Notification on late submission of application for renewal of Environmental Clearance (EC)
Published on: 11-Jul-2022

This is to inform our valued applicants that the National Environment Commission Secretariat (NECS) has been waiving off penalty for late submission of EC renewal applications considering the COVID-19 pandemic measures. 

However, with further relaxation of Covid-19 pandemic measures, the NECS would like to notify all EC holders that the imposition of penalty for late submission of EC renewal application will be reinstated with effect from August 01, 2022 in accordance with the Environmental Assessment Act 2000 and Regulation for Environmental Clearance of Projects 2016. 

Therefore, the NECS would like to advise all concerned EC holders to kindly process the renewal application at least three months prior to the expiry of your EC along with other prerequisite documents as stipulated in your erstwhile EC.

Should you require any clarifications, kindly contact the Environment Assessment and Compliance Division of NECS at 02-331160.
