NOTICE OF CERTIFICATE RENEWAL ON THE GAUTENG WASTE INFORMATION SYSTEM (GWIS) FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE GENERATORS IN EXCESS OF 20KG PER DAY REGARDING THE REMOVAL OF EXPIRING DATE ON THE CERTIFICATE

Please note that as from October 2016 the Department has removed the expiry date on the certificates for all hazardous waste generators who are registered on the GWIS. The reasons for the amendment of the certificates of the aforementioned activity are as follow:

a. Hazardous waste generators are not required to report the amount of waste generated on the GWIS, as their waste is reported by the waste management facilities;
b. The Department is in the process of developing the new Gauteng Waste Information Regulation in terms of Chapter 8, section 70 of the National Environmental Management Waste Act, 59 of 2008. The new Regulations will address the current amendment on the hazardous waste generator certificate.

Therefore, hazardous waste generators are no longer required to renew their certificates. Updated certificates will be automatically sent by the system or can be requested from the Department.

For more information, please contact the project manager: Ms. Khensani Mahatlani on 011 240 3155 or Khensani.Mahatlani@gauteng.gov.za
