This chapter discusses the role of the Basel Convention regime in the development of recognized fundamental concepts in the field of transboundary movements of hazardous waste. Two regional waste management systems that do not constitute agreements within the meaning of Article 2(1.a) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties are of potential relevance for the Basel Convention: the pertinent secondary legislation of the European Union, and the management policy and legislation of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). This chapter examines both these systems in the light of their relationship with the Basel Convention, and their possible role as component elements of the Basel Convention regime.

Keywords:   Basel Convention regime, transboundary movement, hazardous waste, waste management systems, Vienna Convention, Law of Treaties, European Union, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, OECD
