Within the last month there have been changes to the way waste is classified, brought about by amendments to the Classification, Labeling and Packaging Regulations. Certain descriptions have changed, for example, Risk phrases have been replaced by Hazard Statements and their thresholds are different.
Most importantly for those handling waste batteries, Hazard codes have been replaced with Hazardous Properties, so to ensure continued compliance you need to review the classification of the waste leaving your site and the information you put on your Consignment Note. This can be done using the new guidance WM3, or customers of our sister company, G & P Batteries, can call them for assistance.
