Information about proceedings in Brandenburg

Transborder shipment of waste means disposal of waste on an international level i.e. foreign disposal of waste generated in Germany as well as disposal of foreign-generated waste in Germany.

Based on the "REGULATION (EC) No 1013/2006 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 14 June 2006 on shipments of waste" (WSR) a planned transborder shipment of waste should be accompanied by certain information or requires prior written notification and consent depending on the intended disposal method, the country of destination and the classification of the waste.

Competence of the SBB

Based on the "Abfall- und Bodenschutz-Zuständigkeitsverordnung für das Land Brandenburg" the competent authority according to the Abfallverbringungsgesetz (AbfVerbrG) and the WSR (see above) for transborder shipment of waste from Brandenburg to foreign countries or vice versa is SBB Sonderabfallgesellschaft Brandenburg/Berlin mbH.

General information requirements

The shipment of so called "Green Waste" (Annexes III and IIIB - WSR) and of "Green" waste mixtures (Annex IIIA - WSR) for recovery is subject to the general information requirements as referred to in Article18 (WSR), if the amount of waste shipped exceeds 20 kg. The person who arranges the shipment should ensure that the waste is accompanied by the document contained in Annex VII (WSR). The contract referred to in Annex VII between the person who arranges the shipment and the consignee for recovery of the waste shall be effective when the shipment starts.

Legal basis

In Germany and all other EU member states transborder shipments of waste are regulated by EC Regulation No 1013/2006 on shipments of waste (WSR), which is based on the "Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal of 22 March 1989" and the "Decision of the OECD-Council C(2001)107/Final on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Wastes Destined for Recovery Operations. The WSR transposes the procedural rules of both regulations into directly applicable European legislation. The amendment of the WSR in 2006 also led to a change in the German Waste Movement Act, which came into force on 28 July 2007.
