Virtual On-Line Course:

These courses are run using the Zoom platform as an interactive course just as our live courses would be. We have had great feedback from delegates on these courses.

Waste management legislation is complex and rapidly-changing; failure to comply and to manage wastes effectively can result in serious pollution and this has been recognised in the recent establishment of a waste crime unit within the Environment Agency.

It is therefore important to ensure that you have a good understanding of the key legal requirements AND their implications for day to day wastes management and in relation to this controls under ‘Duty of Care’ play an absolutely fundamental role in compliance. Government and Regulators are working on a number of changes including new systems for tracking waste under duty of care that will obviate the need for controlled waste transfer notes. This course will examine these changes in detail and will put these changes into the context of currently applicable controls and will provide a summary of their potential impacts. Topics to be addressed will include:

  • Key legal requirements of EPA s33 and 34 and related Regulations;
  • Definition of waste and its relevance;
  • Fundamentals of waste classification including use of the European Waste Catalogue;
  • The Code of Practice; Its relevance and implications;
  • Auditing for compliance – key information requirements;
This material is presented in a way that identifies the legal obligations of all those managing waste and provides practical solutions for waste management practices in the light of these legal requirements. By attending this seminar, delegates can make an immediate impact on waste compliance practices within their organisation helping to provide confidence that Duty of Care obligations are being met, and that associated risks are being managed effectively and efficiently.

Who Should Attend?
All those with responsibility for ensuring waste legal compliance and auditing within their business. The course will be relevant to new practitioners and those with more experience, but who may have little formal training.

On completion of the course, attendees will:
  • Have an appreciation of the practical implications of Duty of Care on managing wastes on a day-to-day basis;
  • Appreciate potential future changes to waste tracking and related practical implications; and
  • Be aware of key information requirements for auditing purposes and an understanding of why audits are an essential requirement for demonstrating compliance.
