NR 662.021(4)(b)4. 4. Method of binding the copies.
NR 662.021(4)(c) (c) The registrant need not submit samples of the continuation sheet if it will print its continuation sheet using the same paper type, paper weight of each copy, ink color of the instructions, and binding method as its manifest form samples.

NR 662.021(7)(a) (a) A generator may use manifests printed by any source so long as the source of the printed form has received approval from EPA to print the manifest under subs. (3) and (5). A registered source may be any of the following:

NR 662.021(7)(a)2. 2. Commercial printer.
NR 662.021(7)(a)3. 3. Hazardous waste generator, transporter or a treatment, storage, or disposal facility.

NR 662.021(8)(a) (a) If an approved registrant would like to update any of the information provided in its application approved under sub.

If EPA denies the revision, it will explain the reasons for the denial, and it will contact the registrant and request further modification before approval.
NR 662.021(8)(b) (b) If the registrant would like a new tracking number suffix, the registrant shall submit a proposed suffix to the EPA Director of the Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery, along with the reason for requesting it. EPA will either approve the suffix or deny the suffix and provide an explanation why it is not acceptable.
NR 662.021(8)(c) (c) If a registrant would like to change the paper type, paper weight, ink color of the manifest instructions, or binding method of its manifest or continuation sheet subsequent to approval under sub. (5), then the registrant shall submit 3 samples of the revised form for EPA review and approval. If the approved registrant would like to use a new printer, the registrant shall submit 3 manifest samples printed by the new printer, along with a brief description of the printer's qualifications to print the manifest.

NR 662.021(9) (9) If, subsequent to its approval under sub.

EPA will evaluate the manifests or continuation sheets and either approve the registrant to print them as proposed or request additional information or modification to them before approval.

NR 662.021(10) (10) EPA may exempt a registrant from the requirement to submit form samples under sub. (4) or (8) (c) if EPA is persuaded that a separate review of the registrant's forms would serve little purpose in informing an approval decision, such as a registrant certifies that it will print the manifest using the same paper type, paper weight, ink color of the instructions and binding method of the form samples approved for some other registrant. A registrant may request an exemption from EPA by indicating why an exemption is warranted.
NR 662.021(11) (11) An approved registrant shall notify EPA by phone or email as soon as it becomes aware that it has duplicated tracking numbers on any manifests that have been used or distributed to other parties.
NR 662.021(12) (12) If, subsequent to approval of a registrant under sub. (5), EPA becomes aware that the approved paper type, paper weight, ink color of the instructions, or binding method of the registrant's form is unsatisfactory, EPA will contact the registrant and require modifications to the form.
NR 662.021(13)(a)(a) EPA may suspend and, if necessary, revoke printing privileges if EPA finds that the registrant:
NR 662.021(13)(a)1. 1. Has used or distributed forms that deviate from its approved form samples in regard to paper weight, paper type, ink color of the instructions, or binding method.
NR 662.021(13)(a)2. 2. Exhibits a continuing pattern of behavior in using or distributing manifests that contain duplicate manifest tracking numbers.
NR 662.021(13)(b) (b) EPA will send a warning letter to the registrant that specifies the date by which it must come into compliance with the requirements. If the registrant does not come in compliance by the specified date, EPA will send a second letter notifying the registrant that EPA has suspended or revoked its printing privileges. An approved registrant shall provide information on its printing activities to EPA if requested.
