Explanatory Note

These regulations amend the Landfill (Scotland) Regulations 2003 (the “principal Regulations”).

For the purposes of the principal Regulations “waste” is to be defined by reference to the definition of waste in Council Directive 75/442/EEC on waste and shall include any substance or category of substance listed in the European Waste Catalogue.

Regulation 4 amends regulation 19 of the principal Regulations so as to enable the prosecution of Scottish partnerships and partners of a Scottish Partnership or persons purporting to act in that capacity for offences under the principal Regulations.
