Notification procedure international shipment of waste

By sending in the notification, the authority of dispatch will check the notification. During this procedure, the authority will inform you on the status. If necessary, the authority will ask for additional information to complete the notification.

The authority of dispatch will send the notification, incuding all the attachments, to the other authorities that are involved (Block 15 of the notification document). Tacit consent by the competent authority of transit may be assumed if no objection is lodged within the said 30-day time limit.

Disagreement on classification issues between competent authorities

How competent authorities of dispatch and of destination should cope with disagreements is stated in article 28 of the Waste Shipment Regulation (No. (EC) 1013/2006): the notifier must follow the procedure indicated by the most stringent authority. As a notifier, you must therefore check in advance what the position of the authorities is on the classification of the (non-)waste and under which waste treatment operation it falls.
