Segregation Packaging and Storage Guidelines for Healthcare Risk Waste – 3rd edition



This document offers guidance for a uniform system for the segregation and packaging of clinical/healthcare risk waste generated in the provision of patient care in the Republic of Ireland. It attempts to bring together good practice principles and the various regulatory requirements relating to waste generation and management. However, it does not purport to be a legal interpretation of such regulations.

This document has been superseded by the publication entitled Healthcare Waste Packaging Guidelines, published in 2010.
