And requires 113 steel companies have issued certificates to limit production of steel. Shougang Mining Corporation and other 12 steel companies have been issued for the implementation of administrative penalties.
In accordance with relevant requirements, in contrast to the environmental standards newly promulgated and implemented by the State and the province in recent years, our province has implemented the steel industry for a limited period of time to manage and upgrade the standards. Only after the iron and steel enterprise completes the task of upgrading the standard and meets the acceptance criteria of the environmental protection department, can it obtain a permit for discharge.
The circular pointed out that if there is any violation of the “Procedures for Hebei Province’s Permitting Pollution Permits Management,” the unauthorized establishment or operation of illegal production capacity, and the total discharge of pollutants exceeds the control targets, the issuing authority shall revoke the law in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Administrative Permit Law.

The deadline for rectification shall not exceed 3 months, and the production limit shall be calculated at 50% of the normal production capacity.
