(1) Capacity Building of Customs and Environmental Protection Personnel

Customs offices play a significant part in stopping and preventing illegal traffic of wastes into and out of Taiwan. To strengthen customs officials’ ability to identify wastes at borders, TEPA has developed several reference manuals providing photos and information. Seminars and training programs are held almost every year for the exchange of latest controlling measures and experiences between the customs officials and TEPA. 

(2) Foreign Treatment Facility Reporting 

Foreign treatment organizations that receive and treat wastes from Taiwan are required to submit report online upon the receipt and after the treatment of wastes. More than 50 companies have used TEPA’s reporting online system for the transboundary movements of waste so far. 

The Solid Waste Export Report System can be accessed at Solid Waste Export System 

(3) Tracking Waste Flow with GPS Technology

To prevent careless dumping of waste, accurate control over the movement of waste clearance vehicles is achieved through the application of cutting-edge GPS technology. Designated waste clearance enterprises are required to install GPS equipment on clearance vehicles to provide real-time tracking of the trajectory of each vehicle. This system provides real-time monitoring of around 1,500 waste clearance vehicles, ensuring strict control over the transport of industrial waste in Taiwan.
