2016 Changes to Hazardous Waste Registration

13th January 2016

 

Changes to Premises Registration and the Consignment Note Number format

 

The Environment Agency are making changes that will affect premises registered with the Environment Agency as hazardous waste producers.

Two aspects of the hazardous waste regulations are changing on 1 April 2016, which, if a Hazardous Waste Producer, you will need to prepare for:

·         Producers of hazardous waste in England will no longer need to notify their premises with the Environment Agency.

·         The format of the unique consignment note code, which appears on every consignment note, will change.

A copy of Frequently Asked Questions is attached, which should help explain the changes.

WM3 Hazardous Waste Classification

23rd July 2015

The Environment Agency has now published it's WM3 Guidelines for Classification of Hazardous Wastes. Although this revised guidance does not have a significant impact on classification of Empty, Uncleaned Packaging (as per agreed definitions within WM2) it does clarify the classification of what is Hazardous.
The requirement for Empty, Uncleaned packaging with hazardous residues to be consigned under EWC 15-01-10*  remains unchanged - although consideration should be given to the intended handling and use of used packaging, as certain forms of reuse do not fall within the waste classification.
