Declaration of the disposal of catering waste from international means of transport

Form to declare the disposal of catering waste from a vessel or aircraft that has re-entered the EU after international travel.



Any food waste produced after a vessel or aircraft has re-entered the EU will be considered domestic waste if:

  • all areas on the vessel that come into contact with food (galley, store rooms) have been cleaned and disinfected
  • any restocking is done after the vessel has returned to EU territory

This form must be completed as a written declaration to confirm that these actions have been done.

This form does not apply to commercial aircraft.

For further information, see the guidance on handling and disposing of international catering waste.
