Environmental Site Assessments in Thailand


Juslaws & Consult offers a full range of services to clients in the area of environmental law in Thailand. We are able to assist clients when environmental site assessments and audits are needed. Also as part of a due diligence process, our environmental professionals review environmental site or facility assessments prepared by others.

Juslaws & Consult also advises clients on whether an assessment has been accurately prepared and if the conclusions in the report are supported by the data. Environmental site assessments are often prepared in the case of real estate transactions to identify existing or potential environmental contamination issues.

In the report's analysis, the underlying land and physical improvements to the property are generally both addressed. An environmental assessment is typically seen as a first step in an environmental due diligence process. Prospective property purchasers often want to assess the risks involved in owning a commercial property, when there has been a history of prior toxic chemical usage or disposal, for example. In many cases the assessments are also conducted to determine the potential cleanup costs if the property is under consideration for redevelopment or a change in land use.

Typically during an environmental site assessment, the site is examined for possible soil contamination and the quality of the groundwater and surface water is checked. There will likely be a search for chemical residues within structures and an inventory made of hazardous substances that are stored or have been used on the site as well. Depending upon the specific site, there are a number of tasks carried out to check for environmental problems. The following is a list of some tests that are commonly undertaken when Juslaws & Consult performs an assessment, but this list is not exhaustive:

  • Conducting an on-site visit to assess present conditions, usage of hazardous substances or petroleum products and to evaluate likely past environmental issues
  • Evaluating risks of adjacent and nearby properties
  • Interviewing persons with knowledge of the property‚Äôs history
  • Examining official government files for information on permits granted and prior land usage history
  • Conducting searches with agencies having oversight on soil contamination and water quality
  • Examining the property's chain of title for environmental liens and land use limitations
