The Environment Agency is holding a seminar for delegates at Energy & Environment Expo to introduce edoc (electronic duty of care) – the innovative new online technology for recording the movement of commercial and industrial waste – while highlighting how it can help to reduce costs in waste management.

Since launch in January this year more than 1000 businesses across the UK have registered to use edoc. It is designed to provide businesses with an easy, simple and cheap alternative to paper waste transfer notes (WTNs) while enabling businesses to comply with their legal duty of care efficiently and quickly.

Chris Deed, edoc programme manager at the Environment Agency who will be giving the talk at Energy & Environment Expo, said “We are delighted with the response we’ve had on edoc so far.  It’s not a mandatory system, but it is free to use.

The level of interest we have had from businesses and organisations from a cross-section of sectors suggests that people understand, accept and embrace the system and the wide range of benefits it can offer.”

The seminar which will take place on Thursday 19th June from 13.40 – 14.10 is designed to highlight easy it is to use edoc and the benefits it can have on businesses – helping them to save time, money and reduce their administrative burden.

Developed by the Environment Agency in partnership with the waste sector and government bodies from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, edoc (short for electronic duty of care) provides a modern and efficient alternative to completing and keeping paper WTNs.
