EU WFD Enforcement Laws

Question: Where can I find information about the laws EU member states have made to enforce the EU Waste Framework Directive?

Answer: The EU Waste Framework Directive (WFD) set a July 2020 deadline for EU member states to transpose the directive’s requirements into their national legal frameworks. This process allows the EU WFD’s requirements to be legally enforced.

The official list of EU members’ legal transpositions is available here, along with more detailed information and links for referenced legislation. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA)’s EU WFD page is also a good source for the latest information on this subject.
