Brunei Article 83(3) of the Constitution of Brunei Darussalam: Hazardous Waste (Control of Export, Import and Transit) Order, 2013View the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
The Hazardous Waste (Control of Export, Import and Transit) Order defines categories of wastes to be controlled, categories of wastes requiring special consideration, list of hazardous characteristics, disposal operations, and information to be provided for notification of transboundary movement of hazardous wastes or other wastes. This Order specifies the requirements to perform “hazardous waste” disposal, it prohibits the transboundary movement of plastic waste unless the person importing or exporting is authorized to do so. It was modified to include requirements of plastic waste amendments (Department Of Environment Parks And Recreation Ministry Of Development Brunei Darussalam, 2022). The Director of Environment, Parks and Recreation has superintendence of all matters relating to this Order. The main driver of this policy was political, this order gives effect to the plastic amendments of the Basel Convention. There was insufficient evidence available to assess this policy at the time of the assessment.
