EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Marine Licensing (Exempted Activities) (Wales) Order 2011 (“the 2011 Order”), which refers to Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 November 2008 on waste and repealing certain Directives (OJ No. L 312, 22.11.2008, p. 3) (“the Waste Framework Directive”).

The Waste Framework Directive was amended by Council Regulation (EU) 2017/997 of 8 June 2017 amending Annex III to Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the hazardous property HP 14 ‘Ecotoxic’ (OJ No. L 150, 14.6.2017, p. 1).
