Contributions to the further development of the EC Waste Shipment Regulation [1.25 mb]
Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2006 on Shipments of Waste (Waste Shipment Regulation − WSR) transposes the requirements of the Basel Convention on the control of transboundary movements of hazardous wastes and their disposal as well as OECD Decision C (2001) 107 into Union law. Following international law the WSR prohibits certain transboundary shipments of waste and provides a procedural framework with two applicable types of procedures which are to be used depending on the waste concerned the planned method of waste management and the states involved. By 31 December 2020 the European Commission shall carry out a review of the WSR and if appropriate submit a legislative proposal. In this context the Commission will also assess inspection plans and their effectiveness in combating illegal shipments. Against this background the aim of the present project was to summarise and evaluate the implementation of the WSR in Germany with a focus on 1. identifying existing obstacles to an improved combat against illegal shipments and developing corresponding proposals; 2. making suggestions for more efficient enforcement; 3. outlining starting points for strengthening circular economy. In this report inspection plans adopted by the German federal states (Bundesländer) in accordance with Article 50(2a) of the WSR are assessed. Furthermore relevant topics relating to the application of the WSR are analysed and suggestions for measures are developed.
