(1). This Decree contributes towards the objectives of sustainable development as referred to in Article 7bis of the coordinated Constitution.(2) The objective of this Decree is to lay down measures for the creation of material cycles where: 1 human health and the environment are protected from the harmful effects of the production and management of waste; 2 depletion of renewable and non-renewable resources, wastage of materials and energy in general, and the harmful effects of the use and consumption of materials on people and the environment, are counteracted. (3) In particular, this Decree lays down measures: 1 which aim at all times to produce the best possible outcome for the environment and human health, taking account of the impact over the entire life cycle, and using the following hierarchy to determine relative priorities:a) waste prevention and a more efficient, less environmentally harmful use and consumption of materials through changes in patterns of production and 3

4 consumption;b) preparation of waste for reuse; c) recycling of waste materials and use of materials in closed material cycles;d) other forms of utilisation of waste materials, such as energy recovery and use of materials as a source of energy; e) removal of waste materials, with dumping as a last resort; 2 to ensure that the management of material cycles and waste materials presents no danger to human health and has no harmful effects on the environment, notably:a) without presenting a risk to water, air, soil, wildlife, and vegetation and the climate; b) without producing noise or odour pollution;c) without damaging valuable natural and landscape areas.chapter 2. General provisions on the management of material cycles and waste materialsarticle 5. To facilitate the achievement of the objectives as referred to in Article 4, the Flemish Government may designate materials and lay down requirements for the use or consumption thereof.in accordance with the objectives as referred to in Article 4, the Flemish Government may lay down more detailed rules for certain materials to ensure their traceability, processing in accordance with Article 9(1), and lawful use.article 6. (1) Natural persons and legal entities who manage waste shall keep a chronological waste register which lists, among other things, the incoming and outgoing quantities, nature, origin, and - if applicable - the destination, frequency of collection, manner of transport, and treatment, of the waste received, collected, transported, removed, or utilised by them. The Flemish Government shall lay down more detailed rules for the contents of and the requirements for that waste register. The Flemish Government may exempt specific groups of natural persons or legal entities from the abovementioned obligation. Natural persons and legal entities who manage waste shall report to OVAM certain information with respect to the waste received, collected, removed, or utilised by them. The Flemish Government shall determine the information to be reported and the manner of reporting.(2) The Flemish Government may determine that waste materials shall be accompanied by an identification form during transport, whether or not in electronic form.(3) The Flemish Government may determine that material registrations shall be kept for specific materials to furnish information on the efficient and lawful use of materials in accordance with the objective as referred to in Article 4. Such registrations may relate to the quantities of incoming and outgoing material flows, and their origin and destination. The Flemish Government may lay down more detailed rules in this regard.article 7. The Flemish Government may lay down more detailed rules for sampling and analysis of materials.ovam may commission analyses of samples of waste materials and soil to be undertaken in laboratories accredited either by the Flemish Government or under prevailing international standards.

Article 8. (1). The measures, as referred to in Article 4(3), should encourage those options which produce the best overall result for the environment and human health. This may imply that exceptions to the hierarchy, as referred to 4

5 in Article 4(3), may be called for when defining measures for certain materials, if such an exception is justified in light of the life cycle philosophy. (2) The Flemish Government shall determine, after receiving the opinion of OVAM, when any exceptions as referred to in Paragraph 1 will be considered justified. In doing so, it shall take account of the principles as referred to in Article 1.2.1(2) of the Decree of 5 April 1995 laying down general provisions on environmental policy, as well as considerations of technical feasibility and economic viability, protection of resources, general effects on the environment, human health, the economy and society, the objectives as referred to in Article 4, and the prevailing European legislation.the opinion of OVAM as referred to in the first paragraph shall contain the principles, constraints, and methodologies used to arrive at a preferred option based on the life cycle philosophy.a consultation platform shall be established in accordance with Article 19 to arrive at the opinion referred to in the first paragraph and to lay down the principles, constraints, and methodologies with respect to the life cycle philosophy.if the opinion is based on the outcomes of scientific studies, such studies must have been undertaken or verified by an independent party. (3) Where an exception pursuant to Paragraph 1 has been granted, the Flemish Government may revise such exception, after hearing the opinion of OVAM and in accordance with Paragraph 2, in light of changes in technical, economic, or social circumstances or changes in insights as to the effects on the environment and human health.article 9.
