EU 1179

It recovers and sells glass cullet

On December 31, 2012, the EU Regulation 1179/2012, which establishes when glass cullet destined for remelting processes cease to be considered waste.

The provision represents the second "implementing" regulation of article 6 of Directive 2008/98 / EC on waste (preceded by regulation 333/2011 / EU on ferrous scrap), a rule that establishes the general conditions for the termination of the qualification of waste ( so-called "end of waste").

Similarly to what has already been done with EU Regulation 333, companies must have a Quality Management System whose validity is recognized by a third and independent body.

In order for glass cullet to exit the waste regulatory framework, the following conditions must be met:

  • Come from separate collection;
  • Possess minimum quality standards;
  • Be destined for recast processes;
  • Have process management systems;
  • Declaration of conformity.
