of 18 November 2014

amending Annexes IIIB, V and VIII to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on shipments of waste

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

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 Article 58(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

At its eleventh meeting held in Geneva from 28 April to 10 May 2013, the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal (‘Basel Convention’) adopted decision BC-11/6 amending Annex IX of the Basel Convention. Annex IX to the Basel Convention is listed in Annex V, Part 1, List B to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006. The amendment, which includes two new waste entries, becomes effective upon expiration of six months from 26 November 2013 in accordance to Article 18(2)(b) of the Basel Convention.

(2)

The waste streams described by the two new entries B3026 and B3027 correspond to those of three existing entries of Annex IIIB to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006. Those entries are BEU01, BEU02 and BEU03. The first and second subindents of entry B3026 correspond to entries BEU02 and BEU03, respectively. Entry B3027 corresponds to entry BEU01.

(3)

To take account of decision BC-11/6, entries B3026 and B3027 need to be inserted in Annex V, Part 1, List B to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006. At the same time, entries BEU01, BEU02 and BEU03 should be deleted from Annex IIIB to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006, which contains unclassified wastes on a provisional basis pending a decision on their inclusion in the relevant Annexes to the Basel Convention or to the Decision of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

(4)

At the same meeting, the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention adopted by decision BC-11/15 sections 1, 2, 4 and 5 of the guidance document on environmentally sound management of used and end-of-life computing equipment. Following this adoption, Annex VIII to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 should be updated accordingly.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 39 of Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
