Clinical Waste Regulations

The clinical waste which organisations and businesses within the healthcare sector produce is subject to a large amount of legislation. This is because much of the clinical waste they produced is classified as hazardous waste under UK law. Therefore, correctly disposing of clinical waste can prove to be a complex and sometimes confusing process for the businesses that produce it. At Big Green, our team of experienced waste experts can offer you the specialist advice your business requires to navigate its way through the myriad of clinical waste regulations which exist. When you partner with us, we will ensure you comply fully with UK waste regulations, allowing you to enjoy complete peace of mind.

There are numerous pieces of legislation and a multitude of regulations which relate to the storage, collection and disposal of clinical waste. An extensive, but though exhaustive, list of the legislation and regulation includes:

The Environmental Protection Act 1990
Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005
List of Wastes Regulations 2005
Environmental protection (Duty of Care) regulations 2003
The Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011
Carriage Of Dangerous Goods Regulations 2009
Controlled Waste Regulations 2012
Hazardous Waste Directive 2011

With a considerable amount of legislation relating to the disposal of clinical waste, you could perhaps forgive many producers of clinical waste for finding it difficult to ensure that adhere to the requirements of the legislation. However, the punishment for businesses and organisations who fail to fully comply with the regulations is severe and can result in unlimited fines being imposed.

The department of health advises that producers of clinical waste work with authorised waste management services to ensure that their waste is dealt with in compliance with all relevant legislation and regulation.
