Title: Draft waste regulation strategy : Environment Agency functional strategies. Consultation document
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This report is the consultation document of the Waste Management and Regulation strategy. The first significant body of legislation directed specifically at the management of wastes was introduced during the 1970s. The legislation was revised and considerably extended by the Environmental Protection Art 1990. The regulatory framework for waste management and regulation is, therefore, relatively recent in comparison with other Agency pollution prevention and control functions such as Integrated Pollution Control and Water Quality. Until the formation of the Environment Agency, on 1 April 1996, regulatory powers for waste management were vested at local authority level, with links to the land use planning powers of the local authorities. The Governments waste strategy is possible only through the creation of the Environment Agency with its ability to operate in a nationally consistent manner. The EA has, therefore, a key role in the development and implementation of the Governments strategy.
