Cross Border Movement of Hazardous Wastes

SEPA has just issued a reminder to the Hazardous Waste Treatment and Transfer Industry Sector Group regarding the cross border movement of hazardous waste. 

 

All special (hazardous) waste produced in Scotland must be consigned using paperwork containing a unique code (SA/SB/SC) issued by SEPA (regardless of its final destination within the UK).

Consignees in England and Wales who receive special (hazardous) waste are required, under regulation 5 to Schedule 7 of the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005, to send a copy of the completed deposit note to SEPA. In line with the requirements placed on Scottish based consignees SEPA expects that notes be returned in a timely manner.

SEPA’s guidance on consigning special waste explains operators’ obligations in more detail.
