Article on chemical control legislation in South America published in the German Journal „Stoffrecht”

The recent edition (1/2017) of the German Journal „Stoffrecht“ contains an article published by Dr. Dieter Drohmann (Managing Director of Chemservice Group), Doris Peters (Managing Director of Chemineral Deutschland GmbH) and Dr. Dominik Kirf (Director at Chemservice S.A.), which focuses on chemical control regulations in the MerCoSur-region (Mercado Común del Sur = Common Market of the South).

The authors take a look at the economic situation of the region, focusing on the chemical sector and the current situation of chemical control regulations.

While harmonized systems regarding GHS, Food Contact and Cosmetics already exist in the MerCoSur region, Brasil is currently the only country, which attempts to implement a comprehensive chemicals law. The article contains core-contents of the planned legislation and shows similarities to other directives like REACH.

Concluding, the authors point out that despite existing regulatory framework, its implementation is in each country’s own responsibility. They recommend exporters of chemical products to South America to observe the developments of chemical control legislation in this region closely.

In case you are potentially affected by South American chemical control legislation, the Chemservice Team is able to provide to you a professional regulatory affairs support.
