STP announces the release of its recently updated EHS audit protocol for Vietnam

Latest EHS Regulations Updates Assist Companies to Achieve EHS Compliance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, May 2, 2022 / -- Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are now also prepared by Antea Group in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific applications for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, Antea Group has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP maintains leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

Section 1.0 – General Environmental
Minor revisions to this protocol section have been made to specify orders and procedures for appraisal and approval of plans for environmental renovation and restoration for entities as amended in Article 5 of Decree No.19/2015/ND-CP and Article 2 of Decree No. 40/2019/ND-CP.

Section 2.0 – Air Emissions
Subsection 1 – Air Quality Performance/Emission Standards was updated to reference QCVN 51:2017/BTNMT
National Technical Regulation on Emission for Steel Industry, which replaces the 2013 version; the content was not otherwise changed.

Section 3.0 – Water and Wastewater Management Subsection 1 – Wastewater Treatment (Including Permitting, Facility, Personnel, Reporting, and Recordkeeping) was updated to reference QCVN 52:2017/BTNMT National Technical Regulation on Wastewater of Steel Industry, which replaces the 2013 version; the content was not otherwise changed.

Section 9.0 – Asbestos

on Development of Vietnam’s Construction Material Industry through 2020, with a Vision Toward 2030, which included the aim to prohibit the use of amphibole asbestos fibers (brown and green asbestos) in roofing panel production, has been repealed. There is currently no specific asbestos-related legislation in Vietnam.
