PUBLISHED October 19, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 2342

The export of waste, for the purposes of Regulation 1013/2006 art.36, was a process commencing once the waste was destined for a non-OECD country at its point of origin, and continuing until the waste reached its ultimate destination in the foreign country. Any participant involved in that process was therefore liable to prosecution under the Transfrontier Shipment of Waste Regulations 2007 reg.23.
