Unofficial English Translation of the Environmental Protection Law now Publicly Available

 

On May 13 the EU – China Environmental Governance Programme released an English version of the new ‘Environmental Protection Law’ (Approved by China NPC on April 24, 2014). The translation intends to provide international stakeholders a better understanding of the improvements being made to China’s environmental governance.



In April the EU – China Environmental Governance Programme took part in a seminar with the Ministry of Environmental Protection and members of the Standing Committee of China National People’s Congress (NPC) to explain key aspects of EU experience in environmental governance, such as information disclosure, public participation and access to justice in environmental matters.



This is an unofficial translation of the Environmental Protection Law of the People’s Republic of China (published on 24 April 2014), compiled by the EU – China Environmental Governance Programme for the convenience of international observers. The EU – China Environmental Governance Programme takes no liability for any errors in this translation. An official translation of the Law is expected to be published by the Chinese government in due course.
