Review of Australia’s international waste-related reporting obligations

Wednesday, 29 May, 2013

The Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities has released the ‘Review of Australia’s international waste-related reporting obligations’.

The report provides an assessment of Australia’s international waste-related reporting obligations and documents the data collection and reporting that those obligations entail, as well as the definitions and classifications used for the data collected, reported and publicly disclosed.

The report has some analysis of how underlying state and territory and reporting requirements support meeting Australia’s international obligations. Opportunities to improve Australia’s acquittal of key obligations in relation to data collection and reporting, such as Basel Convention reporting, are also identified in the report.

The report can be accessed at www.environment.gov.au/wastepolicy/publications/international-reporting.html.
