e-GAR is the system of electronic waste monitoring guides, to be used in the transportation of waste. This system made it possible to dematerialize the waste monitoring guides, previously on physical support, substantially changing the practices adopted since 1997 and implying the adaptation of companies to new rules in the context of waste transportation. Since January 2018, only digital guides can be used.
e-GAR are issued in the Integrated Electronic Waste Registration System (SIRER), which is a waste-only information system, made up of modules that work at SILIAMB, available on the institutional website of the Portuguese Environment Agency, and to which applies Ordinance No. 145/2017, of April 26, as amended by Ordinance No. 28/2019, of January 18.
