A week ago, the deputies of the Chamber of Chile approved the introduction of some amendments on the current text of the Chilean general Environmental regulation. The core of the amendment is focused on the introduction of "odour" as an environmental pollutant within this regulation.
After a procedural discussion in which several deputies took part, this motion was carried by 124 votes in favour, 29 against and 2 abstentions.
This amendment will include a definition on objectionable odours and it will force to the environmental regulators to consider this important environmental vector any time that an activity or project is being developed.
