Duty of Care

Gain essential knowledge to ensure you control the management of waste and comply with your waste Duty of Care obligations.


Duty of Care legislation applies to every business in the UK that produces, handles or controls waste. If your organisation is a licensed waste business or produces controlled waste then you have strict waste ‘duty of care’ obligations. That means you and any of your staff involved in the transport, handling, treatment, control or disposal of waste need to understand your responsibilities, how to comply with waste legislation, the waste code of practice and how to avoid waste crime.

  • comply with your waste duty of care, current waste legislation and the statutory code of practice
  • complete the required documentation, including waste transfer notes and waste audits
  • appreciate your role and that of others in directing how waste is managed and controlled
