Fortunately, this resolution was finally rejected at the 1 l th Meeting of CEN/TC 292 in Oslo in 1998 and after the negative results of a national committees' enquiry. Nevertheless, the calls from the industry have not ceased, and the attempts in this direction are periodically renewed, as in this case the legal term has substantial direct economic consequences. The impact of the legal definitions on the waste strategy as an essential element of global sustainable development and the environmental protection should be thus thoroughly understood.
