Online workshop on the state of compliance of the new Regulation for Pig Farms in Chile on October 26th

   The Superintendence of the Environment (SMA) in Chile is organizing an online workshop on October 26th at 11:00 (16:00 Central European time) that will be broadcast on YouTube regarding Compliance with the Emission Regulation for Pig Farm Facilities. The Odour Emission legislation for the Pig Farming Sector was published in February of this year, but where does its compliance currently stand?

   The Odour Emission regulation for the Pig Farming Sector applies to pig breeding, fattening, and/or reproduction operations with a quantity equal to or greater than 750 animals and a weight exceeding 25 kilograms. This legislation establishes three types of emitting sources. Operations with between 750 and 25,000 animals are considered small emitting sources, those with between 25,000 and 50,000 heads are classified as medium-sized, and those with over 50,000 animals are categorized as large emitting sources. This online workshop, broadcast on YouTube, will provide details on compliance with this law.

   The workshop is part of the Compliance Assistance process for owners subject to the Emission Regulation for Pig Farm Facilities, which, due to their odours, cause discomfort and pose a risk to the quality of life of the population, within the framework of reporting obligations in the Superintendence of the Environment's Atmospheric Monitoring System (SISAT).

   Attendance at the workshop is entirely free, and registration can be done by filling out the following form.
