Temporary Regulatory Guidance on waste generated as a result of Lateral Flow Device (LFD) mass testing and LFD self-testing

Date published: 30 March 2021


All sites have a waste management ‘Duty of Care’ and are responsible for undertaking a specific WM3 assessment for the classification of the waste that they will generate (if not identified in the table below).

You will find guidance on all aspects of this in the document below.
