Quo vadis Legal Compliance

True to the maxim „who is going to pay all this, who has that much money?" everyone involved has to put up with the question of where the journey of affordable legal compliance will lead, considering that in the case of the AVE Österreich GmbH alone an annual expenditure of Eu-ro 1,000,000.--/year (not including investments) is necessary.

When analysing the legal demands due to valid contracts that Austrian customers of the AVE Österreich GmbH, by customer groups like industry, general business and municipalities, have, the following becomes clear: non-compliance in legal issues causes decreases in annual turnover in the tens of millions.
On the open market, however, competitors selling below cost have to be dealt with. It is left to others to assess to what extent legal compliance can be ensured there.
From AVE Österreich GmbH’s point of view it is clear that the Austrian waste industry is strongly committed to legal compliance. Therefore, further market participants are required to optimise the legal framework for this industry.
The ministry, the Austrian Economic Chamber and interest groups have to put up with the question of how much they did in recent years to protect companies operating in the waste in-dustry.
AVE Österreich GmbH wants to give some impulses to make one think:
- Are site-specific visualizations of mass flow using STAN necessary in times of EDM re-porting?
- Is the fee schedule for certified waste management companies (Entsorgungsfachbetriebe) reasonable in times of equivalent environmental management systems?
- How do customers of the waste industry get to differentiate between the specific require-ments for each certificate?
- What is the public administration’s point of view on waste management plans and on the Trade, Crafts and Industry Act 1994 (Gewerbeordnung 1994) § 82b Verification Certificate (Prüfbescheinigung) ceasing to apply?
- Nationwide uniform enforcement of the legal framework.

Decades of improper Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Management has resulted in the creation of huge dumpsites in cities. These dumpsites are causing considerable environmental pollution and are full to capacity in most cities.

Waste management has been recognized as one of the most pressing problems in Greece suffering of a low level of organization and relying predominantly on semi-controlled landfills until the end of the previous century [9]. Nevertheless improvements have been made during the last twenty years making the solid waste management in Greece a well-structured, organized and environmentally responsible activity with specific goals, mostly in the urban areas. However, there is a big need of changing the waste Management model. The development of efficient use of resources is the mean of realizing this vision. The transformation of the economy towards a resource-efficient direction will lead to increased competitiveness and new sources of growth and jobs through cost reduction through improved efficiency, commercialization of innovations and better management of resources throughout the duration of cycle life.

Muss die Abfallhierarchie entsorgt werden?
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2014)
Mit der Richtlinie 98/2008/EG wurde in Europe eine Prioritätenfolge, die so genannte Abfallhierarchie, für Maßnahmen in Bereich der Abfallwirtschaft festgelegt. Diese fünfstufige Reihung bietet auf den ersten Blick eine einfache und rasche Entscheidungshilfe, welche Behandlungsarten für Abfälle zu bevorzugen bzw. zu vermeiden sind. In der Praxis zeigt sich jedoch, dass die in der Abfallhierarchie bevorzugen Optionen, Vermeidung und Wiederverwendung, zu wenig zur Anwendung kommen und die Abfallmenge weiterhin ansteigt.
