Further rules on EU waste statistics published

A regulation requiring EU states to report on the quality of their waste statistics has been published in the bloc's official journal and will enter force on 26 September. The rules help implement a 2002 regulation aimed at improving EU waste generation, recovery and disposal statistics (EED 09/12/02). Quality reports have to comment on factors such as sampling, coverage or non-response errors that could affect the reliability of statistics. Governments have until 30 June 2006 to compile first statistics under the regulation, accompanied by a quality report. See regulation 1445/2005.
