Abstract

This Decree-Law, composed of 98 articles, regulates the licensing of the installation and management of the Integrated Centres for Structural Improvement, Added Value and Elimination of Hazardous Wastes (CIRVER). The National Policy for the structural improvement, added value and elimination of hazardous wastes aims at granting an elevated protection level to public health and environment. The Decree-Law requires the licenses for the CRIVER to be released by the Government authority responsible for the related environment area. The Decree-Law sets the criteria required for the creation of a CRIVER and regulates the rights and obligations for CRIVER managers. Finally, it drafts the licensing procedure to be further regulated by the Institute for Waste (INR).
