Title:USE OF THE HAZARDOUS WASTE MANIFEST FOR IMPORT SHIPMENTS OF MAQUILADORA HAZARDOUS WASTES
RCRA Online Number:14735
Date:04/15/2005
To:Montero
From:Hale
Organization of Recipient:Pacific Trans Environmental Services, Inc.
Description: Importers are allowed to physically consolidate hazardous waste shipments before they enter the US as long as the manifest accurately reflects the consolidated shipment. The manifest must identify the individual foreign sources (i.e., the generators) that contributed wastes to the consolidated shipment and the hazardous waste types and quantities that each source contributed to the consolidated load. Service companies or TSDFs importing maquiladora hazardous wastes are not themselves generators. Instead, it is the individual maquiladora plants that are generators and, therefore, must be shown on the manifest. Provides examples of adequate manifesting options.
