e-Approval System for Factory Environmental Permits Makes the Review Process Greener

On August 12, the Department of Environmental Protection of Taoyuan City Government (TYDEP) hosted a “Training Seminar on Operation of the e-Approval System for Factory Environmental Permits” at the B2 auditorium of Taoyuan City Hall. Around 155 business and environmental permit agents within Taoyuan City were invited to take part in the seminar. The e-approval system can be used when applying for new factory permits or a change of registration instead of having to spend time and money on corresponding with the relevant agencies. The reduction of approval times to 3 days or less also streamlines the application process for businesses.


According to TYDEP Director-General Li-teh Lu, 847 queries on environmental protection laws, applications for factory permits, and change of registration have been received since March 2020. These included 749 written applications and 98 applications through the e-system, or 11.6% of all queries.  Monthly usage rates have increased from 1.9% in March to 24.6% by July, a clear sign that businesses are increasingly adopting the system. In addition to promoting the convenience of the system, the training seminar was also used to collect user feedback over the last six months as a guide for future adjustments. This will help the e-Approval System for Factory Environmental Permits become a business-friendly application platform that offers the best speed, convenience, and accuracy.


To promote green, paperless, fast, and convenient services, the training seminar showed more businesses how to use the e-approval system. Discussions on the day also produced suggestions on how TYDEP can expand and streamline the system’s application and processing times. The establishment of an online platform for accelerated delivery of documentation and elimination of unnecessary travel makes the entire approval process more environmentally friendly.
