If a facility is getting the wastewater treated by an offsite ETP and they are not willing to share their test reports/permits with us, would it result in a Zero score in the FEM?
No, scenarios that could result in a Zero score FEM applies to licenses and permits that are required associated with the facility. As long as the facility has a permit or agreement to dispose of wastewater to an external party, or the facility is not required to obtain a permit for Wastewater disposal as per the legal regulations within the country the facility is situated in, the facility will not get a zero score for not having the disposal permit of the offsite ETP, or disposal test reports from the offsite ETP. But it is recommended that the facility move to an Offsite ETP that is willing to provide this documentation, so that the facility can obtain higher scores in the Wastewater section.
