2.
The framework presented in this legal register is for reference only; users shall include legal and other
requirements applicable to the activities, services and products of their operations, in the legal register.
3.
In general, the major environmental legislations in Hong Kong cover the following areas:
•
Air emission control
•
Noise control
•
Waste management
•
Water pollution control
•
Environmental Impact Assessment
As a starting point, users may visit the following websites of the Environmental Protection Department
for an overview of the environmental legislations, standards and guidelines of Hong Kong:
•
Environmental Legislations
(http://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/english/laws_regulations/envir_legislation/laws_relatedleg.html)
•
Environmental Standards and Guidelines

Many road breaking operations, especially on
heavily trafficked road, have to be performed
at night to avoid traffic congestion during the
day. Road breaking works using conventional
breakers are particularly disturbing and are the
subject of many noise complaints, particularly
with respect to sleep disturbance. The
adoption of quieter construction methods and
equipment can provide worthwhile reduction in
the nuisance caused by road breaking
operation.

This practice note is issued to provide
information on the management framework for
dredged/excavated sediment disposal under
the Dumping at Sea Ordinance, Cap. 466
(DASO). It states the requirements for
justifying the need for dredging and provides
guidance for the authorized persons/registered
structural engineers (AP/RSE) on how to
obtain information on the sediment, which can
then be used for supporting the permit
application by the contractors and/or other
parties responsible for the disposal. It also
describes the classification of sediment into
three categories based on their contaminant
levels, outlines the procedures for assessing
sediment quality and explains the marine
disposal arrangements for the different
sediment categories.

To reduce the pressure on the demand of
public filling and landfill capacity, one of the
means of resource conservation and waste
minimization is to recycle hard and inert
construction and demolition (C&D) materials,
such as broken rock and concrete, into
aggregates and put them into good use. This
PNAP sets out the technical guidelines for
using recycled aggregates in prescribed mix
concrete of specified grade strength of 20P
and designed mix concrete of specified grade
strengths of 25D to 35D.
