The Basel Convention, while stetting uniform global standards, makes provision for the adoption of separate agreements or arrangements on transboundary movements of hazardous wastes. Article II of the Convention determines the conditions of adherence to such legal instruments by Basel parties, and the relationship between the Basel Convention and these agreements. This chapter analyses the relationship between the Basel Convention and the existing regional hazardous waste treaties addressed by Article II. It suggests that the Basel Convention and the relevant legal instruments can supplement and enhance each other to form a flexible regime for types of waste subject to transboundary movement, this is termed the ‘Basel Convention regime’.
