Frequent Questions

In the case of hazardous waste imports, the regulation at 40 CFR 262.60(b)(1) requires a person to enter the importer?s name, address, and EPA Identification number, as well as the foreign generator?s name and address, in the generator identification bloc

EPA recommends the following approach in entering on the manifest the appropriate importer and foreign generator information. The importer’s address should correspond to the importer’s corporate office where signed copies of the import manifests are collected and managed. The foreign generator’s address should correspond to the actual physical site address from which the import shipment originated. Therefore, the importer’s name and mailing address should be entered into the “Generator’s Name and Mailing Address” field, and the foreign generator’s information should be entered into the “Generator’s Site Address” field of the generator identification block.
