Key FindingsView the policy document
The Environmental Protection and Management Order is the main environmental law in Brunei, it makes provisions for the administration, powers, offences and penalties regarding to the environmental management, monitoring, protection, control and rehabilitation. The primary driver for this policy was environmental. Under this order, activities deemed to have environmental impacts and identified as Prescribed Activities are required to submit Written Notification, together with Environmental Impact Assessments and/or Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan, to the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation for approval prior to the commencement of such activities (Ministry of Finance and Economy, Government of Brunei Darussalam, 2020). The administration of this Act falls under the Minister responsible for environmental protection and management matter and the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation. There was insufficient evidence available to assess this policy at the time of the assessment.
