Compliance with the EPR 5.07 – Clinical Waste guidance

Are you struggling with complying with the EPR 5.07 – Clinical Waste guidance?

The EPR 5.07 applies to all waste management facilities that are permitted to accept clinical waste.

Albion Environmental Ltd has a dedicated team of qualified trainers and expert Consultants with experience on healthcare waste management. We have been providing support to many NHS Trusts across Scotland which includes the delivery of comprehensive site audits as required.

Under the EPR 5.07, facilities handling healthcare wastes must: ‘focus on preventing emissions by providing appropriate measures for waste storage, handling and dispatch. This applies to all facilities that manage clinical waste and is intended to reduce the potential for spillage, resulting in the release of fluids, solids, aerosols and litter; odour; infestation by pests; interference by trespassers’.

If you are a permit holder and need some support to demonstrate you comply with storage, handling and dispatch requirements, we have prepared a simple showing key points you need to make sure are covered by your daily activities.
