Environmental permissions cancelled

The Ministry of the Environment has issued Resolution No. 0001/2018 cancelling more than 400 environmental permissions issued over the last several years. A press release explains the permissions had either expired or had not been collected at the Ministry by the interested parties. The situation was detected during the procedures to install the One Stop Shop at the Ministry.

The press note explained that the Compendium of Rulings and Procedures for Environmental Permissions in the Dominican Republic, of September 2014, in article 46, establishes that the developer has 60 days to pay for and collect the environmental permission. Should this time limit expire, the Ministry can extend it for 30 days. If that time period passes the permission is cancelled.

The complete list of those cancelled is available on the Ministry website at www.ambiente.gob.do
