Virtual online courses
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.

Now in its 14th year, the course covers the approaches needed to ensure legal compliance with waste-related laws and the implications for the day-today management of wastes. Attendance will help to demonstrate ‘reasonable actions’ to comply with waste legislation and this can help to manage risks associated with a range of waste legislation, including environmental permitting and related exemptions, duty of care and hazardous wastes management.


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 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. We have seen the introduction of the new Environment Act which contains amongst other features new systems for tracking waste under duty of care that will obviate the need for controlled waste transfer notes. At the same time concerns over description of wastes, especially those from waste screening activities (e.g. trommel fines) have led to extensive audits of a large number of permitted waste facilities by the Environment Agency. This course will examine these changes in detail and will put them into the context of currently applicable controls and will provide a summary of their potential impacts. Topics to be addressed will include:

  • An update on wastes classification, duty of care and related guidance, including developments in waste tracking.
  • Proposed Changes on waste carriers and broker controls including technical competence.
  • Changes to a range of standard rule permit and Exemptions.
  • An update on key changes to Regulatory Position Statements and Low Risk Waste Guidance.
  • A summary on classification of Mirror Entries for Hazardous Wastes.
  • Plastics Tax
  • Overview of Simpler Recycling/ Consistent Collections for Household and Municipal wastes
  • Overview on introduction of Extended Producer Responsibility and Modulated fees for packaging

Who Should Attend?
All those with responsibility for ensuring waste legal compliance within their business and those who are seeking to improve their understanding of current and recently emerging waste law. The course will be relevant to new practitioners as well as those with more experience.
