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.

NR 662.082 NR 662.082General conditions.
NR 662.082(1)(1)Scope. The level of control for exports and imports of waste is indicated by assignment of the waste to either a list of wastes subject to the Green control procedures or a list of wastes subject to the Amber control procedures and whether the waste is or is not hazardous waste. The OECD Green and Amber lists are incorporated by reference in 40 CFR 260.11.
NR 662.082(1)(a) (a) Green list wastes.
NR 662.082(1)(a)1.1. Green wastes that are not hazardous wastes are subject to existing controls normally applied to commercial transactions, and are not subject to the requirements of this subchapter.
NR 662.082(1)(a)2. 2. Green wastes that are hazardous wastes are subject to the requirements of this subchapter.
NR 662.082(1)(b) (b) Amber list wastes.
NR 662.082(1)(b)1.1. Amber wastes that are hazardous wastes are subject to the requirements of this subchapter. When Amber wastes are imported to or exported from a country that does not consider the waste to be hazardous or control the transboundary shipment as a hazardous waste import or export, the following regulations apply:
NR 662.082 Note Note: Some Amber list wastes are not listed or otherwise identified as hazardous under RCRA, and therefore are not subject to the requirements of this subchapter. Regardless of the status of the waste under RCRA, however, other Federal environmental statutes, such as the Toxic Substances Control Act, restrict certain waste imports or exports. Such restrictions continue to apply with regard to this subchapter.
NR 662.082(1)(b)1.a. a. For exports, the exporter shall comply with s. NR 662.083.
NR 662.082(1)(b)1.b. b. For imports, the recovery or disposal facility and the importer shall comply with s. NR 662.084.
NR 662.082(1)(b)2. 2. Amber wastes that are not hazardous wastes, but are considered hazardous by the other country are subject to the Amber control procedures in the country that considers the waste hazardous, and are not subject to the requirements of this subchapter. All responsibilities of the importer or exporter shift to the foreign importer or foreign exporter in the other country that considers the waste hazardous unless the parties make other arrangements through contracts.
NR 662.082(1)(c) (c) Mixtures of wastes.
NR 662.082(1)(c)1.1. A Green waste that is mixed with one or more other Green wastes such that the resulting mixture is not hazardous waste is not subject to the requirements of this subchapter.
NR 662.082 Note Note: The regulated community should note that some countries may require, by domestic law, that mixtures of different Green wastes be subject to the Amber control procedures.
NR 662.082(1)(c)2. 2. A Green waste that is mixed with one or more Amber wastes, in any amount, de minimis or otherwise, or a mixture of two or more Amber wastes, such that the resulting waste mixture is hazardous waste is subject to the requirements of this subchapter.
NR 662.082 Note Note: The regulated community should note that some countries may require, by domestic law, that a mixture of a Green waste and more than a de minimis amount of an Amber waste or a mixture of two or more Amber wastes be subject to the Amber control procedures.
NR 662.082(1)(d) (d) Wastes not yet assigned to an OECD list. Wastes not yet assigned to an OECD waste list are eligible for transboundary movements, as follows:
NR 662.082(1)(d)1. 1. If the wastes are hazardous wastes, the wastes are subject to the requirements of this subchapter.
