APPENDIX 3

CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF TRADE VILLAGES BY LEVELS OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION
 (Issued together with the Circular No. 31/2016/TT-BTNMT of the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment dated October 14, 2016)

Evaluation and classification of level of environmental pollution at each trade village shall be carried out according to the following steps:

Step 1: Identify the typical activity of each trade village (specific activities listed in the Table 2.1).

Step 2: Identify parameters of typical pollutants to be at least analyzed in each trade village, based on its typical activities (specified at the Table 2.1).

Step 3: Collect and analyze samples of environmental components by using typical environmental pollutant parameters defined in the Table 2.1.

Depending on availability of funds, collection and analysis of samples can be carried out on a quarterly basis, or in a specified point of time in March, June, September or December of the given year. In case funds are limited, collection and analysis of samples must be carried out on biannual basis: the first occurring at the peak of dry season and the second occurring at the peak of rainy season. If funds are sufficient for only 01 time of sample collection and analysis, such activity must be carried out in the dry season or the peak production period in a given year.

Measurement and collection of samples must adhere to the following principles:

- Surface water samples are collected at the centre of pond, lake, canal or channel, etc. within the precincts of the trade village receiving industrial wastewater. Sample collection points should be typical for surface water environment quality of the entire trade village, including at least one point which is designated as the ultimate discharge of effluent wastewater into the receiving surrounding environment (such as canals, channels, ponds, lakes, rivers and streams, etc.) for the entire region where the trade village is located.

- Measurement and collection of samples of ambient air are carried out in the midst of production sites, including at least one point located in the area towards which the wind is blowing within the precincts of trade village.  

- Soil samples are collected from unpaved ground in the proximity of production sites.

Step 4: Calculate pollution coefficient A according to the following formula as the basis for classification of levels of environmental pollution occurring within trade villages.

Formula for calculating pollution coefficient A:

Where:

A: Environmental pollution coefficient of trade village, calculated according to typical pollution parameters.

C1, C2... Cn: Value of parameters of typical pollutants existing in the surrounding environment (defined in the Table 2.1), which is averaged for sample collection times within a given year.   

Cq1, Cq2 ... Cqn: Threshold value of the said parameters provided for by respective national technical regulations on quality of the surrounding environment.

n: Number of typical pollutant parameters (defined according to the Table 2.1)

Step 5: Classify levels of environmental pollution occurring within trade villages after calculation of the pollution coefficient A according to the Table 2.2 given hereunder.
