South Africa has introduced the draft of National Health Care Risk Waste Management Regulations. These Regulations monitor the management of health care risk waste, create requirements for the management of risk waste so it no longer constitutes a threat, ensures third party protection, and creates duties for waste generators, waste transporters, and waste managers. The Regulations also will create specific prohibitions on the disposal and treatment of health care risk waste. Additionally, provisions include the segregation, packaging, labeling and storage of risk waste, the duties of generators, transporters and managers, and penalties for non-compliance.
