Supplementary Guidance to WM3


Business Associations in the chemical supply chain, including CBA, have developed supplementary guidance to WM3 covering the assessment and classification of wastes coming within the scope of the European Waste Framework Directive.

The Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency have welcomed the development of this guidance and have agreed to its adoption in England, Wales, and Scotland.

This industry guidance focuses on waste packaging and includes a flow chart designed to help companies assess whether packaging actually constitutes waste and whether it should be classified as hazardous or non hazardous. The guidance specifically provides criteria helping with the classification of empty packaging containing residues of hazardous substances.
