The electronic waste transfer note system is due to launch tomorrow (29 January 2014).
Edoc is a free to use online system for recording business waste transfers and users anywhere in the UK will be able to create waste transfer notes online, exchange them with the other party and sign them electronically in a completely paperless transaction.
Chris Deed who is leading the implementation of Edocs, said: “The whole ethos behind Edoc is to create a simple, cost-effective means for businesses to comply with the duty of care for waste.
“Millions of individual business waste transfers are recorded every year, using up paper and taking up costly space, not to mention the administrative headache of filing, storing and searching for individual records if they are needed.”
The Edoc programme has been implemented by the Environment Agency.
