International Waste Shipments -Consented Shipments between GB and EU

The transition period for Brexit will end on the 31st of December 2020, and new arrangements will be in place for the movement of waste between Great Britain and the EU. On the 29th of June 2020, the EC issued an update for stakeholders outlining a process to be followed by EU competent authorities in respect to consented shipments that extend beyond the date of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU and amended customs arrangements that ALL operators moving waste between GB and EU member states must comply. This can be read here.

The EA International Waste Shipping Team has contacted competent authorities from the EU Member States to obtain agreement from each authority to avoid a break in the continuity of consented notified shipments. The details of which member states have replied, agreed, and the details of their agreement can be found here.
