§ Mr. Baldry
The consignment note system under the Transfrontier Shipment of Hazardous Waste Regulations 1988 is designed to ensure that waste is disposed of safely at suitable facilities. It does not require consignees to identify the source of the hazardous waste. There have been very few shipments of waste from these countries and none of these has been consigned directly by the United States forces.
