Authorization certificat is under section 22 of the Environment Quality Act
The purpose of the Environmental Quality Act (EQA) is to preserve the quality of the environment, promote its improvement and prevent its deterioration. One of the means provided by the legislation is to establish a preventive regime so certain activities or projects are obliged to obtain prior authorization from the Ministry.
Section 22 of the EQA states that " No one may erect or alter a structure, undertake to operate an industry, carry on an activity or use an industrial process or increase the production of any goods or services if it seems likely that this will result in an emission, deposit, issuance or discharge of contaminants into the environment or a change in the quality of the environment, unless he first obtains from the Minister a certificate of authorization".
The legislative objective adopted by this article is to prevent environmental degradation by obliging citizens, promoters and others to seek authorization before acting.
The first subparagraph mainly refers to projects in the terrestrial environment, whereas the second subparagraph contains a particular reference to works in a water or moist environment.
