3. Impact on businesses that discharge industrial waste in violation of the Waste Management Law

1.         Penalties

Penalties including penal servitude or fines should be imposed for violation of the Waste Management Law. In case of penalty provision against employers and employees, the company is to be penalized. Thus, it is important for employees to strictly follow the law.

2.         Impacts on business management

When a business that generated industrial waste appoints/subcontracts a company for waste treatment/recycling but the waste is not treated according to the legal requirements, the responsible companies will be subjected to measures that may be officially announced.

Such cases may not raise the costs but tarnish brand images.

3.         Published cases

In case of large-scale illegal waste dumping, the name of the business discharging industrial waste should be publicly announced in the media.
