Abstract

With regard to waste disposal, the reference regulation is Royal Decree 1481/2001, which regulates the disposal of waste by landfilling, in addition to the MAM/304/2002 Order, which publishes the waste assessment and disposal operations and the European Waste List (LER, by its acronym in Spanish). As established in the Technical Guide for proper Use by Individual Protection Equipment Workers, ?the elimination in the national territory will be based on the principles of proximity and sufficiency (Article 16 of the Law 10/1998, of April 21st) to avoid the transfers of them, looking for more favorable economic conditions?. In the work plan will be detailed in written or graphic form, with the help of a plane or satellite photograph, the place intended for temporary storage of asbestos waste during the execution of the work. Until the management company responsible for the removal of the asbestos waste proceeds to manage the stored material, the company that stores them is responsible for them. There is also the possibility of being accredited as a small producer of hazardous waste. The contracted waste management company must be authorized by the different management bodies of the Autonomous Regions, and must be enabled for the LER codes relating to asbestos. In order to avoid fines or sanctions, it is necessary to require the contracted waste management company to be accredited as an authorized company. This certificate must be issued by the competent authority of each Autonomous Region. From the preventive point of view, working with accredited companies ensures and guarantees that the chain of custody of asbestos waste is respected and that the malpractice of companies that are not specialized and without legal accreditation for the activity is avoided. As established by current regulations, the place destined for the temporary storage of waste must be properly marked and delimited, restricting the access to it. In this regard, mention should be made of the Technical Note on Prevention of demolition operations, removal or maintenance with asbestos: practical examples, prepared by the National Institute for Safety and Hygiene at Work (INSHT, by its acronym in Spanish). This, in conjunction with the informative document on Waste with asbestos: from the producer to the manager, also written in collaboration with INSHT, are practical cases that include the entire process involved in a work of asbestos removal. It is recommended that the work plan includes the contract with the asbestos waste management company, so that dates, postage, etc. can be checked and everything is collected in a single document easy to consult.
