COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 740/2008

of 29 July 2008

amending Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007 as regards the procedures to be followed for export of waste to certain countries

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2006 on shipments of waste (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 37(2) thereof,

After consultation of the countries concerned,

Whereas:

(1)

Any ambiguity should be removed with regard to the applicability of Article 18 of Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 to shipments of waste where a country in its reply to the Commission’s request in accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 37(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 has indicated it will not prohibit those shipments nor apply the procedure of prior written notification and consent to them as described in Article 35 of that Regulation.

(2)

The Commission has received replies from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iran and Togo to its written requests seeking confirmation in writing that waste which is listed in Annex III or IIIA to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 and the export of which is not prohibited under its Article 36 may be exported from the Community for recovery in those countries and requesting an indication from them as to which control procedure, if any, would be followed there. The Commission has also received further information relating to Côte d’Ivoire, Malaysia, Moldova (2), Russia and Ukraine. The Annex to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007 (3) should therefore be amended to take this into account.

(3)

It has been pointed out by the government of Liechtenstein that Liechtenstein is to be regarded as a country to which the OECD Decision applies. Article 37(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 therefore does not apply to that country, and Liechtenstein should be deleted from the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007.

(4)

Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007 should be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007 is amended as follows:

1.

The following Article 1a is inserted:

‘Article 1a

Where a country in its reply to a written request sent by the Commission in accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 37(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 indicates that, with regard to certain shipments of waste, it will not prohibit them nor apply the procedure of prior written notification and consent as described in Article 35 of that Regulation, Article 18 of that Regulation shall apply mutatis mutandis to such shipments.’

2.

The Annex to Regulation (EC) No 1418/2007 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 14th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from the date of entry into force.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 29 July 2008.
