Impel TFS

IMPEL-TFS is a network of representatives from enforcement authorities of the Member States and some other European countries dealing with matters related to transboundary movements of hazardous wastes and was set up in 1992 in order to harmonise the enforcement of the Waste Shipment Regulation.
The aim of the network is to:
  • promote compliance with the EC Waste Shipment Regulation through enforcement;
  • carry out joint enforcement projects; and
  • promote exchange of knowledge and experience with the enforcement of the EC Waste Shipment Regulation.
Additionally, the IMPEL-TFS network tries to provide useful information concerning transboundary movements of hazardous wastes for companies as well as competent authorities
Malta is an active member of the IMPEL-TFS network and liaises on a regular basis with other countries in order to monitor transboundary movements of hazardous wastes within, into and out of the European Community.
