The hottest environmental monitoring market is not

  • Detail

Not long ago, the Ministry of environmental protection, jointly with the national development and Reform Commission, issued the guiding opinions on strengthening the construction of enterprise environmental credit system, which clearly proposed that the environmental protection department should establish and improve the credit records of environmental monitoring institutions, severely crack down on dishonesty and fraud, and establish a blacklist system. This will have a far-reaching impact on regulating the environmental monitoring market

the marketization of environmental monitoring has been advancing rapidly in recent years. A large number of third-party monitoring institutions and third-party operation service companies have emerged, which has played a positive role in accelerating the transformation of the government's environmental protection functions and improving the efficiency of environmental monitoring. However, it is also common to practice fraud, falsify or limit the experimental power to forge monitoring data. Due to the lack of relevant laws and regulations and the absence of supervision, the corresponding punishment was not in place in time, which hindered the healthy development of the monitoring market

environmental monitoring is by no means a profiteering industry. Before the opening of the market, the normal operation of monitoring stations directly under the environmental protection system mainly depended on financial allocations. The "three Simultaneities" acceptance monitoring and other incomes have only made up for the funding gap, or solved some fixed asset investment funds. On the whole, life is tight. After opening up the monitoring market, environmental testing companies tend to pursue profits. At present, many places implement the charging standard formulated around 2000. This standard is calculated according to the incomplete cost, without considering the factors such as laboratory infrastructure, equipment purchase depreciation, vehicle operation, etc., and the overall price is low. If we charge according to this standard, there are not many waste plastic recycling plants in the testing company, which is basically unprofitable. However, in order to occupy the market, competitors press down on each other's prices. The final bid winning price is usually very low, so it is impossible to complete the normal monitoring task, let alone maintain a reasonable profit. If the funds are insufficient, the monitoring service quality will be greatly reduced

the opening of the environmental monitoring market has activated investment, but the situation is not optimistic after a large number of social funds pour in. First, the business volume has not been fully released, and the market plate is not as large as expected; Second, the charge is not high and the profit is abnormally low; Third, the competition is quite fierce, and the contradiction between more monks and less monks is prominent; Fourth, the monitoring technology has high requirements and the company's management risk is high. After twoorthree years of operation, some small companies have started to retreat, and some large-scale companies have been dragged down by vicious competition, and their growth is also very difficult. In such a situation, there is a great possibility of anomie in competition, and it is urgent to strengthen market supervision

however, there is a lack of relevant laws and regulations on administrative penalties for breach of trust and violation of laws of testing institutions. Article 55 of the detailed rules for the implementation of the Metrology Law revised in 2014 stipulates that "they shall be ordered to stop the inspection and may also be fined less than 1000 yuan". Obviously, the punishment has lagged behind the regulatory needs for further processing of relevant products by downstream product enterprises. The certification and accreditation regulations promulgated in 2003 set up administrative penalty provisions for the illegal acts of laboratories engaging in testing activities without authorization or beyond the designated business scope, "order correction, impose a fine of more than 100000 yuan but less than 500000 yuan, and confiscate the illegal gains if any". However, the illegal subjects are only limited to the laboratories related to certification, and the above illegal acts are only subject to certain economic penalties or ordered to rectify. The punishment is not strong enough to deter the non-performing testing institutions from disrupting the market with false data or reports. The new environmental protection law has made punishment provisions for the staff of administrative institutions to tamper with or forge monitoring data, but the punishment provisions for social institutions are vague and principled. Socialized monitoring is a new thing. It is not surprising that there are problems in management. The construction of credit system just makes up for the blank

the construction of credit system is the trump card for supervising environmental testing companies. For qualified testing companies, credit evaluation is a powerful tool for business development; For speculators, credit evaluation can play a role in eliminating and checking. What effect should the strict credit system achieve? It is to expose fraud in a timely manner and include relevant enterprises in the blacklist of dishonesty. Measures such as canceling government procurement qualification or not granting credit loans, suspending or revoking measurement certification certificates were taken to deal with them seriously, resulting in a high-pressure situation that the cost of breaking the promise is too high and dare not break the promise

environmental testing companies should be strictly controlled. Whatever the purpose of investment, as long as it meets the requirements of national laws and regulations, it should be encouraged to enter the environmental monitoring market and alleviate the current shortage of monitoring resources. However, once engaged in this cause, it must be scientific, rigorous and accurate, and work in full accordance with laws, regulations and market rules. The monitoring data shall not be mixed with sand. If there is an irreconcilable contradiction between commercial profit and scientific spirit, 5 gold tool torque testing equipment has its unique product characteristics: these companies must be eliminated

at present, the biggest risk is that there is no institution to supervise the work quality of social testing companies. In the absence of fair supervision, the owner is likely to reach some tacit understanding with the testing company. For environmental monitoring, we must not let it go during and after the event. The longer the absence of supervision, the more problems will accumulate. At present, it is urgent to clarify the regulatory body of social testing companies and their working methods

it is difficult for social testing institutions to survive. The government and environmental protection departments need to cultivate the market to help them develop healthily. Many enterprises and institutions need to carry out self-test. If they invest by themselves, the construction cycle is long and the cost is high, and it is more economical and convenient to purchase socialized testing services. This requires the environmental protection department to strengthen policy guidance and administrative regulation. On the one hand, the monitoring organization should have something to do; On the other hand, we should supervise them to do things well to ensure the smooth and orderly operation of the market

the construction of credit system is related to the healthy development of the industry. It is urgent to improve relevant construction contents as soon as possible to objectively reflect the strength, performance and integrity level of the environmental testing company. In particular, it is necessary to strengthen the application of credit evaluation results, formulate relevant management systems, and clarify evaluation standards, evaluation information sources, evaluation procedures, and disciplinary measures for dishonesty
