TAMPIN: The state government together with the Department of Environment (DoE) will conduct “Ops Kimia” on factories soon to ensure that they comply with the standard operating procedure.

State Health, Environment, Cooperatives and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman S. Veerapan said the operations would be more focused on the factories which use and produce chemicals.

“This is to prevent a similar incident from happening like what happened in Sungai Kim Kim, Pasir Gudang,” he said at the seminar on Compliance of the Environment Quality Act 1974 and Regulations for the Tampin, Rembau, and Kuala Pilah districts here.“So far, there have been no incidents or issues connected to chemical pollution in Negri.”
