The management should also appoint person/s within the facility with resposibility for maintenance and management of waste transfer and disposal documentation, such as the generation, collection, treatment and safe disposal of hazardous waste.
Written procedures on treatment of all types of wastes generated by the healtcare facility should be established and documented.
