Persistent Organic Pollutants (Various Amendments) Regulations 2019

Synopsis

These regulations will amend the Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Regulations 2007, Environment Act 1995 and Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 to implement the Recast Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulation (EU) 2019/1021.

Consignee returns submitted by waste recipients to producers or holders of hazardous waste need to state any wastes classed as POPs. References within these returns will need to reflect the 2019 POPs Regulation.

 
 
 

Summary

The Persistent Organic Pollutants (Various Amendments) Regulations 2019 amended the Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulations 2007 on 15 July 2019.

The 2019 regulations also amend the Environment Act 1995 and Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 on 12 August 2019.

What has been or will be updated?

The amendments implement the Recast Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulation (EU) 2019/1021.

Amendments to the Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulations 2007

The Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulations 2007 have been updated to reference the Recast Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 throughout, rather than the Regulation it revoked and replaced.

Amendments to the Environment Act 1995

The Environment Act 1995 is amended to reference the Recast Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 rather than the repealed Directive 79/117/EEC.

Amendments to the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005

Schedule 8 of the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 states information that must be provided in consignee returns to producers or holders of hazardous waste. Consignees are the recipients of hazardous waste. These returns are required to be provided within a month of the end of the quarter the hazardous waste consignment took place in.

The 2019 regulations replace Schedule 8. This adds references to the Recast Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulation (EU) 2019/1021. Where waste streams received include persistent organic pollutants (POPs) above the respective threshold, the return must state that this material is a POP.
