Reuters is reporting that China's environment ministry has criticised companies in Beijing and surrounding provinces for exceeding emission limits and ignoring emergency restrictions during the region's latest smog crisis.

As part of efforts to control hazardous air pollution, Beijing and Hebei province have implemented rapid response systems to limit traffic and force companies to reduce production or slow construction work during heavy smog.

However investigations over the past week revealed that a number of companies were failing to comply with emergency measures.

The ministry said eleven companies in Hebei and nine in neighbouring Shandong province were found to have exceeded emission limits during a recent period of heavy smog.

It identified cement companies in the region, and also said a number of construction sites in Beijing had failed to follow regulations to reduce dust.
