Registration of Carrier Guidance

Applying for Registration as a Carrier of, Broker of, or Dealer in controlled waste. Carriers, Brokers and Dealers businesses carrying controlled waste as part of their business or for profit are required to register as a carrier. Most businesses arranging to dispose or recover waste for others are required to register as a broker. Most businesses using an agent to buy and then sell waste need to register as a dealer.

Businesses that only transport, broker or deal in certain types of waste and some organisations are eligible to register as ‘Lower Tier’. All other people must register as ‘Upper Tier’.

Each of the ROC registrations (new or renewal) will require you to sign in using a Government Gateway or NIDA account. If you do not have a Government Gateway or NIDA account, then there is a link to register for one.
