Setting up in a foreign country can get many benefits for your company, but those advantages come with responsibilities too. Do you want to know more about Mexico’s environmental regulations for the industry? At Tijuana EDC we will tell you more about it.
Environmental Laws in Mexico
In Mexico, there are government institutions in charge of regulating practices that benefit or harm the environment. Specifically, the Secretariat for Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) and the National Water Commission of Mexico (CONAGUA) are the institutions that set guidelines for the economic sector.
These are some of the regulations that companies must follow in order to protect and take care of the environment:
- Air pollution levels: In Mexico, the emission of particles that cause air pollution should be monitored in order to stay lower than the permitted level. Companies should follow the regulations and have the appropriate equipment to control these emissions.
- Water pollution: Regarding the discharge of wastewater, there are specific regulations that establish the maximum levels of wastewater allowed for certain types of industries, in order to prevent and control the pollution of water in Mexico.
- Chemical agents: There are processes and measures to carry out and consider in order to prevent health risks when being exposed to harmful chemical agents.
Although there are many more regulations to take into account, it is also important to consider that these regulations may change depending on the type of industry: automotive, medical device, electronics, etc. Your company should follow these regulations in order to protect a beautiful country like Mexico, as well as to maintain the health of Mexican workers.
