Monitoring Coalition against Trafficking of Hazardous Waste

Waste management is a priority of European Union, which has set the basic requirements on waste management including the need to ensure that is carried out without endangering human health and the environment.

EU legislation provisions related to the environmentally safe management of hazardous waste refer to monitoring and control obligations by Member-States.

The necessity of ensuring a more effective fight against environmental crime and its possible impacts require the mobilisation of frontline enforcement.
