The Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Environmental Affairs Forum in proud partnership with Norton Rose Fulbright, SLR and IWMSA's KZN Branch invite you to attend an educational and informative Waste Legislation seminar.

Presentation One:
Industry Waste Management Plans, by Matthew Thornton-Dibb of Norton Rose Fulbright

The Minister of Environmental Affairs has, in terms of the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008 (Act No. 59 of 2008), required the Paper & Packaging Industry, the Electrical and Electronic Industry and the Lighting Industry to prepare and submit industry waste management plans for approval. Mr Thornton-Dibb will unpack the practicalities of complying with requirements to adopt and implement Industry Waste Management Plans. He will also speak to the legal considerations associated with Industry Waste Management Plans.

Presentation Two:
Challenges with the Waste Act, by Matthew Hemming of SLR Consulting

The National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008 has been in place since 2009. It set out to reform the law regulating waste and improve waste management in South Africa. Has it done this? Mr Hemming will speak on his experiences with the Waste Act and how in some ways it possibly hinders more than promotes sound waste management.
