The new Austrian Waste Management Act 2002 opens the possibility to monitor, register, administrate and exchange waste and environmental related data electronically. The overarching goal is to substitute paper based systems for reporting and administration with modern innovative electronic structures. Core of the new regulation is the setting up of Electronic Registers for the strictly separated administration of master data and variable data. Variable data are waste related data required by e.g. landfill ordinance, hazardous waste regulations, or data of emissions to air and water. The Registers have to be implemented step-by-step by 2003, all reporting and monitoring duties due to waste management regulations should be executed by using the Electronic Register at 2005. It will be expected that the register will have 50.000 accesses per month executing 500.000 to 1,000.000 administration acts per year.
