Biomedical Waste Management (BMWM) is a public health problem. Every hospital is generating BMW needs to set up requisite BMW treatment facilities on site or ensure requisite treatment of waste at common treatment facility. The Ministry of Environment & Forests notified the situation of pollution and framed out the Biomedical Waste (management & handling) Rules, 1998 to protect the Environment Protection Act, 1986 (29 of 1986) in our country on 20th July 1998 vide notification number S.O. 630 (E) dated the 20th July, 1998, by the Government of India in the erstwhile Ministry of Environment and Forests. Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers conferred by section 6, 8 and 25 of the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 (29 of 1986), and in supersession of the Bio-Medical Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 1998, except as respects things done or omitted to be done before such suppression, the Central Government hereby makes the following rules, namely Bio-Medical Waste Management Rules, 2016, and (Amendment) Rules, 2018, were an update and simplification of BMW not only human health and safety but also to the environment for the current and future generations. Effective BMWM is not only a legal necessity but also a social responsibility. This article reviews the current perspectives on BMWM and rules, conventions and the treatment technologies used worldwide. Furthermore, developing models for the monitoring of hospital health-care waste practices and research into non-burn eco-friendly sustainable technologies, recycling and polyvinyl chloride-free devices will go in long way for safe carbon environment. Globally, greater research in BMWM is warranted to understand its growing field of public health importance.
