EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)


Article 16 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 2037/2000 on substances that deplete the ozone layer requires the recovery of used controlled substances (as defined in Article 2 of the Regulation) in waste refrigeration and other equipment.

Regulation 12 of the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 provides for certain descriptions of plant to be treated as mobile plant for the purposes of Part II of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

These Regulations amend regulation 12 by adding a description of plant for the collection or storage of a controlled substance from waste items. This enables the Environment Agency to authorise mobile plant for the recovery of ozone depleting substances from waste refrigeration equipment, fire extinguishers and other items.
