Norwegian transboundary waste controls are governed by EC Regulation 259/93 on Shipment of Waste. Norway has implemented the EC Regulation as part of its EEA obligations. The regulation imposes controls on the transfrontier movement of virtually all waste. The regulatory controls differ depending on whether the shipments are for disposal or recovery, and whether they are intra-EC shipments, or EC imports or EC exports. Generally, the shipment for disposal requirements resemble the prior authorization scheme of the Basel Convention on the Transboundary Shipment of Hazardous Waste, and shipment for recovery requirements are based on the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Decision on the Transfrontier Movement of Waste for Recovery. See the report on the EC Transboundary Waste Controls.
