Waste shipments

International law on waste shipments

Pre-consented facilities for waste recovery

Following the OECD Decision on transboundary movements of waste for recovery operations, Article 14 of Regulation No 1013/2006 provides that the competent authorities of destination which have jurisdiction over specific recovery facilities may decide to issue pre-consents to such facilities. This means that the authority of destination will not raise objections concerning shipments of certain types of waste to the facility, and as a consequence the time limit for objections by the authorities of dispatch and transit is shortened to 7 working days.

OECD has made available a new database of Transboundary Movements of Wastes destined for recovery operations which contains inter alia relevant information on pre-consented facilities.
