Assessment of the classification of waste oil according to the CLP Regulation in the context of the assessment of waste according to the accident prevention regulation

Melany Macherey was invited to the annual meeting of the German Association for Waste Oil (Bundesverband Altöl e.V., BVA), which was held on 19 and 20 September in Potsdam. She presented the results of the evaluation report on the classification of waste oils according to the CLP Regulation in the context of the assessment of wastes according to the accident prevention regulation, which FoBiG prepared on behalf of the BVA. The background of the report is the working aid for the classification of waste under Annex I of the 12th BImSchV ("NRW-Leitfaden"), which was published in summer 2018 and according to which waste oils are to be classified as environmentally hazardous substances pursuant to category E2 of Annex I of the 12th BImschV. The evaluation report assesses the relevance of contaminants in representative samples for the classification of oil mixtures.
