Waste Pre-acceptance Audits

Did you know that as a healthcare waste producer you are obliged to complete a healthcare waste pre-acceptance audit?


Waste pre-acceptance audits are required for healthcare waste to ensure that all waste streams are appropriately segregated and packaged for their disposal or recovery route.

This in turn ensures that healthcare providers choose the best environmental solution for all of their waste streams.

Did you know that if you fail to provide an audit to your waste contractor then you will be helping them break the law – and they may refuse to accept your waste?
