EWC Code List

The European Waste Catalogue Codes are used for the classification of all wastes and hazardous wastes and are designed to form a consistent waste classification system across the EU. They form the basis for all national and international waste reporting obligations, such as those associated with waste licences and permits, the National Waste Database and the transport of waste.

The EWC Code Search is also available on our FREE App in iTunes.
