The following scenarios will result in a score of ZERO for the entire FEM, as these are considered basic compliance practices that must be met to achieve a FEM score.
- If your facility does not have a valid operating license. (i.e., if you answer "No" to the question "Does your factory site have a valid operating license?").
- If your facility does not have a required environmental permit. (i.e., if you answer, "Not Available" to the question "What is your status for this permit?" for any required environmental permits). o
- Note: If the permit status is “Not available due to authorization in progress” or “Available but Invalid” the FEM may be scored based on the condition below.
- If your facility is no longer able to meet the requirement of obtaining a required permit (i.e., if you answer, "Facility is no longer able to meet the requirement of obtaining the required permit" to the question "Please specify the reason why this permit is invalid?").
