The problem of transboundary transport of toxic and dangerous wastes and their disposal has become a major environmental issue acknowledged by the international community. Various international organizations initiated the elaboration of international legal instruments to address this issue. Among these legal instruments, the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal, negotiated under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is the first to attempt comprehensive regulation of transboundary movements and the disposal of hazardous waste on a global scale.
