EC Regulation concerning the export of non-hazardous waste to non-OECD countries

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007 of 29 November 2007 concerning the export for recovery of certain waste listed in Annex III or IIIA to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 to certain non-OECD countries entered into force on 18 December 2007. It was promulgated on 4 December 2007.

Sentence 1 point d of the Annex still contains translation errors in some languages. In correspondence with the English version, the beginning of the second sentence of the German version should read "Wie für ..." (i. e. Article 18 applies to points c and d, except for wastes also listed in column b). The Commission announced that a corrigendum will be published on this.

The information about which wastes and which countries are subject to the transition period of 60 days in Article 3 of the regulation is available on the Internet at ec.europa.eu. During the transition period of 60 days Commission Regulation (EC) No 801/2007 continues to apply in certain cases.

Further information

The Federal Environment Agency (UBA) has published a "list of countries" at www.umweltbundesamt.de/abfallwirtschaft-e/gav/informationspflichten.htm.

It should be noted that a Member State's response published on the EU Commission's website is only legally relevant if by this response the Member State informs that it has adopted a new ban on certain waste in its national law. This is owing to the fact that pursuant to Article 36 (1) (f) of Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 the export is then prohibited, even if it is not yet listed in the above-mentioned Commission Regulation. In any other case the response itself is not legally relevant.

The EU Commission has confirmed that Council Regulation No 1420/1999 will no longer have legal force once the new Commission Regulation has entered into force.
