Notice to the Public

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in conjunction with the Pesticide Toxic Chemical Control Board (PTCCB) and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) hereby inform all importers, retailers, traders and distributors of Mercury, that an Environmental Authorisation is required from the EPA, effective August 01, 2019. This is in keeping with the Environmental Protection Act Cap. 20:05, Laws of Guyana.


Failure to obtain an Environmental Authorisation from the EPA will deem you ineligible to acquire a licence from the PTCCB to import, retail or distribute Mercury. To avoid this, persons are asked to make immediate contact with the EPA.


Further, the written consent of the Commissioner of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission is at all times required before any shipment of mercury is imported into Guyana for mining purposes.


Should you have further questions or require information on what documentation is needed to facilitate this process, please contact Ms. Odessa Duncan, Senior Environmental Officer of the Environmental Protection Agency or the Environment Division of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission.
