Annex 11: Classification of Hazardous Waste

Classification of hazardous waste are given in Norwegian legislation, and is based on the inherent properties of the chemical (danger categories and risk phrases, section 2 in the SDS) and the concentration of the given in chemical in the waste.

Note:
Classification of hazardous waste is still based on the old label regulation (DSD), and is likely to be updated to REACH and CLP standards in the near future. At present all SDSs contain information based either only on the old system, or give information according to both the old system and the new system.

Waste containing too low amounts of hazardous chemicals to be classified as dangerous? Which sink? Trygve will examine!
