Waste Shipment Regulation: Annex VII (Information Accompanying Shipments of Waste)

A simplified form of transboundary movement of waste applies to ‘green-listed’ waste, which can be shipped across borders without any further time-consuming permits.


According to the Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2006 on shipments of waste, the following types of waste may be shipped without a notification procedure.

  • green listed recoverable waste (Annexes III, IIIA and IIIB) (>20 kg)
  • waste destined for laboratory analysis (<25 kg)


All that is required for this shipment is a form with consignment information and a contract between the originator and the consignee (in accordance with Art. 18 para. 2 VVA). All consignment information has to be recorded in accordance with Article 18 EC-Waste Shipment Regulation by means of the document set out in Annex VII.


Please feel free to contact Mrs Denise Exner or Mrs Michelle Posavec at any time for questions regarding the “Waste Shipment Regulation” or “Waste Management” in general.
