Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991 (S.I. 1991/2839) (“the principal Regulations”) to provide for local authorities in Scotland, acting in their capacities as waste collection authority and waste disposal authority to serve notices on persons who are required to keep written descriptions of transfer notes under the principal Regulations. Further, these regulations have the effect of providing for local authorities to require those persons to furnish such documents to them at their offices within a specified period of time. These powers are already exercisable by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in Scotland, and these Regulations have the effect of giving local authorities the same powers.
