Any type of project created in the Philippines that may affect the environment must secure an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) from the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Alternatively, the project may be issued a Certificate of Non-Coverage (CNC) if the DENR-EMB team finds that the project is not part of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
The Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) came from Administrative Order #42, which mandates the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) under the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to accept, process, and approve qualified applications for ECC.
Initially, the administrative order sprung from the Presidential Decree created in 1978 by Ferdinand Marcos, which stated that “no person, partnership, or corporation shall undertake or operate any such declared environmentally critical project or area without first securing an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC).”
Any proposed projects declared as Environmentally Critical Projects (ECPs) or projects situated in Environmentally Critical Areas (ECAs) which allegedly cause substantial environmental effects should secure DENR’s ECC.
