“The commission of the Ukrainian Ecology and Natural Resources Ministry has been conducting inspections at economic entities which were licensed by the ministry for hazardous waste disposal. The results were predictable: more than half of enterprises failed to perform the undertaken obligations,” Semerak said.
According to him, 74 economic entities were inspected in Kyiv, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions. The ministry is expected to continue inspecting hazardous waste disposal license holders in 2017.
A reminder that the enterprises involved in hazardous waste disposal should have brought their activities in line with new requirements within two months, according to the Licensing Terms adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on July 13, 2016.
