Road transport for all users:

If the European Union and the United Kingdom reach a political agreement on future relations before 29 March 2019, the European road transport regulation will continue to apply until 31 December 2020 (i.e. unlimited transport possibilities to and through the United Kingdom for holders of a Community licence, and the continuation of the current cabotage regime). Following the political developments in the United Kingdom, the likelihood of such a favourable scenario has fallen sharply.

Anticipating the likely scenario of a no-deal, a suitable European Regulation is being drafted. This Regulation would allow British hauliers to operate an unlimited number of additional transport journeys between the United Kingdom and the European Union during the period between 30 March 2019 and 31 December 2019, provided that the United Kingdom grants similar rights to European hauliers. This would therefore imply that for the rest of 2019, the Community licence would still be valid for transport between the European Union and the United Kingdom. Cabotage transport would then be prohibited from 30 March 2019 on. This option seems more likely to succeed, but there are no guarantees at this time.

Transport/collection of (non)-hazardous waste:

In the event of a deal, the situation for hazardous waste will remain unchanged since self-employed British nationals are assimilated to EU nationals until 31 December 2020. From 1 January 2021, it will only be possible to obtain an authorisation if the application is submitted by a company incorporated under the law of a Member State of the European Union. For non-hazardous waste, the situation remains unchanged. The Walloon Government Decree of 13 November 2003 on the registration of collectors/transporters of non-hazardous waste still applies.

In the event of a no-deal, the situation for hazardous waste will remain unchanged since self-employed British nationals are assimilated to EU nationals until 31 December 2020. For non-hazardous waste, the situation remains unchanged. The Walloon Government Decree of 13 November 2003 on the registration of collectors/transporters of non-hazardous waste still applies.

If you are involved in cross-border shipments of waste involving the United Kingdom and Wallonia:

In the event of a deal, refer to the Explanatory Note on Brexit published by the European Commission on 8/11/2018.

In summary:

  • From the date of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union (EU), shipments of waste from, to or in transit through the UK will be shipments of waste from outside the EU. However, they remain subject to the OECD rules in this area.
  • In the event that the shipments of the waste in question are banned outside the EU, the permits issued before BREXIT shall automatically lapse.
  • In the case where the shipments of the waste in question are not banned, it will be an amendment which must be subject to the procedure laid down in Article 17 of European Regulation 1013/2006, and which is based in particular on the additional elements which are required where appropriate: in terms of the contract, the financial guarantee, the indication of the HS customs code of the goods, the indication of the EU customs office concerned (even if the withdrawal agreement provides that the UK remains in a customs union with the EU).
  • When the shipment crosses the border, the EU customs office must receive a copy of the movement document.
  • The justification for achieving recovery targets, for waste collected in the EU and shipped to the UK, is subject to the rules applicable for non-EU countries.

In the event of a no-deal, refer to the Explanatory Note on Brexit published by the European Commission on 8/11/2018.
