The plan for the regions of Los Lagos, Aysén and Magallanes establishes, among other measures, that in the event of specific contingencies in collection centers, salmon fattening centers, fish farms, transfer stations and processing plants, contingency and / or emergency plans must be activated.

Given the coronavirus crisis (Covid-19) that affects the country, the Superintendency of the Environment (SMA) has decided to activate a protocol for the aquaculture industry that operates in the regions of Los Lagos, Aysén and Magallanes, as a way to facilitate and encourage environmental compliance and safeguard people's health.

The Superintendency informed the industry, through SalmonChile and the Magallanes Association of Salmon Farmers, that it will continue to carry out the inspection tasks that are necessary to fulfill its mission. However, these will be limited to unscheduled activities linked to risky situations that could affect the environment and people's health. The foregoing, taking into account the sanitary, environmental and operational measures authorized by SERNAPESCA through Ex. Resolution No. 565 dated 03/16/20.

In addition, the SMA established that in case of specific contingencies generated in collection centers, salmon fattening centers, fish farms, transfer stations and process plants during the coronavirus pandemic, the corresponding contingency and / or emergency plans must be activated.

In the face of difficulties for the execution of committed monitoring, through technical entities of environmental enforcement (ETFAs) or other authorized third parties, in environmental instruments of  SMA’s competence it is requested to proceed in accordance with the previously established.

The instructions establish that all documentation that is necessary to send to SMA regional offices must be temporarily channeled digitally to the emails: o[email protected], [email protected] and [email protected], as appropriate. Meanwhile, the documents must be duly signed and digitized in pdf format.

Resolution Ex. 497/2020 signed by the superintendent Cristóbal De La Maza established that, as of its publication in the Official Gazette, it is the duty of the owners to report the operational status of the auditable units that have one or more Environmental Qualification Resolutions (RCA) through the Notices / Contingencies / Incidents module of the SMA's Environmental Monitoring System (SSA).

In the case of salmon fattening centers (CES) that are inactive - either because they are complying a sanitary rest or for another reason - only an initial report should be made (just once), indicating that such CES is not operational. Meanwhile, for auditable units that have more than one RCA it will suffice to elaborate a report in one of them, indicating the corresponding auditable unit and the RCAs that it owns.
