The Liquid and Hazardous Wastes Code of Practice

The original Code of Practice was developed in 2003 by the liquid and hazardous waste industry to raise standards within the industry. Liquid Waste Contractors are able to be audited to become Code Compliant. This provides waste generators and regulators with an assurance that a high level of service delivery across all aspects of the contractors business is being maintained.

A significant level of support for the development of the original Code of Practice was provided by the New Zealand Water and Wastes Association (now Water New Zealand).
 
The Ministry for the Environment also gave support and encouragement to the development of the Code of Practice and further on-going initiatives. Funding for the Liquid and Hazardous Waste Code of Practice and the initial pilot trial of WasteTRACK was supplied by the Sustainable Management Fund.

In 2012 an updated and revised Liquid and Hazardous Wastes Code of Practice was published. The Code is available on the WasteMINZ website.

The Ministry for the Environment has continued to encourage and support the use of WasteTRACK and the implementation of the Code of Practice. For more information please go to the Ministry for the Environment’s website

The establishment of the Liquid and Hazardous Waste Operators Certification Council in 2007 has enabled liquid waste operators to be audited against the requirements of the Code and to become Code Compliant. Code compliancy provides waste generators and regulators with an assurance that a high level of service delivery across all aspects of the contractors business is being maintained.

The Code Compliancy programme is operated by WasteMINZ and further information on this can be viewed at on the Liquid & Hazardous Waste Sector page
