OECD Control System
Control of Transboundary Movements of Wastes Destined for Recovery Operations


The OECD Council approved on 13 February 2013 the Opinion of the Environment Policy Committee regarding the compliance by Israel with Decision C(2001)107/FINAL which establishes the Control system for waste destined for recovery.

The OECD Control System is based on two types of control procedures:

  1. 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;
  2. Amber Control Procedure: for wastes presenting sufficient risk to justify their control.
