Q

What changes have been introduced to the waste Duty of Care by the new official guidance?

A

Defra’s new Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) on the waste Duty of Care was finally published on 11 February 2016. A draft version was put out for consultation last summer.

This final version of the ACOP extends to 13 pages but is still a lot less detailed than the 1999 guidance it replaces. In essence, it summarises the law in straightforward layman’s language and does not really extend beyond the basic requirements of the legislation.

While the new ACOP does not introduce any new duties, it does take account of the many changes to legislation that have been made since 1999.
