Defra Consultation on EC Proposal to Revise the Waste Framework Directive

FDF has made a submission to Defra's consultation on the EC's proposal for a revised Waste Framework Directive. Defra is inviting Stakeholder views on the revision of the Waste Framework Directive (WFD) to inform the UK's negotiations in Brussels and to ensure that it has an evidence base which is as sound as possible. The Commission's objective in revising the Directive is to introduce clearer definitions, refocus the Directive on the reduction of environmental impacts from waste generation and management taking into account the whole life cycle and to simplify the legal framework. The principal issues for FDF relate to the proposed use of comitology, the waste hierarchy and definitions.
