EMB Update: Comparison of DAO 2016-08 General Effluent Standards of 2016 with DAO 1990-35

Dear Valued Client,

As a follow to our last update on DAO 2016-08 and for your appreciation, please find below Table 1 showing a comparison between DAO 1990-35 and the new DAO 2016-08. In summary, heavy metals have stricter standards while some conventional parameters such as pH range, TSS and surfactants are more lenient.

Table 2 presents the additional parameters in the new DAO which finds the inclusion of nutrients, other metals, fecal coliform, BTEX, TCE and pesticides.

Should you have questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

All the best,

EMB Update: DAO 2016-08 Water Quality Guidelines and General Effluent Standards of 2016

Dear Valued Clients,

The DENR has recently approved and issued DAO 2016-08 - Water Quality Guidelines and General Effluent Standards of 2016 which took effect yesterday, June 14, 2016.

Below are the salient points of DAO 2016-08:

·         Covers both Water Quality Guidelines (WQG) and General Effluent Standards (GES)

·         New parameters have been added and some parameters are more stringent that the previous DAO

·         In effect, DAO 1990-34 and 1997-23 relating to WQG are already repealed while DAO 1990-35 relating to Effluent Standards is modified

·          Coverage include: freshwaters, marine waters and groundwater

·         The DAO provides a list of significant effluent quality parameters per Sector (Note: parameters that are not on the list but are significant should still be included in the monitoring. Conversely, parameters that are not expected in a company’s material or waste streams may request for exclusion. The DAO provides the process for such request.)

·         The DAO has provision for a 5 year grace period to be able to comply with the GES, within which period, a moratorium is in effect which includes issuance of cease and desist and / or closure order, fines, and other penalties against establishment’s operations. Note however, that DAO 35 remain in effect for parameters that have more stringent requirements in the new GES.

We encourage you to read DAO 2016-08. You may email us to request for a copy.

Should you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime.

PNP Update - Announcement Re Application for Licenses of Manufacturers, Dealers and Purchasers of Controlled Chemicals

Dear Valued Clients,

Below is an extract of the original text message (emphasis added) of Col. Gongon (PNP-EMD) to SEIPI Members which we got from a generous client which we would like to share with you all (Note: Thanks and acknowledgement to the source).

We shall inform you once the PNP has officially released the IRR.

"In view of the impending implementation of the IRR on Controlled Chemicals, all stakeholders involved in the manufacturing, dealing or purchasing of controlled chemicals are encourage to submit their applications for license starting May 11, 2016. Though said proposed IRR is still due for approval and publication, the early submission of requirements stated therein will allow EMD personnel to process projected bulk applications so as to release it on time. Please be reminded that requirements, to include chemicals to be considered, must be based on the list provided by said IRR. Aside from all mandatory documentary requirements, all applicants are also encouraged to submit digital copy or file copy of each requirement in PDF format. This will facilitate immediate processing of applications. Draft IRR to include it annexes can be download through the link  (https://goo.gl/VoHqL8)  Your cooperation and support on this endeavor will not only facilitate early processing of applications but will also allow us to improve our processes and procedures.” - text message from Colonel Gongon of the PNP-EMD
