National definition of waste used for the purpose of transboundary movements of waste exists in Poland.

National list of hazardous waste is defined in the ordinance of the Minister of Environment on the waste catalogue (O.J of 2001, No.112, Item 1206). Catalogue is based on European Waste List. Waste are divided into 20 groups. Catalogue defines groups, subgroups, types of waste and their codes (six figures). Two first figures mean the source of generation, two next figures describe subgroup of waste and the whole six figures codes means type of waste. Hazardous waste are marked on the list with asterisk. Polish National list of hazardous waste covers all types of hazardous waste stipulated in European Waste Catalogue and additionally covers the below mentioned waste which are consider hazardous under national legislation.


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).
