subch. H of ch. NR 662 Subchapter H — Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Waste for Recovery or Disposal
Subch. H of ch. NR 662 Note Note: The requirements on which this subchapter is based, 40 CFR part 262, subpart H, are administered and enforced by EPA and not the department because the exercise of foreign relations and international commerce powers is reserved to the federal government under the U.S. Constitution. Wisconsin has adopted these requirements into its rules for the convenience of the regulated community. Wisconsin plays a key role in providing EPA with information on whether Wisconsin facilities designated to receive hazardous waste imports are authorized to manage specific wastes and in ensuring facility compliance with all applicable environmental laws and rules. The 40 CFR part 262, subpart H requirements apply to only those wastes identified or listed under the federal program that are subject to federal manifesting requirements.
