Title:IMPORT OF PCB WASTES FOR DISPOSAL
RCRA Online Number:14807
Date:09/29/2009
To:Acosta
From:Hale
Organization of Recipient:US Coast Guard
Description: Movement of PCB waste from a USCG cleanup site on the Yap Islands to a TSCA-approved disposal facility in the United States does not constitute impermissible import of PCBs for purposes of TSCA. PCB cleanup activity by the USCG on the Yap Islands is subject to all rules and regulations that would apply if the USCG were performing a cleanup in the United States or territory thereof. EPA must therefore construe programs and services regarding the cleanup to be made available. If this cleanup were being conducted in the United States, movement of the resulting cleanup wastes to any EPA-approved disposal facility in the United States would be authorized, even if the waste would cross a United States boundary or the boundary of a US Customs Territory.
