Objection Procedures based on Environmental Guidelines

JBIC introduced objection procedures simultaneously with implementation of its Guidelines for Confirmation of Environmental and Social Considerations (the "Environmental Guidelines") and Guidelines for Confirmation of Information Disclosure Considerations for Nuclear Sector Projects (the "Information Disclosure Guidelines") to ensure its compliance with the Environmental Guidelines and the Information Disclosure Guidelines. Their objectives are (1) to investigate facts as to whether or not the Environmental Guidelines and the Information Disclosure Guidelines have been complied with by JBIC and report the results thereof to the Executive Committee; and (2) to encourage dialogues between the parties concerned based on their consent in order to assist early resolution of disputes concerning specific environmental and/or social problems caused by the JBIC-funded project, which arose due to JBIC's non-compliance with the Environmental Guidelines or the Information Disclosure Guidelines. Examiners for Environmental Guidelines were appointed as an independent entity for conducting investigation.

The concrete procedures are set forth in the following:

For the status of acceptance of the requests and the progress of procedures, please see here.
