WASTE TRANSFER: ENHANCED CHECKS.
Following the Committee of Permanent Representatives' (Coreper) green light for an agreement on a new regulation on waste transfer, drawn up by the Council on 4 March, the European Parliament's Committee on the Environment (ENVI) has now approved the text. It will be put to the vote in the EP's plenary session between 14 and 17 April, and should then be formally adopted by the Council. It will enter into force on 1 January 2016. This regulation enhances the measures currently in force by imposing stricter requirements on national inspections and planning. Moreover, the member states will be required to carry out risk assessments for specific waste flows and sources of illegal waste transfers, as well as set priorities within annual inspection plans.
