Our licenses and accreditations

Approved Battery Treatment Operator (ABTO) is a waste treatment site where treatment and recycling of waste batteries is carried out and has been granted approval by the Environment Agency. In addition to the recycling of batteries, it allows GSUK to produce official evidence notes for batteries recycled on site and to assist producers who need to satisfy their obligations as battery producers.

Authorised Approved Treatment Facility (AATF) is a waste treatment site that has approval to carry out the refurbishment or treatment of WEEE. In addition to the recycling of material, it allows GSUK to produce official evidence notes for WEEE recycled on site and assisting producers to satisfy their obligations under the WEEE Directive.

A company is a ‘producer’ of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) if they manufacture, import or re-sell EEE. GSUK are classified as a producer of materials that we re-market after recycling and registered with a compliance scheme to ensure we take responsibility for financing the treatment and recycling of materials.

Since the introduction of the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005, any company who produces hazardous waste must register with the Environment Agency. This registration ensures that GSUK are legislatively compliant and able to satisfy any potential liability of our customers.

Any company wishing to move waste or arrange for waste to be moved within Southern Ireland, requires additional certification within Ireland. However, unlike the UK the certification in Ireland requires not only the types of waste to be listed, it must also state the regions of the country where waste is to be collected from or transported through. By gaining this approval GSUK is able to offer compliance to all customers throughout Southern Ireland.

GSUK were one of the first companies within the industry to obtain this standard, and are pleased to ensure that day-to-day operations are always conducted within the Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure continued client satisfaction. By far the worlds most established quality framework and sets the standard not only for quality management systems, but management systems in general.

With significant legislative restrictions on the movement of waste across international borders, overseas cellular companies are often left in a position where they hold materials suitable for recycling, but are unable to export them to the UK. To ensure compliance, a Transfrontier Shipment Notification is required which can take as long as 6 months to arrange. By achieving Pre-consent approval, GSUK is able to obtain a TFS Notification for a customer within  seven days.

Since the introduction of the Controlled Waste Regulations 1991, any person or company that wishes to carry waste as part of a commercial activity has been required to register as a Waste Carrier. In addition, any person or company who wishes to arrange a third party carrier to collect waste on their behalf must register as a Waste Broker. This certificate confirms that GSUK hold both such approvals and can ensure legislative compliance with all movements of waste.

GSUK currently holds a Standard Rules 2008 No 23 Waste Permit for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). This permit not only increases the scope of waste materials that are permitted at the site, but also increases the total quantity to 75,000 tonnes per annum.
