Abstract

These Regulations amend the regulatory regime governing landfills in England and Wales for the purpose of implementing Council Decision 2003/33/EC establishing criteria and procedures for the acceptance of waste at landfills pursuant to Article 16 of and Annex II to Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste. The Decision supplements the requirements of the Directive by specifying detailed criteria and procedures for acceptance of waste for each class of landfill. These Regulations replace the existing waste acceptance criteria and waste acceptance procedures in the 2002 Regulations with those contained in the Decision with effect from 16 July 2005. They also make some minor amendments to the 2002 Regulations and the Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2000. Regulations 5 and 6 and Schedule 1 put in place the new waste acceptance criteria and procedures by amending relevant regulations of the 2002 Regulations and substituting a new Schedule 1. Regulations 7, 8 and 9 make some minor amendments, in particular to the transitional regime. Existing landfills which are required to apply for a new permit to bring their operations into compliance with the Regulations, must close if the application is unsuccessful for some reason.
