Introspections and Suggestions on the Amount Fixing of Administrative Penalty for Environmental Pollution


Environmental pollution has seriously damaged the health of mankind and the development of future generations. Because pollution damages are irreversible, taking effective measures to prevent contamination accidents is the primary task for administrative penalty on environmental pollution. However, the specific amount of such penalty is a little bit on the low side, and the standard for fixing the penalty is not rational somewhat. As a result, the original functions and purpose of administrative penalty on environmental pollution cannot be fully achieved. By comparing and using for reference related systems at home and abroad, this paper advances the drawbacks and suggestions for the amount fixing of China’s administrative penalty on environmental pollution in the hope of supplying theoretical basis for the improvement of China’s administrative penalty mechanism on environmental pollution.
