National Definition

There is no national definition of waste used for the purpose of transboundary movements of waste in Barbados.

However, a definition is proposed in the revised "Policy Paper: Management of Toxic Chemicals and Hazardous Waste."

Hazardous waste means waste that has one or more of the following properties:

1. has flashpoint of less than 61oC; 2. ignites and propagates combustion in a teat sample; 3. at a rate that is equal to or greater that that provided by ammonium persulphate, potassium percholorate or potassium bromate; 4. the pH value is less than 2.0 or greater than 125; 5. it contains polychlorinated byphenyls at a concentration equal to or greater than 50mg/kg;

6.its leachate contains any substance listed in Table 2 in excess of the concentrations listed; and 7. it contains any of the following substances in a concentration greater than 0.001mg/L: Hexachloro-dibenzo-p-dioxins; Pentachloro-dibenzo-p-dioxins; Tetrachloro-dibenzo-p-dioxins

Hexachloro-dibenzofurans; Pentachloro-dibnzofurans; Tetrachloro-dibenzofurans.

Special wastes are non-hazardous wastes that require special handling and disposal procedures. These would include, for example: gasoline contaminated soil and wastes from international flights or ports.
There is no national definition of hazardous waste used for the purpose of transboundary movements of waste in Barbados.

There is no legal definition of hazardous waste. Shipments of hazardous waste materials however, are shipped in accordance with procedures and guidelines established under the Basel Convention.


There are no wastes defined as, or considered to be hazardous wastes by national legislation in accordance with Art. 1, para 1(b) of the Basel Convention.
In Barbados 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.



Restrictions on Transboundary Movement

Amendment to the Basel Convention

The amendment to the Basel Convention (Decision III/1) has not been implemented in Barbados.







Restrictions on export for final disposal and for recovery

Barbados has no restrictions on the export of hazardous wastes and other wastes for final disposal and for recovery.







Restrictions on transit and import for final disposal and for recovery

Barbados has no restrictions on the transit and import of hazardous wastes and other wastes for final disposal and for recovery.


There is no significant legal authority to prevent the importation of hazardous waste. The Chief Parliamentary Council is in the process of preparing comprehensive environmental management legislation, which would incorporate Basel Convention issues. The restrictions are taken as those found in Article 4 (General Obligations) of the Basel Convention.




Reduction and/or Elimination of Hazardous Waste Generation


National strategies/policies

The Policy Paper for Chemical Management was recently reviewed and updated. The paper is now entitled "Policy Paper: Management of Toxic Chemicals and Hazardous Waste". The policy paper now provides a policy statement and policy objectives for the management of hazardous waste. The overall aim would be to achieve life cycle management of chemicals and hazardous waste generated locally. The paper mainly makes provisions for shipment of hazardous waste off shore to certified facilities.







Legislation, regulations and guidelines

The "Policy Paper: Management of Toxic Chemicals and Hazardous Waste" identifies four broad areas for legislative development. These areas are Import/Export/Re-Export; Handling and Transport; Business Operation; and Disposal.






Transboundary Movement Reduction Measures

None.




Disposal/

Recovery Facilities

No facilities available.






Bilateral, Multilateral or Regional Agreements

No agreements.
