In recent years, Asian countries and regions have established and implemented a variety of environmental regulations against the backdrop of increasingly serious environmental problems. For example, such regulations cover the following domains:

  • Risk assessment of chemical substances
  • Control of chemicals in products (CiP)
  • Import of hazardous substances
  • Biocides
  • Extended producer responsibility (EPR) for e-wastes and packaging materials
  • Cells and batteries
  • Carbon tax/pricing
  • Ozone-depleting substances
  • Energy efficiency labels, minimum energy performance standards (MEPS)
  • Pollution control (water, air, soil)
  • Occupational health and safety
  • CSR

Though some of these regulations are internationally harmonized, namely aligned with rules in EU and the United States, many other regulations are unique to each country/region. However, the wide variety of languages used in these countries/regions makes it difficult to keep up with the latest environmental regulatory information in Asia.

With a population of over 4.5 billion, emerging Asia is an attractive market for companies all over the world. In order to facilitate business in this huge market, it is becoming increasingly important to accurately grasp the latest environmental regulations in this area and to comply with them.

Enviliance was created as a powerful tool to address this issue. We at EnviX, as an environmental consulting firm originating from Japan, have delivered a similar information service to more than 1,000 global companies in Japan and other countries.

Dear Enviliance Website Visitors,

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend the services of Enviliance to you.

EnviX Ltd. and I have worked together since 2010, where I have helped EnviX provide information and deepen understanding of environmental regulations in Thailand. It is already more than 10 years and I have enjoyed my time working with EnviX. I earnestly hope that better understanding of regulations and requirements will lead to better compliance, and eventually to less pollution and better environmental quality. This is the main objective of our work at the Pollution Control Department, Thailand.

During the past 10 years, I have provided EnviX with the latest information in Thailand. However, I also have obtained comprehensive, updated and the latest information about regulations in many other countries through Envix, which have helped my work. When I got to know that EnviX would release their regulatory information service in English, Enviliance, to reach even more audiences across the globe, I felt very happy because this kind of service would be no longer exclusive to Japanese people.

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Enviliance to you. Visiting this website will surely give you an advantage of understanding regulations in major economies, which will surely beneficial to your business in the global competition.

Best wishes,

Chayawee Wangcharoenrung

From Chang Miao Ph.D.
Associate professor School of Environment, Tsinghua University, China

Enviliance, published and operated by EnviX, Ltd., provides accurate and timely information on the latest trends in environmental regulations in Asian countries including China. It should be of great help to international companies that are required to comply with various environmental regulations, which are frequently revised and strengthened.

Particularly, the Enviliance covers a vast amount of information on laws and regulations in China, where regulations are being increasingly tightened and expanded not only at the national level but also at the local level. Enviliance thus must be a powerful and useful tool for non-Chinese business entities that find it difficult to keep up with such changes.

The Division of Environmental Management & Policy, School of Environment, Tsinghua University, where I work, is supporting national and local governments to formulate environmental laws and regulations in China. I hope that Enviliance will play an important role in helping many companies in Asia, Europe and the United States to understand Chinese environmental laws and regulations.

I also believe that Enviliance will be a valuable tool not only for businesses, but also for academic researchers in the field of environmental policy and regulation, as it provides a single source of information on Asian countries where regulatory information is issued in a variety of languages. From the perspective of building a carbon-neutral and sustainable society in the future, academic research targeting the Asian region, which has the world’s largest population, will become increasingly important. I have high expectations for Enviliance to serve as one of strong information sources for such research.

From Mr. Hoang Van Vy
Deputy Director of Northern Environmental Protection Bureau,
Vietnam Environment Administration

I’m very glad to recommend Enviliance to you.

I have exchanged lots of information with EnviX consultant team for this several years. All of EnviX staff have high expertise and much knowledge in the field of environmental regulations of Asian countries, including ASEAN, East Asia and South Asia. So, I was very excited when I knew that EnviX developed Enviliance.

In these several years, the laws and regulations on environmental management of Vietnam have been revised in overall because environmental pollution is becoming very serious due to complicated activities of manufacturing and trading companies. Therefore, propagation and updating of environmental regulations to organizations, enterprises and community play a really important role.

From what I’ve seen, Enviliance is an easy-to-understand guide to the complexities of Asian environmental regulations and compactly conveys the key points. The website will bring to you promptly updated information of regulations and policies on environment and related fields, in many developing countries in Asia region. It will beneficial to your globally business expansion. Once again, I highly recommend Enviliance to you.
