Title:EXPORT OF USED OR SPENT LEAD ACID BATTERIES FOR RECYCLING
RCRA Online Number:14825
Date:09/12/2011
To:Finn
From:Stanislaus
Organization of Recipient:RSR Corporation
Description: Spent lead acid batteries (SLABs) are prohibited from exportunder the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) unless the exporter has submitted a notice to EPA requesting approval to export, obtained written consent from the receiving country via EPA, complied with the appropriate export requirements in either 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 262 Subpart E or 40 CFR Part 262 Subpart H, and ensured that the shipments comply with the terms of the receiving country's written consent. All export notices must include details about the proposed shipments, such as the specific recycling facility in the country of import, the maximum amount of batteries they propose to export, and the port of entry to be used in the country of import. EPA utilized alerts to note the proper Harmonized Tariff System (HTS) Classification Commodity Code for spent lead acid batteries, informed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) about the required paperwork for SLAB export shipments, and participated in the development of non-binding guidance on the environmentally sound management of SLABs under both the Basel Convention and the Commission for Environmental Cooperation.
