(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 and the Waste Management Licensing (Amendment etc.) Regulations 1995.
Regulation 2 extends from 31st July 1995 to 31st March 1996 a transitional exemption from waste management licensing for certain activities involving the biological or physico-chemical treatment of waste where the person carrying on the activities has done so since before 1st May 1994 and those activities were not subject to licensing under Part I of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 (c. 40).
Regulation 3 similarly extends the transitional period during which regulation 4 of the 1994 Regulations (persons only to be treated as technically competent to manage certain waste facilities if holding a relevant certificate of technical competence) does not apply to a person to whom the transitional exemption from licensing applies.
