WM3 Implementation: The law changes from 1st July 2015

The Hazardous Waste (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2015 were laid before Parliament on Tuesday and will implement the changes outlined in WM3 from 1st July 2015.

This will affect the way in which wastes and hazardous waste in-particular are classified, aligning the hazard categories to those for supply purposes under CLP, which is an implementation of the UN GHS.

As discussed in previous blog posts listed under the “Hazardous Waste” tab.

To allow a smooth change-over to the new regs, WM3 can now be used, in accordance with EA Positions Statement 193.

If we can be of any assistance in the coming weeks please do not hesitate to get in contact.

Our WM3 on-site training courses have been a great success and we can  provide help for specific classification queries via phone or email.
