Working Paper on Emissions Monitoring Using CEMS

March 18, 2020

Self-monitoring got a boost when a direction issued by the CPCB on 15th February 2014 under Section 18(1)(b) of the Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 and the Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 mandated self-monitoring for all 17 (Red-Category) industries in India with a view to strengthen the monitoring mechanism for effective compliance, making the current system of compliance monitoring to focus more on self-monitoring through the installation of OCEMS, submission of the OCEMS data to the regulatory bodies, effective maintenance of the OCEMS without any tampering, and timely installation of the OCEMS—thereby addressing some of the gaps that existed previously.
