Section 10 – Producer responsibility obligation regulations

The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Northern Ireland) Order 1998 gives the Department powers to make regulations obliging certain persons to undertake the re-use, recovery and recycling of products or materials. These powers include provision for entry and inspection, so that the Department can carry out its functions under the regulations.

This section amends existing legislation in order to provide a more precise definition of the Department’s powers of entry and inspection.
