This document provides guidance on best practices for the assessment of construction and demolition waste streams prior to demolition or renovation of buildings and infrastructures, called "waste audit". The aim of the guidance is to facilitate and maximize recovery of materials and components from demolition or renovation of buildings and infrastructures for beneficial reuse and recycling, without compromising the safety measures and practices outlined in the European Demolition Protocol. The scope of the guideline includes waste from construction, renovation and demolition works. This guideline is aligned with European strategies for Construction sector and waste management.

This document is intended to support environmental improvement efforts of all actors in the construction sector (based on EMAS regulation). The document covers the whole value added chain of the construction sector, from land planning to the building end of life (the economical life cycle) and from selection of best environmentally friendly materials to waste treatment and recycling and reuse cycles. This document is not only for EMAS registered organisations but for all actors in the sector with or without a certified or registered environmental management system. The heart of the document is the 'Best environmental management practices' (BEMPs) description. Chapter 7 is here of particular importance, since it tackles aspects related to buildings deconstruction at the end of their life cycle.

The article discusses filling gaps in the ELV waste management. Particular efforts must be made to improve the treatment methods of waste of the multi-material parts, which are increasing in the vehicle construction. Existing methods of waste treatment are inefficient, therefore effective methods of large-scale management should be promptly implemented.
