Since November 2020, there is a requirement to report hazardous waste to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s electronic waste registry. This gives the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and supervisory authorities a clearer picture of the path of hazardous waste across the country. Hogia is now launching a job that will automate reporting to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. In addition to saving a lot of time, it also reduces the risk of errors.
“As far as we know, we are the first to introduce an automated waste reporting service,” says Henrik Aleborg, director of construction and civil engineering transportation operations at Hogia Logistics Systems.
We want to help our customers comply with environmental requirements in a seamless manner. When we noticed that the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s registration portal was seen as cumbersome and time-consuming, we chose to create an automated service, by integrating it into existing programmes. Through this service, our clients can also prepare reports for their clients.
Manual registration of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency portal requires logging in with a bank ID every time. Details such as waste code, size, waste product, carrier, recipient and date must be specified. If the transport contains different things, such as fluorescent lights, batteries, light bulbs and gasoline, each item must be identified separately, even if they all belong to the same mode of transport.
Manual reporting on the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency portal takes at least five minutes for an experienced administrator. In our system, it only takes a minute and the risk of errors is greatly reduced because you can stay there and not have to change the environment. Henrik Aleborg concludes that it creates a flow between applications, transfers and registration.
