Specialty Technical Publishers

Specialty Technical Publishers (STP) and Specialty Technical Consultants (STC) announce the availability of the newly updated International Audit Protocol Consortium (IAPC) EHS audit protocol for Argentina. Leading companies around the world use IAPC EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost effective manner. IAPC EHS audit protocols are now prepared by STC in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific application for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, STC has indepth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP and STC maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

  • “Resolution No. 297 of September 10, 2018” establishes a new Registry of Establishments and Activities of the Matanza Riachuelo Basin, in which all operations and activities in the Matanza Riachuelo Basin and the Dock Sud sector must register (unless their operations are specifically excluded).    
  • “Decree No. 531 of May 17, 2019” implements “Law No. 11,459/93” and sets the general requirements for industrial facilities in the province to apply for classification of the facility’s Environmental Complexity Level and to obtain an environmental operating authorization.
  • “Resolution No. 494 of July 15, 2019” details the 3-phase framework for industrial facilities to apply for a Classification of Environmental Complexity Level and environmental certificate through the provincial web portal.
  • “Decree No. 1074 of September 13, 2018” repeals “Decree No. 3,395/96” and creates new rules to control air pollution.
