The following applies to asbestos waste in the UK and Europe. From 1st January 2015 the descriptions of Asbestos in ADR have changed, as per our post on ADR updates. We have updated the guidance below to reflect this.

When is asbestos dangerous goods under ADR (road transport) and is waste containing asbestos always hazardous? Check out our flow diagram and please contact us if you require any help or advice.

Hazardous waste requirements apply under the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005, as amended 2009 as applicable in England & Wales (slightly different rules apply in Scotland and NI and the waste will be classed as “special waste” instead of “hazardous waste”).
