    Our key goal is to meet the Client’s needs, not just to get a License

    Not all activities related to hazardous waste management shall be licensed. Sometimes Clients think they need to get a license, but in fact it is enough to conclude an agreement with another company that already has the Hazardous Waste Management License and transfer their waste to it. Unlike other law firms that work on the principle of “Do you want a license? Here’s your license”, we forecast the Clients’ true needs.
  • plus

    We have extensive experience in the field of waste management regulation

    To obtain the Hazardous Waste Management License, a company shall meet a number of criteria and obtain a number of certificates and permits. In particular, the Environmental Impact Assessment Report, the Permit for Air Pollutant Emissions, the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Certificate, etc. Our company can assist you not only in obtaining the License, but also in getting the necessary permits and certificates.
