2. The Self-monitoring Guidelines for Pollution Sources General Rule (HJ819-2017)
4.3 Carry out the self-monitoring
Pollution sources shall carry out the monitoring according to the latest monitoring plan, by using their own personnel, places and facilities according to their conditions and abilities; and also can entrust other qualified inspection institutions to carry out the self-monitoring.
The contents of the annual self-monitoring report of enterprises with pollutant discharge permit can be reflected in the annual implementation report of pollutant discharge permit.
(Editor: entrusted monitoring is permitted. The entrusted units shall have corresponding qualifications, so that they can play the role of evidence in future annual reports or legal disputes.)
5.1 the contents of monitoring
Ø 5.1.1 污染物排放监测，……包括废气污染物（以有组织或无组织形式排入环境）、废水污染物（直接排入环境或排入公共污水处理系统）及噪声污染等。(编者注：与传统要求一致)
Ø 5.1.1 monitoring on pollutant emission……including waste gas (including the organizational emission or the non-organizational emission), wastewater (directly discharged into the environment or into the municipal domestic sewage system) and noise. (Editor's note: it is the same with the original requirements)
Ø 5.1.2 周边环境质量影响监测，污染物排放标准、环境影响评价文件及其批复或其他环境管理有明确要求的，排污单位应按照要求对其周边相应的空气、地表水、地下水、土壤等环境质量开展监测；其他排污单位根据实际情况确定是否开展周边环境质量影响监测。
Ø 5.1.2 monitoring on the impact of surrounding environment, if there are clear requirements for pollutant emission standards, environmental impact assessment and its approval documents or other environmental management, the pollution sources shall carry out the monitoring on the surrounding environment quality, including the air, surface water, groundwater and soil; other pollution sources shall determine whether the monitoring on the impact of surrounding environment is necessary according to the actual situation.
Ø 5.1.3 关键工艺参数监测，在某些情况下，可以通过对与污染物产生和排放密切相关的关键工艺参数进行测试以补充污染物排放监测。
Ø 5.1.3 monitoring on the critical process parameters, in some cases, the critical process parameters closely related to pollutant generation and emissions can be tested as the supplement of pollutant emission monitoring.
Ø 5.1.4 污染治理设施处理效果监测，若污染物排放标准等环境管理文件对污染治理设施有特别要求的，或排污单位认为有必要的，应对污染治理设施处理效果进行监测。
Ø 5.1.4 monitoring on the treatment effects of the pollution control facilities, if the environmental management documents such as the standards for pollutant discharge have proposed special requirements for pollution control facilities, or if the pollution sources thinks it is necessary, the monitoring on the treatment effects of the pollution control facilities shall be carried out.
