This project was carried out to provide a better picture of transboundary shipments of green-listed waste involving project countries Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The readily available export data for 2014 are presented. The primary effort in the project was devoted to an Annex VII inspection, which was carried out as a desk study. 33 companies were asked to send all their Annex VIIs and related contracts from September-October 2015 to the competent authority of their country. Special focus was given to companies exporting waste beyond the EEA, as were the waste streams consisting of metal scrap, plastics, paper, and cable waste. In addition to the Annex VII inspection and the gathering of national statistics, the project included asking company representatives about their practices and opinions related to green-listed waste shipments, via a Web-based survey.



Use of Annex VII documents

To ascertain how companies use Annex VII documents and whether they have valid contracts under Article 18 of the WSR, a joint inspection of the documents was carried out in late 2015. Competent authorities in each project country selected a few companies, who were asked to send copies of all Annex VII documents and related contracts corresponding to shipments from or to their facilities in September–October 2015. The target was 100–150 Annex VIIs per country, but some countries provided many more. Accordingly, we had to limit the number of Annex VIIs that were analysed in detail. This section of the report presents the process followed and the findings from this inspection.
