Obligation to notify relating to waste management

Special rules apply to transfrontier waste shipments. These were mainly introduced to prohibit illegal export of waste to developing countries. The shipment of waste between EU Member States is regulated under Regulation 1013/2006/EC. According to this Regulation, the exporting and importing state must each obtain a written permission from their responsible authority before any transfrontier shipment of waste. Varoius requirements are to be met depending on the type of waste and method of disposal:

  • Within the EU, non-hazardous waste known as "green list" waste is subject to general information
    requirements according to Article 18 VVA (German Waste Shipment Regulation):
  • Notifiable waste is subject to written notifications and consent according to Article 4 VVA u. A.
