Proposed Revisions of the Self Monitoring Report (SMR) and Industrial Ecowatch Rating System (IERS) Guidelines and their Procedural Manuals

The Environment Committee led by its Co-Chairman Jesus G. Reyes attended the public consultation on the revised Guidelines and Procedural Manuals on Industrial Ecowatch System and Self Monitoring Report (SMR) last August 27, 2014 at the Sulu Riviera Hotel, Quezon City. During the consultation, the members of the committee voiced their concerns on the enormity of data being requested from industry. They also suggested that given the time and resources spent for preparing the SMR, It was also recommended that DNER-EMB come up with a protocol on the consolidation, analysis and utilization of data submitted.

The concerns of the industry were formally transmitted to DENR- EMB through a position paper   highlighting the general and specific comments on the proposed   guidelines and Department Administrative Orders (DAO). (see attached)
