Regulations

The Strasbourg Convention on the Collection, Deposit and Reception of Waste during Navigation on the Rhine and Inland Waterways of 9 September 1996 has been adopted by six countries with effect for navigation on their inland waterways (Belgium, France, Germany, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland). The main objective of this Convention is to protect the environment and to improve safety in inland navigation.

 

To achieve this objective, the Convention aims at improved checking of any waste that occurs, specifically through:

 

- safe and separate collection and subsequent disposal of wastes arising from operating the vessel.

- requiring those causing wastes to pay the costs of collection and disposal.

- the application of uniform regulations within all signatory states of the Convention 
in order to avoid any unfair competition.
