Covid-19 Fighting on all fronts

Environmental | CETESB suspends the need of compliance with take-back schemes during the pandemic


The Environmental Protection Agency of the State of São Paulo (CETESB), through its Board Decision No. 035/2020/P, published today (April 08, 2020) on the Official Gazette, has suspended the need of compliance with take-back schemes quantitative targets for 2020 (previously regulated by Board Decision No. 114/2019/P/C), for as long as the COVID-19 state of emergency lasts.

During the suspension period, however, the take-back system must keep investing on waste collectors’ cooperatives the same amounts that have been invested for the past 06 (six) months, on average. Such investment must occur through direct payment to the cooperatives, and will be considered an additional amount to the social assistance adopted by municipal, state and federal governments towards that group. Evidence of such investment must be presented within the submission of financial reports, to be filed with the Annual Results Report of 2020.

This suspension does not encompass take-back systems which does not operate through structuring and support to those cooperatives.

The rule entered in force on April 06, 2020.
