In addition to the EMP and EMOP, Initial findings are reflected in this Environmental Compliance Report which will be relayed to the contractor for them to give attention on its compliance.

Should there be problems encountered in its implementation, the contractor can discuss it during Coordination Meetings with the presence of PMU3 and the CSC for proper guidance. Monthly reports with proper documentation should be submitted to the PMU3 and CSC.
