Study to develop a guidance document on the definition and classification of waste (2015)

5/02/2016

The legislation concerning waste classification has been recently reviewed. Those involved in the production, assessment, management and regulation of hazardous waste are in need of a comprehensive reference manual which provides technical guidance on the assessment and classification of hazardous waste.

The objective of this study was to assist the Commission in the development of such a guidance document, based on a thorough analysis of the legislative framework, the relevant literature and, if needed, field research, and contributions from experts (from competent authorities, testing laboratories, industry and waste management practitioners).
