Informal Working Group on the Transport of Hazardous Waste

As specified in paragraph 62 of the report from the last session of the RID/ADR/ADN Joint Meeting (ECE/TRANS/WP.15/AC.1/152), there was general support for the establishment of an informal working group led by FEAD.

In order to prepare the informal working group, the Joint Meeting requested the representative of FEAD to prepare a list of issues, including a description of the legal and factual situation in each case, that needed to be addressed and to be circulated for comments by all those who expressed interest in participating in the working group.

FEAD prepared and circulated the list of issues regarding the transport of hazardous waste for consideration by the informal working group on the transport of hazardous waste. The list of issues was accompanied by a working document including a summary of provisions of the ADR, a list of multilateral agreements and national derogations concerning the transport of hazardous waste.

All relevant documents used during the informal working group meeting can be accessed below.
