Waste Regulation SIG

Waste Regulation


The purpose of this Special Interest Group is to act as a forum for information exchange relating to legislation and regulation of the resource and waste management industry within the UK.


To achieve its aim the Special Interest Group will:

  • Ensure that members are kept up-to-date with emerging legislation both International and the UK (including Ireland), relating to all aspects of resource and waste management.
  • Share information on environmental matters concerning waste regulation.
  • Provide guidance and specify training requirements for better waste regulation as part of a process of continuous improvement for waste regulation professionals.
  • Respond where necessary to consultation documents issued by Government and International bodies relating to waste regulation.
  • Liaise with Government departments, regulators and other organisations working within the waste regulation sector, from the UK and Ireland.
  • Co-operate with other CIWM technical and strategic groups and those within the wider industry with regard to information dissemination to avoid duplication of efforts.
  • Act as a resource of technical expertise to the Chartered Institution in relation to policy, legislation and practice on the subject of waste regulation.

Steering Committee

The work of the Special Interest Group is co-ordinated by a steering committee that reports to the CIWM Scientific & Technical Committee.


Membership is open to anyone with an interest in waste regulation and related sectors including students and those with "grass roots" practical experience.  CIWM membership is not a pre-requisite, although we hope that this will be a natural progression for those interested in keeping up-to-date with information and progression of their career.
