On October 19, 2015 (80 FR 63284), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a proposed ruling in the federal register to amend their existing regulations (40 CFR Parts 260 thru 273) in regards to the export and import of hazardous wastes from and into the United States. EPA is proposing these changes to: 1. Provide greater protection to human health and the environment by making existing export and import related requirements more consistent with the current import-export requirements for shipments between members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD); 2. Enable electronic submittal of all export and import-related documents (e.g., export notices, export annual reports); and 3. Enable electronic validation of consent in the Automated Export System (AES) for export shipments subject to RCRA export consent requirements prior to exit. Please submit your comments on or before December 18, 2015. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, comments on the information collection provisions are best assured of having full effect if the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) receives a copy of your comments on or before November 18, 2015.
