Legislation and import/export regulations vary widely from one country to another and are constantly evolving. This is incredibly complex at the global level and requires a partner with the level of expertise and scale to navigate this landscape.
Consider the depth of knowledge needed to pick up an asset, export it legitimately from that country, and import it legitimately into another country. Knowing what you can and cannot export/import. Knowing the transportation requirements. Knowing the regulatory agencies involved. Knowing the paperwork required and how to complete it. Knowing all of that for the country you need to import it into; and avoiding delays and penalties in the process.
Interwoven in this are international regulations and industry certifications; regulations like Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal and certifications like R2. You need a partner that can to manage the compliant flow and processing of every asset across local, regional, country level, and international laws/regulations as well as industry level standards. The complexity of this ecosystem is incredible.
