SCHEDULE 1THE LIST OF WASTES – THE ANNEX TO THE LIST OF WASTES DECISION

“ANNEXList of wastes pursuant to Article 1(a) of Directive 75/442/EEC on waste and Article 1(4) of Directive 91/689/EEC on hazardous waste

Introduction

1.  The present list is a harmonised list of wastes. It will be periodically reviewed on the basis of new knowledge and, in particular, of research results, and if necessary revised in accordance with Article 18 of Directive 75/442/EEC. However, the inclusion of a material in the list does not mean that the material is a waste in all circumstances. Materials are considered to be waste only where the definition of waste in Article 1(a) of Directive 75/ 442/EEC is met.

2.  Wastes included in the list are subject to the provisions of Directive 75/442/ EEC except where Article 2(1)(b) of this Directive applies.

3.  The different types of wastes in the list are fully defined by the six-digit code for the waste and the respective two-digit and four-digit chapter headings. This implies that the following steps should be taken to identify a waste in the list.

3.1.  Identify the source generating the waste in chapters 01 to 12 or 17 to 20 and identify the appropriate six-digit code of the waste (excluding codes ending with 99 of these chapters). A specific production unit may need to classify its activities in several chapters. For instance, a car manufacturer may find its wastes listed in chapters 12 (wastes from shaping and surface treatment of metals), 11 (inorganic wastes containing metals from metal treatment and the coating of metals) and 08 (wastes from the use of coatings), depending on the different process steps. Note: separately collected packaging waste (including mixtures of different packaging materials) shall be classified in 15 01, not in 20 01.

3.2.  If no appropriate waste code can be found in chapters 01 to 12 or 17 to 20, the chapters 13, 14 and 15 must be examined to identify the waste.

3.3.  If none of these waste codes apply, the waste must be identified according to chapter 16.

3.4.  If the waste is not in chapter 16 either, the 99 code (wastes not otherwise specified) must be used in the section of the list corresponding to the activity identified in step one.

4.  Any waste marked with an asterisk (*) is considered as a hazardous waste pursuant to Directive 91/689/EEC on hazardous waste, and subject to the provisions of that Directive unless Article 1(5) of that Directive applies.

5.  For the purpose of this Decision, 'dangerous substance' means any substance that has been or will be classified as dangerous in Directive 67/548/EEC and its subsequent amendments; 'heavy metal' means any compound of antimony, arsenic, cadmium, chromium(VI), copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenium, tellurium, thallium and tin, as well as these materials in metallic form, as far as these are classified as dangerous substances.

6.  If a waste is identified as hazardous by a specific or general reference to dangerous substances, the waste is hazardous only if the concentrations of those substances are such (i.e. percentage by weight) that the waste presents one or more of the properties listed in Annex III to Council Directive 91/689/EEC. As regards H3 to H8, H10 and H11, Article 2 of this Decision shall apply. For the characteristics H1, H2, H9 and H12 to H14 Article 2 of the present Decision does not provide specifications at present.

7.  In line with Directive 1999/45/EC (OJ No. L200, 30.7.1999, p.1), which states in its preamble that the case of alloys has been considered to need further assessment because the characteristics of alloys are such that it may not be possible accurately to determine their properties using currently available conventional methods, the provisions of Article 2 would not apply to pure metal alloys (not contaminated by dangerous substances). This will be so pending further work that the Commission and Member States have taken the commitment to undertake on the specific approach of the classification of alloys. The waste materials which are specifically enumerated in this list, shall remain classified as at present.

8.  The following rules for numbering of the items in the list have been used: For those wastes that were not changed, the code numbers from Commission Decision 94/3/EC have been used. The codes for wastes that were changed have been deleted and remain unused in order to avoid confusion after implementation of the new list. Wastes added have been given a code thathas not been used in Commission Decision 94/3/EC and Commission Decision 2000/532/EC.

Article 1(a) of the Waste Directive (75/442/EEC); a consolidated text of which is available at

http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/consleg/main/1975/en_1975L0442_index.html,

and the first indent of Article 1(4) of the Hazardous Waste Directive (91/689/EEC); a consolidated text of which is available at

http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/consleg/pdf/1991/en_1991L0689_do_001.pdf,

require the drawing up of a list of wastes in accordance with the procedure in Article 18 of the Waste Directive. The European Waste Catalogue comprised the lists in Decisions 94/3/EC and 94/904 adopted pursuant to Article 1(a) of the Waste Directive and Article 1(4) of the Hazardous Waste Directive.

The List of Wastes, which replaced the “European Waste Catalogue”, provides for the classification of wastes and determines, subject as follows, whether they are hazardous wastes.

Regulation 6 of the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 (2005/894) (“the Hazardous Waste Regulations”) defines hazardous waste for the purpose of implementing the Hazardous Waste Directive in England. Paragraph (a) of that regulation provides that a waste is hazardous if it is listed as a hazardous waste in these Regulations. The definition is also used in other Directives (for instance, Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste and Directive 1996/61/EC concerning integrated pollution prevention and control). Consequential amendments to incorporate this list in these Regulations in the relevant implementing legislation are included in Schedule 11 to the Hazardous Waste Regulations.

Regulation 3(1) of these Regulations provides that the List of Wastes has effect for purposes connected with the regulation of waste and hazardous waste, and in particular for—

(a)determining whether a material or substance is a waste or a hazardous waste (sub-paragraph (1)(a); and

(b)the classification and coding of wastes (sub-paragraph (1)(b))Regulation 3(3) provides that the Introduction to the List of Wastes has effect for the purposes of interpreting the list, for determining whether a waste is hazardous and in identifying the waste.

Regulation 3(4) gives effect, for the purposes of the regulation of waste and hazardous waste, to the six digit codes and two and four digit chapter headings in the List of Wastes.

Regulation 3(5) provides that any requirement (or condition) in any legislation that the correct six digit code is to be given is only complied with (or satisfied) if the code in the List of Wastes for the waste concerned is given. Regulation 3(6) provides for the asterisk in the List of Wastes to indicate that the waste concerned is hazardous, and regulation 3(7) provides that, for dangerous substances to be hazardous where a limit value of concentration applies, the waste is only hazardous where the limit value in regulation 4, or Annex III of the Hazardous Waste Directive, is satisfied. Regulation 4 sets out the limit values of concentration contained in Article 2 of the List of Wastes Decision.

The List of Wastes refers to substances being hazardous if they contain dangerous substances. A substance is a dangerous substance if it is a dangerous substance pursuant to the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2002 (S.I. 2002/1689, as amended by S.I. 2004/3386) which implement the Dangerous Substances Directive (67/548/EEC) in Great Britain.

A transposition note has been prepared setting out the transposition of the Hazardous Waste Directive and the List of Wastes Decision. A regulatory impact assessment has also been prepared. Copies of both the transposition note and the regulatory impact assessment are available in both Houses of Parliament and from WM Hazardous Waste Unit, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Zone 7/F15, Ashdown House, 123 Victoria Street, London SW1E 6DE.
