Consignee returns: relaxation of reporting requirements for specified hazardous wastes (EA)

When hazardous waste is collected from one place and delivered to another, a consignment note is used to track the movement. Each individual consignment note has an associated fee payable to the Environment Agency. A summary of the details in the consignment notes received must be reported quarterly to us by the site receiving the waste (known as the consignee).

This regulatory position statement identifies the circumstances where the consignee doesn’t have to enter each individual consignment for movements of specified hazardous wastes, so allowing a reduction in charges. All other requirements of the Hazardous Waste Regulations still apply, including the requirement to complete consignment notes.
