Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Special Waste Amendment (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (S.S.I. 2004/112) (“the amendment Regulations”) which in turn amend the Special Waste Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/972) (“the principal Regulations”) which make provision for handling special waste and for implementing Council Directive 75/442/EEC on waste (O.J. No. L 194, 25.7.75, p.8) and Council Directive 91/689/EC on hazardous waste (O.J. No. L 377, 3.12.91, p.20) (“the Hazardous Waste Directive”).

Regulation 2(10) of the amendment Regulations, which was made on 10th March 2004, inserts a new regulation 15A into the principal Regulations, which requires producers of special waste to keep a register which details the documents required to be kept in implementation of Article 4(2) of the Hazardous Waste Directive. Regulation 15A comes into force on 1st July 2004.

These Regulations correct an error in the amendment Regulations which requires a producer of special waste to enter into the register details of a producer return in relation to a consignment of special waste.
