What are the requirements for U.S. generators of hazardous waste under Part 262, Subpart H?

When hazardous waste is destined for recovery operations within the OECD, a U.S. generator may have several requirements under Part 262, Subpart H if the generator acts as a notifier. A notifier is the person who has possession or legal control of the waste when the transfrontier movement of the waste occurs and who proposes the waste movement (Section 262.81). A generator acting as a notifier must, as applicable, notify EPA, who will obtain consent from the importing and transit countries (Section 262.83), track the waste shipment (Section 262.84), execute a written contract with the recovery facility (Section 262.85), report to EPA annually and keep records (Section 262.87).
