Restrictions on Transboundary Movement

Amendment to the Basel Convention

The ban is implemented via EU-Legislation (Shipment Regulation 259/93/EC as amended by OJ L 022 24.01.1997 p.14 and OJ L 316 10.12.1999 p.45; Article 16).


Austria ratified the two amendments to the Basel Convention (III/1 and IV/9) in 1999 (Fed. Law Gaz.III 2000/6). The amendments became effective October 26th 1999.





Restrictions on export for final disposal

Austria restricts the export of hazardous wastes and other wastes for final disposal. The relevant legislation is the Federal Waste Management Plan 1998, which statutes the principle of self sufficiency for final disposal. Based on this principles objections are raised in case of exports for final disposal provided there is a suitable disposal option in Austria. (30 June 1998). In line with the EU Regulation 259/93/EC final disposal is allowed only within the European Economic Area (EEA). This restriction covers all non-EEA member countries.

The export of hazardous wastes in accordance with Council Decision 94/904/EC and of wastes listed in Annex V of the Shipment Regulation (295(93/EC) for recycling is allowed only to Countries applying OECD Council Decision C92(39) FINAL (amendment of the Shipment Regulation OJ L 022 24.01.1997 p.14 and OJ L 316 10.12.1999 p.45). This restriction covers all countries not applying the OECD Council Decision C92(39) FINAL.







Restrictions on import for final disposal

Austria restricts the import of hazardous wastes and other wastes for final disposal. The relevant legislation is the Federal Waste Management Plan 1998, which statutes the principle of self sufficiency for final disposal.
