The European Commission has published the amended text of a proposed Council Regulation amending Regulation (EEC) No 259/93 on the supervision and control of shipments of waste within, into and out of the European Community.

The amended proposal would bring the list of wastes classified as hazardous under the proposed Community legislation into line with the Basle Convention on the shipment of hazardous waste. The amended proposal stipulates that the Commission will establish as soon as possible an Annex II to the Regulation, which would feature the hazardous wastes already covered by the Basle Convention.

This will ensure that the export of wastes listed in the Basle Convention will also be prohibited in the Community, from 1 January 1998 onwards.
