The Code of Practice applies to you if you produce, carry, keep, dispose of, treat, import or have control of waste in England or Wales.
The law requires anyone dealing with waste to keep it safe, make sure it’s dealt with responsibly and only given to businesses authorised to take it.
If you’re authorised or registered in Scotland or Northern Ireland but you store, transport or transfer waste in England or Wales, you should also take account of this code.
This code is issued under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
