COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 413/2010

of 12 May 2010

amending Annexes III, IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on shipments of waste so as to take account of changes adopted by OECD Council Decision C(2008) 156

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and the Council of 14 June 2006 on shipments of waste (1), and in particular Article 58(1)(a) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In December 2005, at its 8th meeting, the Working Group on Waste Prevention and Recycling (WGWPR) of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) agreed to clarify the wording of entry B1030 of Annex IX to the Basel Convention. The amendment of that entry has been adopted by OECD Council Decision C(2008) 156 and still needs to be agreed under the Basel Convention. Pending approval by the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention and amendment of Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006, it is appropriate to incorporate that clarification in Union legislation.

(2)

In April 2008, at its 11th meeting, WGWPR of OECD agreed to amend the wording of entry AA010 of the OECD Amber list of wastes. The amendment of that entry has been adopted by OECD Council Decision C(2008) 156. It is therefore appropriate to incorporate that amendment in Union legislation.

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 18 of Directive 2006/12/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annexes III, IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 12 May 2010.
