Development of the Mexican National
Chemicals Inventory
Chemical Inventory Team
Chemicals Management Forum
San Antonio, Texas
15–16 May 2012
Commission for Environmental Cooperation
Background
• The CEC established a trinational Chemical Inventory Team
to work with Mexico in constructing its National Chemicals
Inventory.
• This activity aligns with the objectives of:
– developing tools that facilitate the tracking of chemicals between
the North American countries
– developing information within the North American region that is
comparable and compatible
2
Chemical Inventory Team
• Understand and convey the rationale
• Share the experience of previous efforts under
US-TSCA and Canada’s DSL
• Convene experts to review the “lessons learned”
• Homologate the information on industrial
chemicals in the North American region
• Strengthen competitiveness within a global
market

Identification and analysis of the federal legal framework for
chemicals management as a basis for developing a chemicals
inventory in Mexico
• The report contains the description and analysis of the legal
instruments related to chemicals management in Mexico.
The analysis highlighted the lack of legal foundations to
create a chemical inventory and propose three scenarios to
fill the gaps in the legislation:
1. Create a General Law for Chemicals Management
2. Modify the General Law of the Ecological Balance and
Environmental Protection
3. Modify the internal regulation of the Intersecretarial
Commission for Controlling the Process and Use of
Pesticides, Fertilizers and Toxic Substances

Inventory for managing data of interest from industries under state
jurisdiction
• The aim of this project was to develop an information system for
administration and presentation of data reported by industry under
state jurisdiction through the local Annual Report of Operations (COA)
for subsequent integration into the National Chemicals Inventory.

Selection of sources of information for improving the quality of
data for the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory
• The aim of this project was to select viable information sources for
compiling data on imports of chemicals and promoting
improvement in the quality of data to be incorporated in the
National Chemicals Inventory.
• The different public databases were reviewed and meetings were
held with representatives of different government entities:
–
–
–
–
–
Customs
INEGI
PEMEX
Ministry of Economy
Bank of Mexico
• As result, the Customs database was found to be the most useful
source of information since it contains data from all the import
transactions by means of the “Motion document” that comes with
the merchandise.

•
The aim of this project was to validate the chemical identity of 1250 chemical
substances listed in the Mexican National Chemicals Inventory that are not included in
the TSCA inventory and the DSL in order to confirm their proper chemical identity and
assure compatibility with the inventories of Canada and US.

Inventory
• The aim of this project is to analyze the different policy options
for assuring sustainability of the Mexican National Chemicals
Inventory through a legal analysis of obstacles and opportunities
to support an intergovernmental group in taking decisions on
how to proceed in creating a register of chemical substances.
• The main options analyzed in the project include:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Analysis of policy risks from different alternatives
Ad hoc Group to analyze and decide on implementation
Changes in national laws and regulations
Creation of an specific organization to maintain the national
registry of chemical substances

Review of information on the production of chemical
substances from official records in Mexico
•
79% of the registries could not be used, since mixtures, minerals, inks,
packaging material, and generic names are used in the sources of
information
• 21% (21,307) of the registries could be matched to a chemical
• The main results are:
 1,500 chemicals from the raw materials section of COA (962 included
in the INSQ)
 291 chemicals from the products section of COA (100% matched with
the INSQ)
 399 chemicals from PROFEPA (294 included in the INSQ)
 9 chemicals from the PEMEX Annual Report 2010
 13 chemicals from INEGI
Other advances
• Intersectoral meetings between
government agencies, the private sector,
academics and NGOs, to disseminate the
advances
• Intersectoral meeting for collective
reflection regarding the limitations,
advantages and needs for management
and research on chemical substances in
Mexico: April 24th, 2012
27
The way forward…
• Publication of the National Chemicals Inventory:
Between July and October 2012
• Proposal for public policy and updating of the
legal framework:
October 2012 to March 2013
