Republic Act 6969

RA 6969  is commonly known as the Toxic Substances, Hazardous and Nuclear Wastes Control Act of 1990. It is being implemented by DENR through Administrative Order No 29 (DAO 29) series of 1992.  The said DAO provides specific guidelines for the implementation of Title II Toxic Chemical Substances and Title III- Hazardous and Nuclear Wastes.

An integral component of the implementation of RA 6968 pertains to Chemical Control Order which sets the limit/regulates the use, manufacture, import, export, transport, processing and wholesale of chemicals listed under the Priority Chemical List (PCL).

EMB-NCR is mandated to register firms/projects generating hazardous wastes through the Hazardous Wastes Generator ID no. This system enables the regional office to keep tract of the volume of hazardous wastes generated in Metro Manila and traces their final point of destination.

Part of the implementation of RA 6969 is the issuance of Transport Permit for the hauling of hazardous wastes and Importation Clearance for substances not included in the Priority Chemical List.
