HazDoc – New agency website for electronic consignment note development

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency, the Environment Agency, Northern Ireland Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales have launched a website, named HazDoc, which allows businesses to follow progress and comment on the development of a new electronic consignment note system for hazardous waste.

The four agencies conducted a series of workshops through the summer aimed at informing businesses on their plans for the development of the new system.

HazDoc aims to develop an electronic system for tracking hazardous waste in the UK which is simple to use, removes the reporting burden for businesses, supports effective regulation and provides all parties with good quality data.

HazDoc is the complementary system to eDoc, the electronic Duty of Care, which captures information on transfer of non-hazardous waste.
