Waste Flow Report to Be Extended to Supermarkets and Megamarkets On 16 February 2017 the EPA preannounced the draft amendments to the Type, Scope and Scale of Businesses Required to Submit Water Pollution Control Measures. The purpose of the current amendments is to align with the draft amendments to the Water Pollution Control Measures and Permit Application Review Management Regulations, which divide applicants into three categories─ namely, special permit, general permit, and simple permit ─to substantiate the implementation of appropriate practice management. The threshold for a general permit has been simplified, and businesses that are serious offenders are added as subjects required to submit their water pollution control measures. The major amendments are as follows: 1. In accordance with Article 14-1 Paragraph 1 of the Water Pollution Control Act, businesses which have been designated and announced by the central competent authorities to disclose information on effluent discharge volumes and concentrations of pollutants should submit water pollution control measures ahead of other businesses. 2. Businesses that are required to submit water pollution control measures include: those whose daily output of wastewater exceeds 10,000 m3, or whose daily output of wastewater exceeds 100 m3 but contains hazardous substances. In addition, businesses which have violated the Water Pollution Control Act and have been ordered to cease operations or businesses, have committed serious offenses, or have previously falsified report records also fall into this category. 3. Subjects listed on items 5-9 and 11-12 will be exempt from the need to submit water pollution control measures due to the simple nature of their wastewater and their need for a simple permit. 4. Hospitals and medical institutions are classified as businesses that require the general permit. Hence, whether water pollution control measures are required should be decided by the quantity and content of their wastewater.
