution discharge permits in the province; the ecological environment departments of various prefectures and cities have listed the inspection of law enforcement of pollution discharge permits as the main task of annual law enforcement, and strengthen supervision, law enforcement and on-site inspection to severely crack down on unlicensed pollutant discharge, and force and promote pollutant discharge units to take the initiative to implement the responsibility of the main body of application for registration of pollution discharge permits.

 

 

The ecological and environmental department and the technical team went to the pollutant discharge enterprise to carry out on-site guidance.
