Strengthening Security in Industrial Parks

10:03:22 AM | 9/10/2020

Vinh Phuc province has particularly focused on State management in construction in industrial parks. Improper, illegal constructions have had negative impacts on fire prevention in industrial parks. Facing this reality, the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority has coordinated with relevant units to carry out many solutions to strictly manage construction in local industrial parks.

Over the past years, in order to gradually strengthen State construction management in industrial parks, the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority has raised legal knowledge of construction order to businesses; guided the implementation of construction projects for enterprises; publicly announced industrial park planning and construction schemes and guiding documents for enterprises to understand and implement; seriously assessed and adjusted detailed industrial park planning; simplified administrative procedures to speed up construction licensing progress for projects in industrial parks; and intensified construction inspection and supervision in industrial parks to detect and make timely correction to construction works in violation.

In the year to date, the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority has carried out a sudden inspection into regulatory compliance of investment, construction and environment at YMT Vina Co., Ltd - Vinh Phuc Branch; and checked investment and construction activity at Vietnam Precision Industry Company Limited I (Khai Quang Industrial Park) and Good Paper Packaging Industrial Co., Ltd (Ba Thien II Industrial Park). Good Paper Packaging Industrial Co., Ltd was found carrying out unlicensed construction. Thus, the company was requested to immediately stop the construction, make and submit an inspection and assessment report on construction quality.

According to the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority, construction violations in local industrial parks are mainly attributed to rapid growth of investment and construction amid a thin force of officials in charge of planning management, construction licensing and construction management. Meanwhile, their management area is too wide and construction projects in the industrial parks are so many, resulting in late inspection, discovery and handling of violations. Moreover, at present, legal provisions on construction order management in industrial parks are revealing many problems. In order to minimize construction order violations in industrial parks, in the coming time, the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority will promote communications, dissemination and guidance of legal documents concerning investment and construction for local organizations and businesses to understand and implement. It has advised the Vinh Phuc Provincial People’s Committee to issue guiding documents on planning management, construction licensing and construction order management; strengthened construction inspection and supervision in industrial parks.

At the same time, in order to avoid overlapping and to be active in construction licensing and construction management, based on its jurisdiction, the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority advised the Provincial People’s Committee to soon decentralize and authorize the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority to perform State management of planning and construction in industrial parks as per Decree 82/2018/ND-CP of the Government.
