Summary

The Flanders decree of 2 July 1981 concerning the prevention and management of waste products stipulates that ‘Environmental Policy Agreements (EPA)’ can be concluded for reaching certain objectives. The same decree designated the product groups for which an acceptance duty is set with the aim to collect and recycle. The ‘Flanders regulation with regard to waste prevention and management (VLAREA)’ of 1998 provides the ‘execution resolutions’ for the decree of 1981 concerning the prevention and management of waste products.
