About this Project

Status: Active
Operational Plan: 2019 - 2020


Under the Basel Convention, other international agreements, and national programs controlling the import, export and transit of hazardous wastes between Canada, Mexico and the United States, the countries must exchange notice and consent prior to shipping hazardous wastes.

The Notice and Consent Electronic Data Exchange (NCEDE) is a trilateral system developed through the CEC that results in increased protection of the North American environment through improved control of transboundary movements of hazardous wastes.

As changes are made to reflect new domestic and international requirements, NCEDE is being updated to support accurate and efficient data exchanges among the three countries and to accommodate future upgrades and maintenance needs.
