This project responds to the second notice of the draft Environmental Testing and Analysis Act, and cooperates with matters needing attention in the legal production of central administrative agencies. When drafting a law, the preparatory work about the laws and regulations should be planned and implemented together. The release will be completed within six months after the announcement.
Regarding the legal system, nine sub-law drafts had been proposed that should be research first and were approved by Environmental Analysis Laboratory, and the nine sub-law drafts had been proposed successively with complete articles. Related explanations are as follows: 1. "Environmental Testing and Analysis Organization Grading Application Regulations" focuses on the rights and obligations of different grades laboratories, and could create an incentive for laboratories and a healthy competitive environment to upgrade their grades. 2.

Regarding the interview execution, a total of 124 units' feedback on Environmental Testing and Analysis Act and related sub-law had been collected through questionnaire and online discussion. Among them, about 78.2% are the opinions raised by testing organization, and they are more concentrated in Chapter 2 Testing Management and Chapter 5 Penalties. The opinions raised by local authority are about 14.5%, with emphasis on Chapter 2 and Chapter 5. Opinions of business unit and public or private premises are about 6.4% which only focus on Chapter 3 Designated Testing Items and Reporting Management. Only 0.9% opinions were raised by the guild.
Regarding administrative support, this project had assisted in 10 study meetings of stakeholder on Environmental Testing and Analysis Act, 9 consultation meetings of experts and scholars on Environmental Testing and Analysis Act and its sub-law, and 12 hours of professional legal consultation. The feedback that collected at each meeting is used as a reference for our team to implement the research and development of legal progress.
