Legislation Update: Hazardous Waste Guidelines

Hazardous Waste Guidelines

The HSE have issued updated guidelines relating to hazardous waste production. In 2009, the Hazardous Waste Regulations1 (the Regulations) were amended so that all places where hazardous waste is produced, collected or removed from should be considered to be “premises”. Premises in England and Wales where, in any 12 month period, more than 500 kg of hazardous waste is produced, collected, or removed from, must be registered. Similarly, when waste is collected from premises and taken to another location a consignment note is required.

This regulatory position statement allows certain places to be exempt from registration. In some cases these specified sites will also be allowed to move waste without a consignment note or the requirement for consignee returns in respect of those movements. The updated guidance includes mobile health care providers such as home visit staff where waste is produced at a location other than the providers base premises.
