Transporting Chemical Products

Since we are, in fact, specialists, it means that we are experts in regulatory information of chemical management compliance, applicable to your business needs, throughout LAC. For this reason, we can guarantee our work 100 percent.

Unlike other providers of chemical management regulation, Specialists at SILLAC can assist clients efficiently and effectively freeing them from the burden of dealing with the complexity of chemical management compliance of their products.

Generally, chemical management providers rely on non-lawyer analysts with little or no skills in local laws of LAC jurisdictions, who look for regulations on the internet to build a “compliance” package. The “supplier-customer” relationship ends there; unless they sell the customer other products such as data sheets and labelling, however, it is often without follow-up, unless the customer has a complaint.

At SILLAC, we follow-up with our customers to ensure that they will always have the support they deserve and SILLAC’s mission describes our commitment to them:

  • For our customers to know what to do to meet the regulatory framework of Latin America and the Caribbean
  • Communicate with our clients with the utmost sincerity explaining the expectations of the diligent observation of the local laws and regulations
  • Walk with our clients, prepare them and guide them throughout their business in Latin America and the Caribbean.

At SILLAC we take our commitment to our clients very seriously and that is why, our customers are confident and trust that they comply with the regulatory framework of their jurisdiction (s).  Once you become our chemical management client, SILLAC conducts follow up to ensure that the products and regulatory services we provide are exactly what your business and products require.

We hope this will never happen, but SILLAC can guarantee that if your company is ever involved in any liability arising from non-compliance, we will stand behind it all the way. Therefore, not only is it logical, but it makes good business sense, to work with an international regulatory company that can provide all your chemical management compliance needs, including safety data sheets and labelling, as we do, and legal assistance.

This is one of the reasons why SILLAC, a chemical management compliance provider, can also provide you with legal support on legal issues arising from any activity involving chemicals, raw materials, or any other finished product in Latin America and the Caribbean.

It’s Official!! The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement Finalized and Signed

The signing of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) took place in Santiago, Chile on March 8, 2018. New Zealand, however, remains the official repository country for the CPTPP, whose Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade released the final version on February 22, 2018.  Signatory countries include: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

Among new benefits under the CPTPP, access to transport services for Canada from its 10 partners.

 

Twenty-two provisions were suspended from the original draft, following US withdrawal from the Transpacific Pacific Partnership (TPP). These provisions mostly impacted the US software industry. However, if conditions are favorable, there’s a chance the United States may join later although there is no guarantee that members to the CPTPP will lift the suspensions.

 

The finalized CPTPP contains 30 chapters and numerous Side instruments and Annexes. The CPTPP will take effect 60 days after it is approved by 6 signatories or at least 50 percent of the parties, per Article 3 of the CPTPP.  Each country must process ratification and legislative implementation so that the CPTPP becomes law in its jurisdiction.
