Order No IENW/BSK- … of the State Secretary for Infrastructure and Public Works of [date],
amending the Order on landfill waste acceptance and the Order on soil quality (updating of references to normative documents and certain substantive amendments 2020)
The Soil Quality Order [Regeling bodemkwaliteit] implements the Soil Quality Decree [Besluit bodemkwaliteit], the Water Act [Waterwet], the Soil Protection Act [Wet bodembescherming] and the Environmental Management Act [Wet milieubeheer]. The Order governs, inter alia, the quality of the construction materials, soil and dredging spoils to be used and how said quality will be tested against the applicable standards. This Order refers to normative documents applied when granting accreditations, certificates and recognitions that companies and people must have in order perform certain activities. The normative documents also state how the companies must perform said activities. The normative documents are drawn up in unison by industry and government. The normative documents are not static. Innovations and changing insights may lead to normative documents being amended. An express wish of industry is for the Soil Quality Order will be in line with said documents, so that work can, in practice, be done according to the latest insights and techniques. In this regard, the references to the normative documents are updated periodically. The draft amendment order comprises such an update. There have already been similar amendments to the Soil Quality Order which, at the time, were also notified to the European Commission pursuant to Directive 98/34/EC.
All normative documents to which reference is made are monitored on possible incompatibility with the European Regulation on construction products (Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC).
