Self Monitoring is the best Monitoring
U.P. Pollution Control Board has initiated Self Declaration of Dust Control Audit by dust generating projects like building, roads, infrastructure, area development, industrial constructions and construction of common facilities etc. The vision is to institutionalize the self monitoring regime for control of air pollution.
The Self Declaration of Dust Control Audit in the format designed by UPPCB includes mandatory and desirable actions to be taken up for control of dust. This will guide the Project Proponents for control of dust on one hand and facilitate the effective compliance of the environmental norms on the other. The objective of this audit is to motivate the Project Proponents for control of dust by self auditing and ensure improvements by periodical audits. The safeguard has been provided that the self declaration shall not be used for any enforcement purpose. It is a guideline for the Project Proponents to take up necessary steps for control of dust beforehand and improve the status of compliance.
