These Regulations amend the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994.

Regulation 3 and Schedule 1 amend the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 for the purposes of providing new exemptions for the treatment and for the storage of WEEE, amending existing exemptions and making other amendments to the Regulations.
