Need for the Document[edit]

Please provide the need for the procedure. e.g. Birth Certificate - why do we need to have a birth certificate? 
 

Information which might help[edit]

  • The issuance of the License for Noise in Excess of Permissible Noise Levels by the Executive Director, as opposed to a Technical Committee as is the case for the pollution license and the license to own or operate a waste management plant or disposal site, concentrates licensing authority in the hands of one person, thereby exposing the process to abuse and subjectivity.
  • In addition, the stakeholder sentiment was to the effect that NEMA licensing processes are bogged down by bureaucracy


Other uses of the Document/Certificate[edit]

Please explain what are other uses of obtaining this document/certificate.
e.g. Birth Certificate can be used as proof of identity.
