ECJ rules on Annex VII form for transboundary waste shipments


Intermediary dealers must name the waste generator on shipment documents, even if this discloses business secrets and results in financial harm for the merchant, according to a new ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

Interseroh Scrap and Metals Trading GmbH had argued that the right to protect its business secrets made it permissible to conceal the source of its scrap shipments from consignees rather than divulging it on the form laid down in the EU Waste Shipment Regulation's Annex VII which is required to accompany transboundary deliveries of green-list wastes.
The ruling will now be sent to the referring court, the Verwaltungsgericht Mainz.
