"Waste" shall mean any substance or object in the categories set out in annex I of the Directive CEE 75/442 from 15 July 1975, as modified, which the holder discards or intends or is required to discard.

The national definition of hazardous waste used for the purpose of transboundary movements is in accordance with EU Regulation 259/93.
