The course covers the approaches needed to ensure legal compliance with waste related laws and the implications for the day-to-day 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/ exemptions, duty of care and hazardous wastes management.

Waste management legislation is complex and rapidly changing, and failure to comply can land your organisation and those responsible for any breach, in court.

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. In 2019 Government and Regulators are consulting on a number of changes including the collection of busness recyclable waste, extended producer responsibility for packaging, taxes on plastic packaging and the introduction of deposit-return schemes; this will be in addition to continuing work on exemptions to environmental permitting. We also expect to see further changes to guidance on waste classification (WM3), together with new proposals for the registration of carriers, brokers and dealers. 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:

· An update on wastes classification and related guidance;
· Changes to exemptions under environmental permitting, including new fees, waste descriptions, and storage and treatment capacities;
· The duty of care and potential changes to the movement and tracking of wastes in a way that will obviate the need for transfer notes;
· Consideration of new technical competence considerations for waste carriers, brokers and dealers.
· Extended producer responsibility for packaging; and
· Collection of business recyclable waste

The 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 new legal requirements. By attending this seminar, delegates can make an immediate impact on waste compliance practices within their organisation helping to provide confidence that legal 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 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 and those with more experience, but who may have little formal training.
