On the basis of the Basel Convention the European Union has developed a logic of classifying wastes into “green-listed” wastes, which can be transported accross borders with a simple contract and an annex VII document, “amber-listed” wastes which require a notification before these can be shipped. A notification is a process in which the environmental ministries agencies are requested to give their consent before the shipments can take place. Hazardous “red-listed” wastes may not be transported outside Europe and within Europe only on the basis of a notification procedure.
