Short description: Defra, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Environment Agency are undertaking a review of the exemptions from waste management licensing. Exemptions have generally proved to be successful in helping to regulate waste management activities in England and Wales in a proportionate way. The Government and the Welsh Assembly Government are therefore looking to continue to make use of exemptions from permitting and to develop a transparent, consistent way of doing so. This review does not affect the position in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The aim of the review is to provide a more risk-based and proportionate approach to the regulation of waste recovery and disposal operations, complementing the proposed new environmental permitting and compliance regime (EP). This discussion paper aims to facilitate engagement with stakeholders on the review.
