Peru: CLDP Conducts Workshop on Regulations for Sustainable Uranium Mining

May 16, 2019 - May 17, 2019

On May 16-17, 2019, in Lima, Peru, the Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) led a two-day workshop on Sustainable Regulation of Uranium Mining for approximately 35 officials from the Government of Peru. The purpose of this workshop was to advise the Government of Peru on the legal and regulatory framework it will need for the commercial mining of uranium.  

This workshop was a follow up to CLDP’s two analyses of Peru’s proposed regulations, the first of which advised on the regulatory framework and the second on Peru’s draft regulation for mining (i.e. extracting) uranium ore.  The workshop thus reviewed CLDP’s observations and recommendations made in those two analyses, provided an overview of the U.S. experience in regulating the lifecycle of uranium development, and identified lessons and practices that could be applicable to Peru. CLDP brought two experts who provided the bulk of the sessions for the workshop: Jon Indall, a lawyer at Maldegen Templeman & Indall L.L.P.; and Roger Haskins, a retired official from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and a last-minute replacement for Adam Merrill, an official at BLM who had analyzed Peru’s documentation for CLDP’s two analyses and had prepared this workshop’s slides. 

The officials from Peru were from a number of regulatory bodies, although the two key regulatory bodies present were the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MINEM) and the Peruvian Institute of Nuclear Energy (IPEN).

CLDP looks forward to building on this workshop by hosting a second meeting in July, 2019 to explore topics such as public participation and environmental impact assessments in mining.
