BRIA:THE WASTE MANAGEMENT LICENSING (SCOTLAND) AMENDMENT REGULATIONS 2016: FINAL BUSINESS AND REGULATORY IMPACT ASSESSMENT

ISBN: 9781785449673

Assessment of the likely impact of the removal of exemptions to the licensing of the storage and treatment of small quantities of waste tyres

Executive Summary

This BRIA is an assessment of the likely impact of the Waste Management Licensing (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2016:

The Waste Management Licensing (Scotland) Regulations 2011 Regulations, prior to the amendments made by these Regulations, allowed operators to register a Paragraph 17 exemption to store up to 1,000 waste tyres (just under 10 tonnes) on a site at any one time, so long as they registered the exemption with SEPA. Operators often also register a complementary Paragraph 11 exemption, which allows the sorting, baling or shredding of up to 10 tonnes of waste tyres at any one time. The Waste Management Licensing (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2016 amend the 2011 Regulations so as remove those exemptions and, as such, the activities previously covered by the exemptions will require a waste management licence once these Regulations are in force (subject to transitional provisions).
