NR 662.021(7)(a)4. 4. Hazardous waste broker or other preparer who prepares or arranges shipments of hazardous waste for transportation.
NR 662.021(7)(b) (b) A generator shall determine whether the generator state or the consignment state for a shipment regulates any additional wastes, beyond those regulated federally, as hazardous wastes under these states' authorized programs. Generators also shall determine whether the consignment state or generator state requires the generator to submit any copies of the manifest to these states. In cases where the generator must supply copies to either the generator's state or the consignment state, the generator is responsible for supplying legible photocopies of the manifest to these states.
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. (3), such as to update a company phone number or name of contact person, the registrant shall revise the application and submit it to the EPA Director of the Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery, along with an indication or explanation of the update, as soon as practicable after the change occurs. EPA either will approve or deny the revision. 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. EPA will evaluate the manifests and either approve the registrant to print the forms as proposed or request additional information or modification to them before approval. EPA will notify the registrant of its decision by mail. The registrant cannot use or distribute its revised forms until EPA approves them.
NR 662.021(9) (9) If, subsequent to its approval under sub. (5), a registrant typesets its manifest or continuation sheet instead of using the electronic file of the forms provided by EPA, it shall submit 3 samples of the manifest or continuation sheet to the registry for approval. 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. EPA will notify the registrant of its decision by mail. The registrant cannot use or distribute its typeset forms until EPA approves them.
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.

NR 662.024(1)(c) (c) Any requirement in these regulations for a generator to keep or retain a copy of each manifest is satisfied by retention of a signed electronic manifest in the generator's account on the national e-manifest system, provided that the copies are readily available for viewing and production if requested by the department.
NR 662.024(1)(d) (d) A generator is not in violation of s. NR 662.040 (1) for the inability to produce an electronic manifest for inspection under this section if the generator can demonstrate that the inability to produce the electronic manifest is due exclusively to a technical difficulty with the electronic manifest system for which the generator bears no responsibility.
NR 662.024(2) (2)Participation in the electronic manifest system. A generator may participate in the electronic manifest system either by accessing the electronic manifest system from its own electronic equipment, or by accessing the electronic manifest system from portable equipment brought to the generator's site by the transporter who accepts the hazardous waste shipment from the generator for off-site transportation.
NR 662.024(3) (3)Restriction on use of electronic manifests. A generator may use an electronic manifest for the tracking of waste shipments involving any RCRA hazardous waste only if it is known at the time the manifest is originated that all waste handlers named on the manifest participate in the use of the electronic manifest, except that:
NR 662.024(3)(a) (a) A generator may sign by hand and retain a paper copy of the manifest signed by hand by the initial transporter, in lieu of executing the generator copy electronically, thereby enabling the transporter and subsequent waste handlers to execute the remainder of the manifest copies electronically.
NR 662.024(4) (4)Requirement for one printed copy. To the extent the hazardous materials regulation on shipping papers for carriage by public highway requires shippers of hazardous materials to supply a paper document for compliance with 49 CFR 177.817, a generator originating an electronic manifest shall also provide the initial transporter with one printed copy of the electronic manifest.
NR 662.024(5) (5)Special procedures when electronic manifest is unavailable. If a generator has prepared an electronic manifest for a hazardous waste shipment, but the electronic manifest system becomes unavailable for any reason prior to the time that the initial transporter has signed electronically to acknowledge the receipt of the hazardous waste from the generator, then the generator must obtain and complete a paper manifest and if necessary, a continuation sheet, EPA Forms 8700-22 and 8700-22A, in accordance with the manifest instructions, and use these paper forms from this point forward in accordance with the requirements specified in s. NR 662.023.
NR 662.024(6) (6)Special procedures for electronic signature methods undergoing tests. If a generator has prepared an electronic manifest for a hazardous waste shipment, and signs this manifest electronically using an electronic signature method that is undergoing pilot or demonstration tests aimed at demonstrating the practicality or legal dependability of the signature method, then the generator shall also sign with an ink signature the generator/offeror certification on the printed copy of the manifest provided under sub. (4).
NR 662.024(8) (8)Post-receipt manifest data corrections. After a facility has certified to the receipt of hazardous wastes by signing Item 20 of the manifest, any post-receipt data corrections may be submitted at any time by any interested person named on the manifest.
