The DRNA and DACO approve regulations on the prohibition of single-use plastics

He Department of Natural and Environmental Resources (DRNA) and the Department of Consumer Affairs (DACO) submitted last Friday afternoon to the Department of State the regulations that must accompany the Law 51 of 2022that prohibits the sale and use of single-use plastics, during its implementation.

As a general rule, the regulations come into force once 30 days have passed after their filing with the Department of State, establishes the Uniform Administrative Procedure Law of the Government of Puerto Rico (Law 38 of 2017). This medium asked the public agency to specify when the statute would come into effect, but the agency had not offered a response at the time of this publication.

“There is negligence on the part of both departments,” the lawyer stressed Pedro Saade Llorensan environmental expert, regarding the delay in submitting the regulations.

However, the fact that the regulation has been presented on the verge of the law’s entry into force – this Monday, July 1 – and that it is not applied together with the statute, is no excuse for non-compliance with it and “does not prevent (the law) from coming into force,” the lawyer said.
