”Milleproroghe” decree is now a law: until the end of the year, 50% reduction on fines for failure to register or pay the registration.
The endless saga of the Sistri, the waste tracking computer system, now seems to have a new chapter. The validity of application of the “double system” and of sanctions for the violation of Sistri regulations was extended to December 31st 2016. At the same time, all sanctions for failure to register with Sistri or to pay for the registration fee were reduced by half for the whole 2016. These are the effects of the conversion into law of the Law Decree dated December 30th 2015, also known as “Milleproroghe”, the “Decree of a thousand postponements”.
The new deadline is December 31st 2016, and in any case it won’t be delayed after positive testing results of the new tracking system that was identified through the call for tenders organized by Consip Sps on June 26th 2015. Until that date, regulations and sanctions will follow the Legislative Decree 152/06, known as “Unified Environmental Decree”, or TU (“Testo Unico ambientale”), in the form previous to the application of the above mentioned changes. The decree will constitute the reference for duties of producers and owners, Unified Environmental Form (MUD) for hazardous waste, loading and unloading log, identification form.
Concerning sanctions, new rules were introduced with the conversion into law:
- Until the 31/12/2016, sanctions for the violation of rules of the Sistri system will not be applied, with the exception of sanctions for failure to register with the system or to pay for the required fee, which have been applicable since the 1/4/2015;
- Sanctions for failure to register and to pay for the registration fee will be reduced by 50%, but only until the 31/12/2016, and in any case not after positive results of the testing of the full functionality of the system.
The new applicable sanctions are € 7,750 to € 46,500 for hazardous waste. It is confirmed that until December 31st sanctions for the violation of the system’s rules will not be applicable, with the exception of sanctions for failure to register with the system and pay for the relevant fee, which have been applicable since April 2015. No changes were made to sanctions concerning the correct use of the Sistri system, whose entry into force is scheduled for January 1st 2017. This decree came into force on February 27th 2016.
