(4) A consignment note or carrier’s schedule required by paragraph (1) or (2) to be kept in a register shall be retained in the register for not less than three years from the date on which the waste to which it relates was removed from the premises at which it was being held.

(5) Subject to paragraphs (6) and (7), consignment notes and carrier’s schedules required by paragraph (3) to be kept by a person shall be retained until his disposal licence for the site in question is surrendered or revoked entirely, at which time he shall send the register to the district council for the site; and that district council shall retain the register for not less than three years after its receipt.

(6) Where a disposal licence is not required (by virtue of paragraph 16D or 24 of Schedule 6 to the Waste Collection and Disposal Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992) for operations carried on at a site at which special waste is received, paragraph (5) shall have effect as if any reference to the surrender or revocation of a person’s disposal licence were a reference to the surrender or revocation of either his certificate of registration under the Alkali, &c. Works Regulation Act 1906(1), or his authorisation under the Industrial Pollution Control (Northern Ireland) Order 1997(2) for the site in question.

(7) Where, in circumstances other than those mentioned in paragraph (6), Article 5(1) of the 1978 Order does not apply to any of the activities carried on at a site at which special waste is received, each consignment note and carrier’s schedule required to be kept in a register shall be kept in that register for not less than three years from the date on which the consignment of special waste to which it relates was received at the site to which it was transported.
