Generators of Hazardous Waste

The Environmental Secretariat will order the Hazardous waste’s Generators which have not renewed the Annual Environmental Certificate after it’s maturity, to do so on a period of ten days, with a warning to apply punishment measures.

The Annual Environmental Certificate renewal must detail, as it’s established by section 5 of Law 24.051 (the “Law”), if there has been any changes on the original procedures at the time being and when the certificate is granted. If there have been changes, they must be explained.

As established by section 49 of the Law, those companies that fail to renew their certificate, may be subject to fines for amounts of up to $500.000, interdiction, or the exclusion of the Registry.
