What are the waste shipment arrangements between GB and EU after 1st January 2021?

Defra is conducting a free webinar entitled ‘Waste shipments between GB and EU from 1st January 2021: what is changing?’


 What are the waste shipment arrangements between GB and EU after 1st January 2021 fJoin the webinar on 20th November to find out more about what the new arrangements for the movement of waste between GB and the EU will be from 1st January 2021 onwards.

The UK has left the EU, and the transition period after Brexit comes to an end this year. This means that from 1st January 2021 there will be new arrangements for the movement of waste between GB and the EU.

The current waste shipments procedures will largely still apply but if you are an exporter or an importer you will need to make yourself aware of the EU customs guidelines and the EU Waste Shipment Regulations.

They require:

– waste exporters / importers to complete waste notification and waste movement forms with details of the Customs Office of Entry into or Exit from the EU

– waste carriers to provide a copy of the waste movement document to the Customs Office of Entry into or Exit from the EU, if requested (if exporting or importing through a German Customs Office, a copy of the waste movement document must always be provided)

– GB exporters to check that any transport of waste within the EU is carried out by an appropriately authorised waste carrier

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is holding this free-of-charge webinar to provide more information to businesses that may be affected by these changes.

Date and Time: 20th November 2020, 14:00

Platform: Zoom

Joining instructions will be sent to registered attendees the day before the webinar.
