Two aspects of the Hazardous Waste Regulations changed on 1st April 2016.
Firstly, producers of hazardous waste in England no longer need to register their premises with the Environment Agency.
Secondly, the format of the unique consignment note code, which appears on every consignment note, has changed. These changes only apply to England.
To accommodate the removal of premises registration, the format of the consignment note code changed on 1 April 2016 regardless of the amount of hazardous waste produced, stored or handled. The first 6 letters of the consignment note code, currently the premises registration number, will be replaced with the first six letters or number (not symbols) of the company name. Companies whose name is less than six letters will have a filler letter to insert in the remaining spaces.
