IMPEL has developed into a widely known organisation in the environment field and is mentioned in a number of EU legislative and policy documents. 




The Shipment of Waste Enforcement Actions Project (SWEAP) project is co-funded by the European Commission LIFE fund and co-ordinated by the IMPEL Network. The project runs between September 2018 to June 2024.

  • Delivering capacity building activities. 
  • Development of new systems with a focus on providing tangible benefits to agencies using innovative enforcement, tracking and e-reporting tools. 
  • Coordinated inspections. 
  • The involvement of Europol, Customs and national Police Forces in this project to strengthen existing enforcement networks and improve the flow of intelligence on illegal shipments and the actors involved and getting a better understanding of trend and patterns to develop strategies to prevent and disrupt the illegal waste trade.
