Update of regulation for transport of hazardous materials will be reported | News

The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) will organize the forum “Environmental evaluation and inspection of contingency plans for land transportation of hazardous materials and / or waste.”

The objective is to detail the updating of the guidelines for the preparation and evaluation of contingency plans in land transportation of hazardous materials and / or waste at the national level.

It should be noted that the transport companies that transport hazardous materials and / or waste, request the MTC approval of their Contingency Plan.

It establishes the routes, materials and / or hazardous waste to be transported and the actions or mitigation measures in the event of a loss or accident, in order to preserve the health of the population and care for the environment.

As of October 22, the procedure for the presentation and evaluation of the Contingency Plan has changed.

For this reason, it is essential that transport companies know what this change consists of, which will optimize the process before the MTC.

For this reason, the Deputy Minister of Transportation, Verónica Cáceres, along with other MTC officials, will speak about these changes that reduce time and costs for carriers and citizens.

Participation

All transport companies that transport hazardous materials and / or waste and environmental consultants that prepare Contingency Plans can participate in the event organized by the MTC.

The event will be held on Wednesday, November 10 at 11 am, virtually and in person at the headquarters of the College of Engineers of Peru, in Miraflores, in the city of Lima.
