Defining clinical waste
Special Clinical Waste
The Special Waste Regulations 1996 and the Special Waste Amendment Regulations 2004 control hazardous clinical waste produced in Scotland.
In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, any part of clinical waste that contains an infectious element is termed ‘hazardous Waste’.
Non-Hazardous Clinical Waste
Clinical waste that does not pose an infection danger and that does not include other materials that might make the waste hazardous, such as cytotoxic. The regulations require that a qualified professional ensures that the waste is truly non-hazardous by carrying out a stringent risk assessment.
Offensive waste is non-hazardous but still requires special labelling, storage and disposal.
