Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law (IMPEL) Seaport project: a European initiative to control international waste shipments

This is primarily the task of customs and port authorities, but initiatives for broader cooperation are developing, such as the European Union Network for the Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law (IMPEL), which controls shipments in major European ports.
