Recusal Principle Added into EIA Review Committee Organic Regulationsline分享列印本頁
:::

Due to organizational transformation and amendments to the Environmental Impact Assessment Enforcement Rules, the Organic Regulations of the Environmental Impact Assessment Review Committee was also amended, and the principle of recusal was added.

Pursuant to Article 3 Paragraph 3 of the Environmental Impact Assessment Act, on 30 June 1995 the EPA promulgated the Organic Regulations of the Environmental Impact Assessment Review Committee. These regulations have been revised five times since then, in accordance with actual needs.

On 3 July 2015 the EPA amended the Environmental Impact Assessment Enforcement Rules by adding Article 5-1 which stipulates that the Environmental Impact Assessment Review Committee should adopt the principle of recusal not only according to the provisions of the Environmental Impact Assessment Act, but also according to those of the Administrative Procedural Act. In addition, when counting the number of committee members attending the EIA review meetings, those considered recused will not be counted as present.
