Movement of Hazardous Waste within the State

The European Communities Shipments of Hazardous Waste Exclusively within Ireland Regulations 2011 (S.I. No. 324 of 2011), was introduced in July 2011 making Dublin City Council, National TFS Office, the sole authority for the administration of hazardous waste movements within Ireland.

These Regulations introduced a fundamental change to the previous C1 system with the move to an online Waste Transfer Form system.

This new Waste Transfer Form Administration System requires consignors to purchase and fill in their forms online – the information required is similar to that previously provided on a C1 form and payments are now online through Dublin City Council’s secure web site.

Information on how to register as a user of the system, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and instructions on how to purchase Waste Transfer Forms is available on the Dublin City Council Website through the following link:
