Development of the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory

  1. 1. Development of the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory Chemical Inventory Team Chemicals Management Forum San Antonio, Texas 15–16 May 2012Commission for Environmental Cooperation
  2. 2. Background• The CEC established a trinational Chemical Inventory Team to work with Mexico in constructing its National Chemicals Inventory.• This activity aligns with the objectives of: – developing tools that facilitate the tracking of chemicals between the North American countries – developing information within the North American region that is comparable and compatible 2
  3. 3. Chemical Inventory Team• Understand and convey the rationale• Share the experience of previous efforts under US-TSCA and Canada’s DSL• Convene experts to review the “lessons learned”• Homologate the information on industrial chemicals in the North American region• Strengthen competitiveness within a global market 3
  4. 4. Chemicals Inventory – MEXICORegulated Eliminate duplication PRTR study DSL National Chemical Industry Association annual report TSCA Customs Office reports Scifinder database ≈ 35, 000  5,890 4
  5. 5. Chemicals Inventory Content• CAS Registry Number: Preferred, Alternate, Deleted Registry Numbers• CAS Index Name and synonyms• Formula and molecular structure• Chemical class• Quantities produced and imported (2009)• Ecotoxicological data• Environmental persistence• Bioaccumulation• Toxicity in aquatic organisms 5

  8. 8. Identification and analysis of the federal legal framework for chemicals management as a basis for developing a chemicals inventory in Mexico• The report contains the description and analysis of the legal instruments related to chemicals management in Mexico. The analysis highlighted the lack of legal foundations to create a chemical inventory and propose three scenarios to fill the gaps in the legislation:1. Create a General Law for Chemicals Management2. Modify the General Law of the Ecological Balance and Environmental Protection3. Modify the internal regulation of the Intersecretarial Commission for Controlling the Process and Use of Pesticides, Fertilizers and Toxic Substances
  9. 9.

  11. 11. Development of an information system for the National Chemicals Inventory for managing data of interest from industries under state jurisdiction• The aim of this project was to develop an information system for administration and presentation of data reported by industry under state jurisdiction through the local Annual Report of Operations (COA) for subsequent integration into the National Chemicals Inventory.
  12. 12. Chemicals Inventory Timeline and Projects Design and development of a chemicals inventory Review the identity of (DEFRA) chemicals included in the Mexican National Chemicals InventoryIdentification and analysis of the Development of an information Imports volume data of (CEC) federal legal framework for system for the National chemicals under chemicals management as Chemicals Inventory for commerce from the Development of policy basis for the development of a managing data of interest from Customs Manifests options to assure the chemicals inventory in Mexico industries under state jurisdiction Database sustainability of the (CEC) (CEC) (CEC) Mexican National Chemicals Inventory (CEC) Chemicals production Selection of sources of Categorization criteria for information from official information to improve the chemicals under records in Mexico quality of the data for the commerce (CEC) Mexican National Chemicals (MX) Inventory (CEC) Development of an additional list of imported chemicals to complete the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory (MX) 2008 2009 2010 2011

  14. 14. Selection of sources of information for improving the quality of data for the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory• The aim of this project was to select viable information sources for compiling data on imports of chemicals and promoting improvement in the quality of data to be incorporated in the National Chemicals Inventory.• The different public databases were reviewed and meetings were held with representatives of different government entities: – Customs – INEGI – PEMEX – Ministry of Economy – Bank of Mexico• As result, the Customs database was found to be the most useful source of information since it contains data from all the import transactions by means of the “Motion document” that comes with the merchandise.

  23. 23. Development of policy options to assure the the sustainability of the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory• The aim of this project is to analyze the different policy options for assuring sustainability of the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory through a legal analysis of obstacles and opportunities to support an intergovernmental group in taking decisions on how to proceed in creating a register of chemical substances.• The main options analyzed in the project include: 1. Analysis of policy risks from different alternatives 2. Ad hoc Group to analyze and decide on implementation 3. Changes in national laws and regulations 4. Creation of an specific organization to maintain the national registry of chemical substances
