Company Founded by CEnv Builds Service Offering in Myanmar
24 October 2018
Bangkok-headquartered SLP Environmental has announced the extension of its environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance auditing services to cover Myanmar, having spent the past year compiling a comprehensive in-house database of the existing and upcoming legislation and statutory guidance relating to EHS performance in the country. As such it is now able to offer clients a tailored EHS Legal Register (LR) service which is aligned with specific activities.
The move by SLP comes as the Myanmar government prepares to enact new occupational health and safety legislation which will apply to businesses operating in multiple sectors throughout Myanmar.
SLP already offers up to date, in-house EHS regulatory databases for Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
SLP has been operating across South East Asia for over a decade, and is an established name in Myanmar having previously assisted the Myanmar Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry (MOECAF) to prepare environmental impact assessment guidelines for oil and gas development projects (EA 21-Jan-16). It was also approved in 2016 by Myanmar’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) to prepare environmental impact assessment reports, initial environmental examination reports and environmental & social management and monitoring plans (ESMMP); only consulting firms approved and registered at MONREC may prepare EIA reports for projects in Myanmar.
SLP Environmental was founded in 2008 in Bangkok, Thailand, by managing director, Steve Pearmain, a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) who previously headed up the land quality division at Atkins in the UK, and director Liz Heath, with a remit to serve the South East Asia region. A second office was opened in Yangon, Myanmar, in 2016.
