If your business is hoping to achieve the environmental standard ISO14001 accreditation, you must obtain an audit trail for any lamps legally required to be recycled in accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive.
The ISO14001 assessor will need to see a consignment note from a registered waste carrier, showing the number of lamps removed and the route of disposal. Businesses need to insist that their lighting maintenance contractor provides them with this paper trail. If the Environment Agency is investigating any contamination in the vicinity, it will expect businesses to demonstrate the correct method of disposal.
Quicklight provides a national lighting maintenance service all over the UK. It is a registered waste carrier and is accredited with ISO14001. As a matter of course, Quicklight issues its customers with consignment notes for the lamps it removes and recycles under the WEEE directive.
