Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO

In the Netherlands, if you want to dispose of equipment containing PCBs in a commercial capacity, such as old transformers or capacitors, you are obliged to maintain a register that can be accessed by the competent supervising authority. In this register, you record:

  • the quantity, origin and nature of the PCBs removed
  • the origin and nature of the equipment that contained the removed PCBs
  • the PCB content used in that equipment

Producer responsibility

Recycling and waste management are priority topics for the EU, and the coming years will see a shift towards extended producer responsibility and recycling of waste. You can find more information on these ambitions on the Rijkswaterstaat Environment website.
