In accordance with Article 15 of EC Directive 1999/31/EC of 26 April 1999 on the landfill of waste, every three years the OVAM sends to the European Commission through the appropriate channels a report about the implementation of this EC Directive, in which special attention is devoted to the Flemish strategies that must be developed in compliance with Article 5 of the same Directive for waste and forms of treatment not acceptable in landfills. The report shall be drawn up on the basis of a questionnaire or outline drafted by the European Commission according to the procedure laid down in Article 6 of EC Directive 91/692/EEC.


The report shall be sent to the European Commission, in each case within nine months of the end of the three-year period covered by it.
