These Regulations make amendments to legislation in the field of waste and, in particular, amend legislation relating to waste batteries and accumulators, end of waste criteria, packaging waste, end-of-life vehicle destruction certification, landfill acceptance criteria, the management of waste from extractive industries, and calculation methods for verifying recycling target compliance. Part 3 amends primary legislation, and Part 4 amends and revokes retained direct EU legislation.

Part 2 of these Regulations is made in exercise of the powers in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 (c. 68), and updates references to Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on waste (OJ No L 312, 22.11.2008, p 3) in Part 2 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (c. 43) and in section 37(2) of the Waste and Emissions Trading Act 2003 (c. 33).
