Environment Agency - Relaxation of rules around SIC codes
Environmental update 05/10/2011
The Environment Agency (EA) has released a position statement
clarifying the use of the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC)
code on hazardous waste consignment notes.
The EA has stated that it will not pursue breaches of the
requirement to include the SIC code on a consignment note. It will
also not pursue any corrections of the SIC code, if for example,
the 2007 publication of the SIC codes is provided on a consignment
note (the 2003 version of the code should only be used).
It is important that all other information is provided. This
position statement will be reviewed in September 2012.
