You will require this permit if you intend to transport prescribed waste. Prescribed wastes include potentially hazardous wastes, but also wastes that may affect amenity (such as the impact of odour).
You must hold a permit for each vehicle you intend to carry prescribed waste, and will need to complete one application form per vehicle. The Agency may inspect your vehicle's suitability for transporting prescribed waste after your application has been assessed.
Each industrial waste producer must give the holder of this permit a complete transport certificate with each load of industrial waste that leaves the premise. The permit holder must also complete a transport certificate and then provide all information to the receiver of the industrial waste.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
