Program za pomoć pri određivanju ključnog broja otpada

Waste is classified according to the Catalogue of waste that is compliant with the European Waste Catalogue (European List of Waste). Waste Catalogue contains a list of more than 800 types of waste systematically organized according to the properties of waste into 20 groups. In these twenty groups most are based on the activities in which the waste is generated, while some groups are based on materials or processes. Although Waste Catalogue contains double-digit, four-digit and six-digit keys, to determine the type of waste you should only use six-digit key numbers. Names of groups and subgroups of the Waste Catalogue (two-digit and four-digit numbers) are important in the process of determining the correct key number that in principle refers to the appropriate type of waste.




In determining the number of waste it is crucial to always use the key number as the description which more accurately reflects the characteristics of the waste, taking into account the group and subgroup, and the classification process is specified in the introductory part of the Waste Catalogue (steps described below). In some (rarer) cases it will be necessary to ignore the name of the group and subgroup Waste Catalogue to select appropriate key number on the second point in the catalog because it gives a clearer and more accurate description of the waste. By choosing a key number that clearly describes the waste it will be ensured that the waste is managed appropriately. Accurate determination of the type of waste is an important step because it ensures optimal handling of the waste. The same waste material in the catalog can be often found in several categories.

* Step 1:
In the drop-down menu, select the activity in industries where waste is generated. Functions are listed in alphabetical order, but are separated into two groups in accordance with the Waste Catalogue groups. If you have not found the appropriate key number in the 01-12 group activity, see activities in groups 13-16. If you still can not find the key number that best defines your waste, and the waste is non-hazardous, use one of the groups of 01-12 and 17-20 with the corresponding number of 99th if it is a hazardous waste, contact the National Agency for Environmental Protection.

* Step 2:
After selecting a group of activities, you will get a list of all the processes in which the waste is generated, and activities within the chosen industry.

* Step 3:
After you select and the corresponding process in which the waste is generated, you will get the list of 6-digit key numbers. If there is no choice which defines your waste, go back to step 2 or 1 to select a different group activities or processes. If the proposed activity / process is not defining your waste appropriately, you can use the "xx xx 99" numbers. Note: This only applies to non-hazardous waste! If it is a hazardous waste, contact the National Agency for Environmental Protection.

Hazardous Waste


Alternatively, you can try to find the key number of waste (EWC) according to the glossary of waste. Enter the first few letters of the waste in the input field:

Selected waste:

Activity where the waste originated


A process in which the waste originated


Hazardous Waste

If your waste is the waste in the glossary, you will be given several options for defining the EWC.
