Environmental Regulations


Environmental Laws & Regulations in Myanmar: IEE, EIA, SIA, CSR and MIC Permit


MiTA provides IEE, EIA, SIA and CSR consulting services in Myanmar for preparation of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report for MIC Permit application to be submitted to Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC).


As per guidelines of Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC) any company investing in Myanmar has to fulfill requirements of protecting environments following environmental laws and regulations of Myanmar and international environment protection laws and practices. Prior to apply for MIC permit local Myanmar companies as well as foreign companies / investors need to do initial environmental examination (IEE), environmental impact assessment (EIA) and social impact assessment (SIA). Responsible investors need to run corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs for societal development in Myanmar.


Until 2012, there was no specific law protecting the environment in Myanmar. The 2008 Constitution contains provisions guaranteeing the conservation of natural resources and the prevention of environmental degradation. Environment impact assessments were not required for any projects, governmental or private, and there were no laws controlling pollution of water or air.


Environmental protection generally falls under the aegis of the National Commission for Environmental Affairs (NCEA). The NCEA formulates the government’s environmental policy and sets environmental standards. However, significant budget and resource constraints have compromised the ability of the NCEA to serve its stated purposes. In addition, lack of legislative attention has resulted in few guidelines and little support for NCEA action.


The Environmental Conservation Law 2012 was enacted in March 2012. Rules to implement the new law have not been announced.


Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC) Notification 1/2013 requires an environmental impact assessment (EIA) for oil and gas projects.


Myanmar is in transition and new investor friendly rules & regulations are being implemented. The laws & regulations are changing very fast. You may contact our company for updated information and consulting services in Myanmar.
