Guidance on the Special Waste (Amendment) Regulations 1996, providing technical advice on the new definition of special waste and clarifying the meaning of non-special household waste, has been published today.

The guidance revises the technical guidelines used to assess whether a consignment of waste is special and explains changes to procedures to be followed by those who handle special waste.

The Special Waste (Amendment) Regulations were made on 1 August and will come into effect on 31 August. They amend the Special Waste Regulations 1996, which set out controls over the management, transport and disposal of the most difficult and dangerous waste.

Copies of the amending regulations are being sent to the new unitary authorities, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and representative bodies for industry.
