Managing your hazardous waste

Hazardous waste environmental legislation

This page provides links to the full text of key pieces of environmental legislation relating to hazardous waste. The websites hosting the legislation may list amendments separately.

If you are setting up an environmental management system (EMS) for your business, you can use this list to start compiling your legal register. Your legal adviser or environmental consultant will be able to tell you if other environmental legislation applies to your specific business.

For more information about EMS, see our guide on environmental management systems (EMS) - the basics.
