The EWC Search Facility offers three options to identify the right code:
- Search by Chapter/Industry – You may try the Chapter option to go through the process of identifying the right chapter, sub-chapter then code. Please follow the Guidelines laid out below for this process. When you have identified the right code, you may click on the text Description to show the keyword entries related to the code. If you then click on ‘Select’ to save the code, you can go through the process again to identify another code.
- Search by Code – You may search for a chapter using the ‘Search by Code’ option by entering a specific code associated with the chapter. Please enter a code eg ‘01’ or ‘10 01 01’ and click ‘Search’. Then click on the most appropriate keyword description to identify the relevant code(s).
- Search by Text – You may try the ‘Search by Text’ by entering a description of your waste to see if the EPA have identified it against a specific code. Please enter a description eg ‘waste’ or ‘treatment’ and click ‘Search’. Then click on the most appropriate keyword description to identify the relevant code(s).
