Major environmental and subversion control on transport and waste flows

Enschede – The police and various partners conducted a major check at the Marssteden in Enschede on Thursday, April 4. The action was aimed at combating violations relating to the transport of soil and waste materials. Previous checks showed that many documents had been completed incorrectly or not at all. Undermining is encouraged by incorrectly completing or missing these documents. The many cross-border transports of irreducible waste also lead to undermining crime and distortion of competition.

In addition to the police, the Twente Environment Agency, the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority and the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate also joined.

A total of 64 trucks, 4 tractor units and 13 vans and vans were checked. Nine drivers did not have a permit from the National and International Road Transport Organization (NIWO). The VIHB registration (Carriers, Collectors, Traders and Intermediaries) was missing six times. Five directors did not have their EVOA documents in order (the European Waste Shipment Regulation). These are economic crimes.

One truck was seized and officers and partners also encountered overloading (2), incompletely completed accompanying letters (6), incorrect license plates (3), a driver without a driver’s license and a non-working tachograph. The NVWA fined the chicken meat carrier given the circumstances in which the meat was transported.

Joint signal to freight transport in and around Enschede

The police look back positively on the inspection. With inspections like these, we hope to send a clear signal that we are jointly taking intensive action against as many forms of environmental crime and subversion as possible. It also gives us new insights into undermining forms of (environmental) crime.
