National Definition

National definition of waste used for the purpose of transboundary movements of waste exists in Sweden.
Waste means any substance or object in the categories set out in a list of waste categories which the holder discards or intends to or is required to discard. For the purpose of transboundary movements of waste EU regulation 259/93 on the supervision and control of shipments of waste within, into and out of the European Community defined what waste should be controlled.
National definition of hazardous waste used for the purpose of transboundary movements of waste exists in Sweden.

In the Waste Ordinance (SFS 2001:1063) hazardous waste is waste that is marked with an asterisk in annex 2 of the Ordinance or any other waste that exhibits one or more of the characteristics that are mentioned in annex 3 of the Ordinance. Annex 2 is the List of Wastes and annex 3 is the List of characteristics that render wastes hazardous wastes.


Sweden regulates/controls additional wastes as hazardous that are not included in Art. 1 (1)a of the Basel Convention and would be controlled for the purpose of transboundary movements pursuant to Art. 1 (1)b.

The national definition of hazardous waste covers wastes other than those listed in Annexes I, II and VIII of the Basel Convention. A list of such wastes is posted on the Basel Convention's website (www.basel.int).


In Sweden there are no wastes other than those pursuant to Art. 1 (1)a and/or Art. 1 (1)b of the Basel Convention that require special consideration when subjected to transboundary movement.
