DNPM launches Public Consultation on Normative Acts Proposals


National Department of Mineral Production – DNPM launches public consultation on proposals for the amendment of two normative acts (Portarias DNPM n° 416/2012 e n° 526/2013) concerning dam safety regulations.

The proposals amend both abovementioned rules, which concern, respectively, the Mining Dam Safety Plan and the plan for implementation of emergency actions in case of a mining dam disaster. The proposals, according to DNPM, should improve mining and environmental agencies’ performance in its inspections activities and also ensure that civil society would be able to follow-up the dams’ conditions.

The drafts will be available for consultation between 19 december 2016 and 3rd march 2017, when civil society’s contributions shall be sent to [email protected]

Sion Advogados counts with a highly qualified team in environmental and mining law and remains at disposal for any further clarifications.
