As well as an important basis for accounting for actual emissions, it is the main basis for enterprises to self-certify and abide by the law. It is also an important inspection content and law enforcement basis for environmental protection departments to verify that enterprises meet emission standards and determine that enterprises discharge pollutants according to certificates.The information disclosure system is the basis and important means to strengthen the awareness of enterprises to discharge pollutants based on certificates, to guide public opinion supervision, and to form a common supervision atmosphere.
