According to the Waste Ordinance, notes kept on hazardous waste must be reported to the Waste Registry. Here is information about which information that are to be submitted.

§

Legislation

The information to be provided in the e-service is provided by the sixth chapter of the Waste Ordinance and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's regulations in this area.

Waste Ordinance (SFS 2020: 614) (in Swedish)

The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's regulations (NFS 2020: 5) on the obligation to note and report and submit information on hazardous waste to the Waste registry

The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's regulations contain rules on:

  • which information on hazardous waste is to be recorded in accordance with ch. Sections 1–5 of the Waste Ordinance (2020: 614)
  • how recorded information is to be submitted to the Waste Registry according to ch. § 11 of the same ordinance, and
  • what information must be submitted to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency in accordance with ch. § 3 of the same ordinance.

The swedish legislation is an implementation of the EU's amended waste directive.

Note that the information reported to the Waste registry does not replace the information that must be recorded in each activity. It must be possible to report notes at the request of a supervisory authority.

Report via e-service

All business representatives who have access to e-identification can provide information via the e-service, both for their own business but also as a proxy for another companies.

Unlike when reporting to the Waste Registry via API, it is not required that you enter into an agreement with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to use the e-service.

Report to the Waste Registry via API

Businesses that are required to take notes according to the Waste Ordinance, as well as the service and software suppliers that deliver systems to these operators, can provide information via API.

Businesses will be able to submit information to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's Waste Registry using the API – a web service that enables two different systems to exchange information with each other.

Until the guide is updated with more information, you can contact our customer service for information on how to connect to the Waste Registry's API.
