Throughout 2019 SILLAC thanks HAZCOM Warriors

Get to know the Hazcom Warrior Program

The Wounded Warrior Project contributes to chemical management compliance.

 

Who are HAZCOM Warriors?

The HAZCOM Warriors Program is comprised of injured veterans and their caregivers. The Program includes men and women who, while healing from injuries received during deployments and missions, specifically healing from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), or other physical injuries, have approached a way to continue their service through chemical management compliance and implementation. The program allows the HAZCOM Warriors to become experts on exposure risks with a thorough understanding of what employers can do to help ensure workplace safety.

In 2018 SILLAC launched its SDS Authoring, GHS Management, and other Chemical Management compliance services and appreciates the work that HAZCOM Warriors have contributed to this year’s efforts.  SILLAC HAZCOM Warrior consulting model is a perfect fit for many nonprofits and small businesses who might otherwise be faced with either non-compliance or product deletion.

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.

Please contact lcuevas@sillac.com for further information on how Chile, Mexico, and Peru can benefit your business under the CPTPP, or if you wish to receive the CPTPP text and chapters.
