Wales implements hazwaste regime

Two sets of regulations, one setting out the rules for the control and tracking of hazardous waste movements, the other implementing the classifications of hazardous waste set out in the European Waste Catalogue, were issued by the Welsh Assembly in July.1

Like those issued for England in April (ENDS Report 363, p 52 ), the regulations came into force on 16 July. The Scottish Executive introduced the new classification system last year (ENDS Report 351, pp 42-43 ), but, like Northern Ireland, has not introduced requirements for hazardous waste producers to "notify" premises producing hazardous waste.

Meanwhile, regulations correcting minor errors in the List of Wastes (England) Regulations 2005 were issued in June.2
