Résumé

These Regulations are made under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972. They implement, in relation to England, Article 8 of Council Directive 75/442/EEC on waste as respects an occupier of domestic property in relation to the household waste produced on the property. Regulation 2 amends section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Regulation 2(2) inserts a new section 34(2A) into the 1990 Act so as to impose a duty on an occupier of domestic property as respects the household waste produced on the property. The duty imposed is to take all such measures available to him as are reasonable in the circumstances to secure that any transfer by him of household waste produced on the property is only to an authorized person or to a person for authorized transport purposes. The amendments in regulations 2(3) to (6) are consequential on the amendment in regulation 2(2). In particular, the amendment in regulation 2(6) makes it a criminal offence for any person to fail to comply with the new duty imposed by the amendment in regulation 2(2). The amendments in regulations 3, 4 and 5 are also consequential on the amendment in regulation 2(2). In particular, the amendments in regulation 3 ensure that section 34B of the 1990 Act (power to search and seize vehicles etc), which is not in force at the date of these Regulations, will not apply where an offence has been committed as a result of a failure to comply with the duty imposed by the amendment in regulation 2(2). Section 34B is to be inserted into the 1990 Act by section 46 of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005.
