Regulator’s Training cum Exposure Visit on CEMS in Germany


For successful implementation of Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) in India, CSE firmly believe in capacity building. After its first training for regulators in India, CSE has planned for another training cum exposure visit to Germany for regulators. The programme will provide practical experience of CEMS regulation, implementation models and best practices that will strengthen the knowledge base and required skills of our regulatory officials.

The one week training programme was scheduled during 3-12th September 2016. The first day of training programme included introduction and programme discussion on 3rd September, 2016 at CSE office at New Delhi while rest of the programme is being carried between 4th and 11th September, 2016 in Germany. An interaction and meeting of participants was conducted at CSE office on 12th September, 2016 in New Delhi. The objective of this meeting is to share the learnings from the visit and discuss on how to improve the implementation of CEMS in India. 

Based on the discussions, a CEMS task report has been prepared.





  • Centre for Science and Environment recognises Social Impact Assessment (SIA) as an important tool to inform decision makers, regulators and stakeholders about the possible social and economic impacts of a development project. To be effective, SIA requires the active involvement of all concerned stakeholders. CSE has developed a five-day training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on SIA with specific reference to infrastructure, mining and other industrial projects.

  • With rapid urbanisation and rising consumption of goods and services, India is facing a massive waste management challenge. Every year, urban India produces 62 million tonne (MT) of municipal solid waste, 31 MT of which is dumped onto landfill sites. Figures for recycling are abysmal; for instance, only 1.5 per cent of e-waste is recycled. The need of the hour is to shift the focus of waste management towards processing and resource recovery.
