- If you plan to transport any hazardous waste via Sri Lanka, you may need to apply for a transit or transshipment approval before it enters into the country.
- The “Transit” of a hazardous waste means that the waste material will be exported via Sri Lanka landing at the ports and this includes goods that remain onboard the vessel while in transit.
- The “Transshipment” of a hazardous waste means that the material will be exported out of Sri Lanka within allowed working days of landing it and this includes goods offloaded onto offshore barges or platforms & put into storage on land until the waste materials loaded to the next vessel.
- If the offloaded goods are not loaded into the next vessel within allowed period (or abandoned) this is considered as an illegal importation.
- Export notification form with the details of hazardous waste in the shipment, names, Quantities, UN numbers, Hazardous Class etc.
- Movement Document
