The bill, promoted by the executive branch that sets minimum environmental protection budgets for the management of empty containers had the approval of advisers and specialists, in general terms, but suggested some changes.
Representatives of the Chamber of the Argentina Industry Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals (CIAFA) today claimed that "plastic is not traceable and not known their use and destination." They insisted that management responsibility has to encompass the entire marketing chain and proposed to introduce in the glossary terms such as "differentiated management", "extended and shared responsibility" and "enable transport". They also requested that the law keeps the interjurisdictional traffic.
As for the division of containers, representatives of CIAFA coincided with the type "A" submitted to triple washing system; not as with categorized as class "B", which have no treatment of waste reduction, and insisted continue considering and treating hazardous under Law 24.051, Hazardous Waste.
Since the House objected to the stipulated time for companies are scored as registrants: will be 90 calendar days from the publication of the standard and then have 270 days to adapt its management to the new system. They also suggested a change in sanctions if it does not fit in the preset period.
With regard to the transport of containers, they supported the user does not require specific authorization to transport the containers to the CAT. But at the time of transfer between the storage center operator, they considered quem if it has passed through the triple washed "the same procedure should apply to the type A, and whether they should not go to final disposal."
Among the functions of the enforcement authority, they reiterated that programs should work with management to establish relations with the provinces, which are the competent authorities through their bodies and interact with municipalities. Finally they noted the difficulty of returning to a year of purchasing the container.
In turn, from the Chamber of Agricultural Health and Fertilizers (CASAFE) lined with positivity to reform the current system with a law and stressed the urgency of a commitment from all stakeholders.
Among its nuances, is the question that the producer / applicator should not travel further to return an empty drum that to acquire a new one. They accompanying manufacturers in the declassification and interjurisdictionality "to give life to the transfer drum."
As the collection scheme and primary classification of packaging, asked to be coordinated by local entities or persons near the CAT, as would be regional representatives, distributors or the municipalities. No hold harmless registrants about the authorship of the system, and technical and economic cooperation.
They maintained that the project is not about the registrant sufficient tools to apply sanctions to the producers. They said that the packaging type "B" should be carried by a different channel.
Santiago Ballesty, manager of the Business Chamber of Distributors of Agrochemicals, Seeds and Allied Buenos Aires, joined the Senasa has to complete the lack of traceability and auditing rejected by private.
Finally, the Argentina Association of Regional Consortia for Agricultural Experimentation (AACREA) was also present at the meeting and accompanied the initiative of the executive branch.
In principle, the treatment is agreed on consultants and the project will have the normal treatment process. Within the next two weeks it may be dictated by the senators. In theory, by mid-July it could reach the site, but it may take its course, because the sessions are being affected by the election.
