The Authority has with effect from June, 2021 discontinued licensing for transporters of Scrap Iron Sheet. NEMA recommends that such (scrap iron sheet) be recycled into products that meet the standard set out by the Kenya Bureau of Standards.
With effect from June 4th, 2021, the Authority will only license transporters of Used Oil/Sludge who have licensed Used oil/sludge Treatment/ Disposal/recycling facilities. Third Party transporters will therefore not be eligible for licensing. This measure is aimed at curbing suspected cases of illegal used oil trafficking in the country.
Reference is made to the public notice dated 3rd May 2021 on suspension of processing of EIA reports for used and waste oil handling facilities.
The Authority has concluded investigations on the matter and appropriate interventions have been put in place.
Based on the above, the Authority hereby lifts the ban and notice the public resumption of processing EIA report for all proposed used and waste oil handling facilities as transfer stations, recycling plants and disposal sites.
