CROATIA's ratification of the 1995 Basel Ban Amendment has enabled this global anti-waste dumping rule to finally enter into the force of international law on December 5.

The ban amendment - adopted by the parties to the Basel Convention in 1995 - prohibits the export of hazardous wastes from member states of the European Union, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and Liechtenstein to all other countries.



With Croatia's ratification, a total of 97 countries have now ratified the ban and most crucially the necessary 3/4 of the parties that were present and voted in 1995. The new agreement will become a new Article in the Convention and will enter into force for the 97 countries after 90 days.
