Overview of Authorization for Import of Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste can pose serious threats to both humans and the environment if not handled and disposed of properly. Hazardous waste management involves the collection, recycling, treatment, disposal, and transportation of wastes, and proper authorization is required for these processes. If an individual wishes to import hazardous waste, they need to obtain authorization from the appropriate authority.

Hazardous waste can come in different forms and can be classified based on their biological, chemical, and physical properties. Hazardous Waste Management Rules have been established to ensure the secure handling, generation, processing, treatment, import, storage, transportation, and disposal of hazardous waste. State Pollution Control Boards/ Pollution Control Committees are responsible for overseeing most aspects of hazardous waste generation, handling, and disposal. Certain types of hazardous waste can be imported with prior informed consent and without such consent, and a list of these waste types is provided by the appropriate authority.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
