Comments:The Government of India has published a Gazette notification on 20 Jul 1998 making all persons who generate, collect, receive, store, transport, treat, dispose or handle medical waste in any form responsible for handling the medical waste without any adverse effect to human health and the environment. Consequent to the publication of above Gazette Notification on Bio-medical Waste Management, it has become mandatory for various hospitals and health institutions to implement the rules. The rules are to come into effect by the beginning of December 1999 but not later than December 2002 depending upon the population of the town where the establishment is located and the bed strength of the hospital. Since Hospital Waste Management will be a perpetual problem in future, it was felt that there should be an all India Organization/Society comprising of experts/specialists from various disciplines involved in Hospital Waste Management. This Society will provide conceptual guidance and oversee scientific research for further development. With this important aspect in mind, the Registrar of Society at Delhi was approached for registration of 'Indian Society of Hospital Waste Management (ISHWM)'. It is with proud privilege, we announce the formation of Indian Society of Hospital Waste Management (ISHWM) with effect from 10 April 2000 and registered under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 with Registration Number 36939.
