Appendix VIII
OECD Council Decision Concerning the Control of Transfrontier Movements of Wastes Destined for Recovery Operations (C(92)39, 30 March 1992)

THE COUNCIL,

Having regard to Article 5(a) of the Convention on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development of 14 December 1960;
