Barrera Peña, Ivonne Natalia | 2019
Currently in Colombia there is a regulatory regulation on packaging that is governed according to Resolution 1407 of 2018 that talks about the environmental management of packaging waste and packaging of paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, metal and other determinations are made .
According to the Chamber of Cosmetics of the ANDI notes that consumption in the cosmetics sector has doubled with an average annual growth of 9.9% 2, going from producing US $ 1,301 million to US $ 3,659 million in 2011. In 2015 the market Colombian cosmetic products amounted to US $ 4,885 million dollars, 4.3% more than in 2014. By 2018 it is expected to reach US $ 5,274 million dollars. (Restrepo, 2015)
This work proposes a preliminary environmental management plan for packaging waste and cosmetic products in Colombia according to Resolution 1407 of 2018 addressed to the cosmetics industry, through the study of resolution 1407 of 2018, the comparison with international legislation on the management of packaging waste and the presentation of a tool that will serve as a guide for the implementation of the environmental management plan for packaging and packaging waste, aimed at the cosmetic industry.
Concluding that in Colombia the cosmetic sector is mostly small companies, which do not have the necessary resources to implement environmental standards at the level of ISO 14001, however, it is very important for the government to start the necessary processes in where more control, responsibility and awareness of environmental impact is generated in the generation of waste from the packaging of cosmetic products and its final disposal by producers, as well as designing and formulating pilot projects as soon as possible so that the regulatory entity (ANLA) approves and certifies them in the appropriate time before the beginning of the regulation 1407 of 2018.
