a.k.a. Export-Import Rule

RIN: 2050-AG77 (What's this?)

Docket No.: Not yet available (What's this?)

Current Phase: Pre-Proposal (What's this?)

EPA is considering the development of proposed revisions to the hazardous waste export-import related requirements in 40 CFR Parts 262-265 for the purpose of (1) making existing export and import related requirements more consistent with the current import-export requirements required for shipments between members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD); (2) enabling electronic submittal of all export and import-related documents (e.g., export notices, export annual reports); and (3) enabling electronic validation of export shipment data prior to exit.
