In June 2016, following an open tender process, Pakar Scieno TW Sdn Bhd (PSTW) was awarded a 15-year contract to develop, establish and implement the Environmental Quality Monitoring Program (EQMP), which represents a new era in environmental quality monitoring network design and technology in Malaysia.
Towards this end, we have established an organisation built on innovative, state-of-the-art monitoring technologies and ICT, incorporating elements of IOT, coupled with extensive operational experience and supported by a team of air and water scientists and engineers.
Our Purpose & Mission
Consistently provide relevant and good environmental quality data as a basis for effective and sustainable management of the nation’s air quality as well as its river and marine water quality.
PSTW, with our core team of experienced air and water scientists and engineers, is driven by our mission to raise the standard of environmental monitoring in Malaysia to be at par with the best in the world.
Guided by international benchmarking, we have established partnerships with innovative monitoring technology providers, while every facet of our operations is based on international standards and guidelines. Indeed, our Quality Assurance and Quality Control program represents the epicentre of the company.
The mission of the company is to consistently provide to the Department of Environment (DoE) ready and consistent access to quality-assured data, generate relevant information and facilitate management decisions related to, not only the ambient environment, but also to pollution sources, thus optimising enforcement activities.
What is EQMP?
Environmental monitoring is an essential element in the management of the environment. Quality-assured data from monitoring activities allow for the more sustainable planning of development projects, support the effectiveness of enforcement activities and ultimately, enhance the overall management of the nation’s living environment and natural resources. Environmental data that contributes to establishing the status of the environment also represents a useful tool in assessing the effectiveness and improvement of management strategies.
In Malaysia, the systematic monitoring of the nation’s air quality and water resources, including the marine environment has essentially been the responsibility of the Department of Environment (DoE) under the Ministry of Environment and Water, although several other government agencies also undertake some form of environmental monitoring as it pertains to its respective roles and responsibilities.
Monitoring activities as conducted by the DoE commenced shortly after the establishment of the department in 1975. The nation-wide monitoring program assessing air and river water quality was contracted out to the private sector in 1995.
