Nuisance & waste regulations

The Curaçao Nuisance Ordinance (Hinderverordening Curaçao 1994) contains rules in order to prevent or restrict environmental hazards, damage or nuisance caused by operations or activities which have a negative impact on the local environment. It is prohibited to carry out, expand or change any activity which may affect the environment of Curaçao, without a permit of the government. The aforementioned ordinance is of importance to parties who wish to commence any business operations in Curaçao after having realized a building project in Curaçao.

The Curaçao Waste Ordinance (Eilandsverordening vaste en chemische afvalstoffen)  stipulates rules with respect to disposal of domestic-, industrial- and other waste categories.
