1.2. the requirements to be set for the collection, treatment and recycling of battery and accumulator waste;

1.3. the volumes and time limits for collection and recycling of waste batteries and accumulators, and also the procedures for providing a report on the performance of such activities.

II. Management of Waste Containing Polychlorinated Biphenyls and Polychlorinated Terphenyls

2. Waste containing polychlorinated biphenyls and polychlorinated terphenyls is such waste that contains polychlorinated biphenyls and polychlorinated terphenyls, monomethyl-tetrachlorodiphenylmethane, monomethyl-dichlorodiphenylmethane, monomethyl-dibromodiphenylmethane or any mixture containing more than 0.005% of any of the abovementioned substances (by weight).

3. The manager or possessor shall store waste containing polychlorinated biphenyls and polychlorinated terphenyls separate from highly flammable articles, chemical substances and chemical products, in order to avert the threat of a fire hazard.

4. It is prohibited to incinerate waste containing polychlorinated biphenyls and chlorinated terphenyls on ships.

5. Untreated equipment (for example, transformers, capacitator batteries, containers) which contain or have contained polychlorinated biphenyls and polychlorinated terphenyls may only be disposed at hazardous waste landfills, which have obtained a permit for Category A polluting activity in accordance with the laws and regulations regarding pollution, if the disposal of the untreated equipment does not create greater environmental pollution than incineration.

III. Management of Waste Oil Products

6. Waste oil products are waste oils and other waste containing oil products.

7. Waste oils are any lubricants and industrial oils of mineral or synthetic origin (for example, used internal combustion engine and gearbox oil, mineral lubricants, turbine oils and hydraulic oils) that have become unfit for use for their original purpose of use.

8. The manager or possessor of waste oil products shall ensure collection of waste oil products separately from other types of waste, if it is technically possible and conforms to the conditions of the obtained permit for Category A or B polluting activity or of the waste management permit.

9. The manager or possessor of waste oil products shall ensure fulfilment of the following requirements, if the abovementioned activities are technically possible, economically feasible, and also conform to the conditions of the obtained permit for Category A or B polluting activity or of the waste management permit:

9.1. waste oil products, which have different properties, are not mixed;

9.2. waste oil products are not mixed with waste or substances of other type, if such mixing hinders their further recovery or disposal;

9.3. recycling of waste oil products is performed;

9.3. recovery of waste oil products is performed;

9.4. storage or disposal of waste oil products is performed in accordance with the procedures laid down in the laws and regulations governing the field of waste management.

9.1 Recovery of waste oils is a recycling activity, as a result of which, upon purifying or refinement of waste oils and performing separation of polluting substances, oxidation products and additives from waste oils, purified base oil is obtained.

[4 March 2014]

10. The manager or possessor of waste oil products, according to the obtained permit for Category A or B polluting activity, shall perform treatment of waste oil products in such a way as not to endanger the environment, human life and health, and shall conform to the priority requirements laid down in the laws and regulations regarding waste management.

11. The recovery process for waste oil products shall not negatively affect human health and the environment. The oil products produced as a result of the recovery process shall not contain hazardous waste. The polychlorinated biphenyl and polychlorinated terphenyl concentration in recovered oil products shall not exceed 50 parts per million.

12. It shall be permitted to recover oil products containing polychlorinated biphenyls and polychlorinated terphenyls, if after the recovery process it is possible to separate the polychlorinated biphenyls and polychlorinated terphenyls or the polychlorinated biphenyl and polychlorinated terphenyl content after recovery is less than 50 parts per million.

13. It is prohibited to:

13.1. introduce the waste oil products into inland waterways, water reservoirs, underground waters, sea and sewage systems;

13.2. bury the residue left after treatment of the waste oil products at sites not intended for this purpose;
