Export And Import Of Hazardous Waste

Export of hazardous waste from the U.S. to another country is prohibited unless:

• Notification of intent to export has been provided to the EPA at least 60 days in advance of shipment;

• The receiving country has consented to accept the waste;

• A copy of the EPA "Acknowledgment of Consent" accompanies the shipments; and

• The hazardous waste shipment conforms to the terms of the receiving country's consent (40 CFR §262.52).

Any import of hazardous waste from another country into the U.S. must comply with the requirements of 40 CFR Part 262, i.e., the importer becomes the generator, for RCRA regulatory purposes.
