Council Regulation (EU) No 333/2011 of 31 March 2011 establishing criteria determining when certain types of scrap metal cease to be waste under Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
Iron, steel and aluminium scrap, including aluminium alloy scrap cease to be waste if the conditions required by Regulation (EU) No 333/2011 are fulfilled upon transfer from the producer to another holder.
In order to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Regulation, the producer must have implemented a quality management system that includes:
- acceptance control of waste used as input;
- monitoring of the treatment processes and techniques;
- monitoring of the quality of scrap metal resulting from the recovery operation;
- effectiveness of the radiation monitoring;
- feedback from customers concerning compliance with scrap metal quality.
The producer or the importer shall issue, for each consignment of scrap metal, a statement of conformity in accordance with the model set out in Annex III of Regulation (EU) No 333/2011.
CERTIND holds accreditation as an environmental verifier (Certificate No. VM 002/ EMAS no. RO-V-0003, issued by RENAR), and can perform the quality management system verification in accordance with the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 333/2011.
