The new year saw the entry into force of a brand new law amending the rules and requirements of waste management in Russia. Numerous follow-up regulations are to be anticipated. Commercial waste producers, including consumer products manufacturers, and waste management players will need to keep a close eye on these developments.
The end of December 2014 brought in the rapid development of expected changes in waste management legislation in Russia. As a result, Federal Law No. 458-FZ “On Amendments to the Law ‘On Production and Consumption Waste’” was enacted on 29 December 2014 and came into force on 1 January 2015, rather than in 2016 as originally envisaged.
