The regulation on a new waste management information system obliges companies to register and submit data by March 31 or June 30 depending on their status, the Environmental Protection Fund of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina said.

The rule on registration applies to public and private waste utility companies, waste collectors, recyclers, importers and exporters of waste, landfills, operators of waste treatment plants, companies that generate waste, as well as producers, importers and distributors of products that become special categories of waste.

The waste management information system of the Federation of BiH was put into operation on January 1 (The waste management information system of the Federation of BiH established – Environmental Protection Fund of the Federation of BiH).

The Environmental Protection Fund initiated the creation of the system in late 2019, with UNDP as a partner and as part of a larger project, called Urban LED. The selected consortium – Eurobit Sarajevo and JLZ Sarajevo – has completed it after 15 months and the fund took it over in December 2020, the fund said.waste management information system fbih registration

Waste management entities performing one or more activities in the field, like public and private utility companies, waste collectors, recyclers, waste importers and exporters, landfill and waste treatment plant operators, entities operating green islands and recycling yards and those that produce fuel from waste or use waste as fuel;
  2. Entities that generate waste as a result of their activity or production process;
  3. Manufacturers, importers and distributors of products that become special categories of waste after use – packaging, electrical and electronic products, oils, batteries and accumulators, tires and cars – and those that produce the items or import them to BiH.
