This Regulation aims at strengthening, simplifying and specifying the procedures for controlling waste shipments to improve environmental protection. It thus reduces the risk of waste shipments not being controlled. It also seeks to include into Community legislation the provisions of the Basel Convention as well as the revision of the Decision on the control of transboundary movements of wastes destined for recovery operations, adopted by the OECD in 2001.
The successive amendments and corrections to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 have been integrated in to the original text. The consolidated version is of documentary value only.
