This document contains an Approved Code of Practice and other supporting guidance on the duties in the Quarries Regulations 1999. The Regulations aim to protect those working at a quarry and others who may be affected by quarrying activities, eg those living, passing or working nearby, or visitors to the site.

The second edition has been revised to update legal references and to clarify the guidance on a small number of issues. The main substance of the guidance remains unchanged.
