ALLOCATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL RISK
We are experts in obtaining the approvals from the corresponding environmental authorities. Mexican Maquiladoras must submit an environmental preventive report which basically is a detailed report about the operation.
The authorities will then verify that there is no hazardous impact to the environment (Environmental Preventive Report). A result of such activities, likely an operating license together with other applications for the transportation, disposal and handling of materials or substances will have to be obtained. The authorities may grant their approval or request the Maquiladora file a more detailed environment impact report.
We also provide to our clients legal advice on drafting, negotiating and executing environmental clauses in agreements.
