European Commission Guidance on Waste Inspections and Enforcement Actions

1st Feb 2012

In 2011, DG Environment of the European Commission launched a study aiming at gathering from the EU Member States examples of best practice in permitting and inspections related to the enforcement of certain pieces of waste legislation, and preparing, on this basis, a set of recommendations and guidance documents.

The study focused on the following EU waste legislation:

  • Waste Framework Directive (WFD) (2008/98/EC)
  • Landfill Directive (1999/31/EC), together with the WAC Decision (2003/33/EC)
  • RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC to be replaced by 2011/65/EU)
  • WEEE Directive (2002/96/EC to be replaced in short notice).

The study resulted in preparing a set of guidance and best practice documents which are now available on the Commission website
