Regulations 4 to 14 contain provisions dealing with applications for registration, the circumstances in which registration may be refused, the information to be included in the register, the provision of certificates of registration and copies of entries, amendment of the register, revocation of registration, the duration of registration and the production of a person’s authority to transport controlled waste.

Regulations 15 to 18 deal with the procedure for appeals against refusal of registration, failure to deal with an application for registration and the revocation of registration.
