EXTRACT FROM THE DUTY OR CARE – CODE OF PRACTICE

C1. The environmental protection duty of care regulations 1991 made under section 34, (5) of the Act require all those subjects of the duty to make records of waste that receive and consign, keep the records and make them available to waste regulations authorities.
C2. The regulations also require the parties to complete sign and keep a transfer note. The transfer note contains information about the waste and about the parties to the transfer.
C3. While all transfers of waste must be documented nothing in the regulations required each individual transfer to be separately documented. In the case for example, where weekly or daily collections of waste from outside shops or commercial premises, or the removal of a large heap of waste by multiple lorry trips, this would be unrealistic because of the number of individual loads and the absence of any necessary contact between the parties to one such transfer.
It would be reasonable for a single transfer note to cover multiple consignments of waste transferred at the same time or over a period not exceeding one year, provided that the description and all of the details on the transfer note (who and what the parties are) the same for all consignments covered by the note. A single transfer note could not cover a series of transfers between different holders no transfers of wastes of different descriptions.
C4. The regulations require these records both the descriptions and the transfer notes to be kept for at least two years, holders must provide copies of these records if requested by the waste regulations authority.
C5. One purpose of documentation is to create an information source of use to other holders. It is open to holders to ask each other for details from records, especially to check what happened to waste after it was consigned. A holder might draw conclusions and the work the waste regulator authority to any suspected breach of the duty if such a request was refused.
