Control export and import of wastes

Τhe International instruments established to control export and import of wastes which may pose a risk or a hazard to human health and the environment are two: BASEL CONVENTION, whose secretariat is administered by the United Nations Environment Programmed (UNEP), and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Council Decision C(2001)107/FINAL (hereinafter “the OECD Decision”).


Control export and import of wastes

For export or import of waste consider -first check the local legislation, then -Basel convention, and or -OECD Decision, and or -Bilateral, multilateral and regional agreements, on waste Transboundary movements


Control export and import of wastes BASEL CONVETION

Wastes Controlled Under the Basel Convention Article 1 of the Convention states that the wastes that are subject to Transboundary movement shall be "hazardous wastes" for the purpose of the Convention


Control export and import of wastes BASEL CONVETION Since 1998 Basel Convention keeps two new annexes to the Convention namely Annex VIII (list A) and Annex IX (list B). The Conference of the Parties also instructed the Technical Working Group to keep the List A and List B of wastes under review. (a) List A. Wastes contained in this list are characterized as hazardous under Article 1, paragraph 1 (a), of the Convention, and their designation on this list does not preclude the use of the Annex III to demonstrate that a waste is not hazardous. (b) List B. Wastes contained in this list will not be wastes covered by Article 1, paragraph 1 (a), of this Convention unless they contain Annex I material to an extent causing them to exhibit an Annex III characteristic. http://www.basel.int


Control export and import of wastes BASEL CONVENTION

BASEL CONVENTION controls the Transboundary movement of hazardous and other wastes through its provisions for “Prior Informed Consent” (PIC) that must be met before any shipment of wastes is permitted.


Control export and import of wastes BASEL CONVENTION

BASEL CONVENTION proposes and demands export / import/ transit procedures and conditions for hazardous waste


Control export and import of wastes BASEL CONVENTION

The procedures to control waste transfrontier shipments of the Basel Convention and OECD are based on three main steps: -Notification, -Written Consent, -Transboundary movement with the accompanying Movement Document and finally the issuance of -Certificate of Disposal /Recovery

step 1: Notification A. Application to get import approval of hazardous waste from involved competent authorities of production, of waste treatment and whereas from transit authorities B. Insurance again third part environmental damages and non forseen cost

OECD import export procedures of decision C (92) 39 2003 

OECD revised Decision (92) 39 2003 ?

The field of application of this decision is more restricted than the Basel Convention since it circumscribes movements of waste destined solely for recovery.

OECD with the revision of council decision C(92)39/FINAL on the control of Transboundary movements of wastes destined for recovery operations set all required terms and condition to import or to export waste for recovery operations.

Provides the called green and amber lists that are mostly marked as Basel Convention annexes VIII& IX.

In the revised OECD Control System, the lists of wastes subject to control have been harmonized with the lists of wastes of the Basel Convention, requiring different levels of control when destined for recovery in another OECD country.

The OECD Control System is now based on two types of control procedures: Green Control Procedure for wastes that present low risk for human health and the environment and, therefore, are not subject to any other controls than those normally applied in commercial transactions; and Amber Control Procedure for wastes presenting sufficient risk to justify their control.

BILATRAL AGREMENTS  Bilateral, multilateral and regional agreements on waste Transboundary movements:

 The provisions of this Convention shall not affect Transboundary

movements which take place pursuant to bilateral, multilateral or regional agreements, provided that such agreements are compatible with the environmentally sound management of hazardous wastes and other wastes as required by this Convention" (Article 11, paragraph 2).

 Parties shall notify the Secretariat of any such agreement that they

enter into regarding Transboundary movement of hazardous or other wastes, as well as "those which they have entered into prior to the entry into force of this Convention for them, for the purpose of controlling Transboundary movements of hazardous wastes and other wastes which take place entirely among the Parties to such agreements
