Schedule 2—Controlled waste characteristics


Dangerous Goods Class (UN Class*)

UN Code*

Characteristic

1

H1

Explosive

An explosive substance or waste is a solid or liquid substance or waste (or mixture of substances or wastes) which is in itself capable by chemical reaction of producing gas at such a temperature and pressure and at such a speed as to cause damage to the surroundings.

3

H3

Flammable Liquids

The word "flammable" has the same meaning as "inflammable". Flammable liquids are liquids, or mixtures of liquids, or liquids containing solids in solution or suspension (for example, paints, varnishes, lacquers, etc, but not including substances or wastes otherwise classified on account of their dangerous characteristics) which give off flammable vapour at temperatures of not more than 60.5 degrees Celsius, closed‑cup test, or not more than 65.6 degrees Celsius, open‑cup test. (Since the results of open‑cup tests and of closed‑cup tests are not strictly comparable and even individual results by the same test are often variable, regulations varying from the above figures to make allowances for such differences would be within the spirit of the definition.)

4.1

H4.1

Flammable solids

Solids or waste solids, other than those classified as explosives, which under conditions encountered in transport are readily combustible, or may cause or contribute to fire through friction.

4.2

H4.2

Substances or wastes liable to spontaneous combustion

Substances or wastes which are liable to spontaneous heating under normal conditions encountered in transport, or to heating up in contact with air, and being then liable to catch fire.

4.3

H4.3

Substances or wastes which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases

Substances or wastes which, by interaction with water, are liable to become spontaneously flammable or to give off flammable gases in dangerous quantities.

5.1

H5.1

Oxidising

Substances or wastes which, while in themselves not necessarily combustible, may, generally by yielding oxygen, cause or contribute to, the combustion of other materials.

5.2

H5.2

Organic peroxides

Organic substances or wastes which contain the bivalent‑O‑O‑ structure are thermally unstable substances which may undergo exothermic self‑accelerating decomposition.

6.1

H6.1

Poisonous (acute)

Substances or wastes liable either to cause death or serious injury or to harm human health if swallowed or inhaled or by skin contact.

6.2

H6.2

Infectious substances

Substances or wastes containing viable micro‑organisms or their toxins which are known or suspected to cause disease in animals or humans.

8

H8

Corrosives

Substances or wastes which, by chemical action, will cause severe damage when in contact with living tissue, or in the case of leakage, will materially damage, or even destroy, other goods or the means of transport; they may also cause other hazards.

9

H10

Liberation of toxic gases in contact with air or water

Substances or wastes which, by liberation with air or water, are liable to give off toxic gases in dangerous quantities.

9

H11

Toxic (delayed or chronic)

Substances or wastes which, if they are inhaled or ingested or if they penetrate the skin, may involve delayed or chronic effects, including carcinogenity.

9

H12

Ecotoxic

Substances or wastes which if released present or may present immediate or delayed adverse impacts to the environment by means of bioaccumulation and/or toxic effects upon biotic systems.

9

H13

Capable of yielding another material which possesses H1‑H12

Capable by any means, after disposal, of yielding another material, eg. leachate, which possesses any of the characters listed above.







Other reasons

Potential to have a significant adverse impact on ambient air quality.

Potential to have a significant adverse impact on ambient marine, estuarine or fresh water quality.

Schedule 4—Revocation of environment protection policy constituted of National Environment Protection (Movement of Controlled Waste between States and Territories) Measure

The environment protection policy constituted of the National Environment Protection (Movement of Controlled Waste between States and Territories) Measure is revoked.

Note—

The National Environment Protection (Movement of Controlled Waste between States and Territories) Measure came into operation as an environment protection policy under section 28A(1) of the Act and continued in operation under Schedule 1 clause 4(a) of the Environment Protection (Miscellaneous) Amendment Act 2005 despite the repeal of section 28A by that Act.

The Measure has been amended and this policy implements the amendments as contemplated by section 29(1a) of the Act. For the purposes of section 29(1b) of the Act, the Minister is satisfied that the provisions of this policy that are not included in or required by the Measure relate to the enforcement of the policy (including the imposition of penalties for contravention of the policy) or are otherwise necessary for the application of the policy in this jurisdiction.
