In such cases, contracts shall specify all of the following:
NR 662.084(6)(d)1. 1. The transporter or receiving facility having actual possession or physical control over the hazardous wastes will immediately inform the foreign exporter and importer, and the competent authority where the shipment is located of the need to arrange alternate management or return.
NR 662.084(6)(d)2. 2. The person specified in the contract will assume responsibility for the adequate management of the hazardous wastes in compliance with applicable laws and regulations including, if necessary, arranging the return of the hazardous wastes and, as the case may be, shall provide the notification for re-export required in s.

For the receiving facility that performed any of recovery operations R12, R13, or RC16, or disposal operations D13 through D15, or DC17, a copy of each confirmation of recovery or disposal that the final recovery or disposal facility sent to it for at least 3 years from the date that the final recovery or disposal facility completed processing the waste shipment. The recovery and disposal operations in this paragraph are defined in s. NR 662.081.
NR 662.084(8)(b)4. 4. A copy of each contract or equivalent arrangement established under sub. (6) for at least 3 years from the expiration date of the contract or equivalent arrangement.
NR 662.084(8)(c) (c) Importers and receiving facilities may satisfy these recordkeeping requirements by retaining electronically submitted documents in the importer's or receiving facility's account on EPA's waste import export tracking system, or its successor system, provided that copies are readily available for viewing and production if requested by EPA or any authorized state inspector. No importer or receiving facility may be held liable for the inability to produce such documents for inspection under this section if the importer or receiving facility can demonstrate that the inability to produce the document is due exclusively to technical difficulty with EPA's waste import export tracking system, or its successor system for which the importer or receiving facility bears no responsibility.
NR 662.084(8)(d) (d) The periods of retention referred to in this section are extended automatically during the course of any unresolved enforcement action regarding the regulated activity or as requested by the EPA administrator.

subch. K of ch. NR 662 Subchapter K — Alternative Requirements for Hazardous Waste Determination and Accumulation of Unwanted Material for Laboratories Owned by Eligible Academic Entities
NR 662.200 NR 662.200Definitions: The following definitions apply to this subchapter:
NR 662.200(1) (1) “ College or university” means a private or public, post-secondary, degree-granting, academic institution that is accredited by an accrediting agency listed annually by the U.S. department of education.
NR 662.200(2) (2) “ Eligible academic entity” means a college or university, or a non-profit research institute that is owned by or has a formal written affiliation agreement with a college or university, or a teaching hospital that is owned by or has a formal written affiliation agreement with a college or university.
NR 662.200(3) (3) “ Formal written affiliation agreement” for a non-profit research institute means a written document that establishes a relationship between institutions for the purposes of research or education and is signed by authorized representatives, as defined in s. NR 660.10 (6), from each institution. A relationship on a project-by-project or grant-by-grant basis is not considered a formal written affiliation agreement. A formal written affiliation agreement for a teaching hospital means a master affiliation agreement and program letter of agreement, as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, with an accredited medical program or medical school.
NR 662.200(4) (4) “ Laboratory” means an area owned by an eligible academic entity where relatively small quantities of chemicals and other substances are used on a non-production basis for teaching or research, or diagnostic purposes at a teaching hospital, and are stored and used in containers that are easily manipulated by one person. Photo laboratories, art studios, and field laboratories are considered laboratories. Areas such as chemical stockrooms and preparatory laboratories that provide a support function to teaching or research laboratories, or diagnostic laboratories at teaching hospitals, are also considered laboratories.
NR 662.200(5) (5) “ Laboratory clean-out” means an evaluation of the inventory of chemicals and other materials in a laboratory that are no longer needed or that have expired and the subsequent removal of those chemicals or other unwanted materials from the laboratory. A clean-out may occur for several reasons. It may be on a routine basis, at the end of a semester or academic year, or as a result of a renovation, relocation, or change in laboratory supervisor or occupant.
NR 662.200 Note Note: A regularly scheduled removal of unwanted material as required under s. NR 662.208 does not qualify as a laboratory clean-out.
NR 662.200(6) (6) “ Laboratory worker” means a person who handles chemicals or unwanted material in a laboratory and may include faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows, interns, researchers, technicians, supervisors or managers, and principal investigators. A person does not need to be paid or otherwise compensated for his or her work in the laboratory to be considered a laboratory worker. Undergraduate and graduate students in a supervised classroom setting are not laboratory workers.
NR 662.200(7) (7) “ Non-profit research institute” means an organization that conducts research as its primary function and files as a non-profit organization under the tax code of 26 USC 501 (c) (3).
NR 662.200(8) (8) “ Reactive acutely hazardous unwanted material” means an unwanted material that is one of the acutely hazardous commercial chemical products listed in s. NR 661.0033 (5) for reactivity.
NR 662.200(9) (9) “ Teaching hospital” means a hospital that trains students to become physicians, nurses or other health or laboratory personnel.
NR 662.200(10) (10) “Trained professional” means a person who has completed the applicable RCRA training requirements under s. NR 662.017 for large quantity generators, or is knowledgeable about normal operations and emergencies in accordance with s. NR 662.016 for small quantity generators and very small quantity generators. A trained professional may be an employee of the eligible academic entity or may be a contractor or vendor who meets the requisite training requirements.
NR 662.200(11) (11) “Unwanted material” means any chemical, mixtures of chemicals, products of experiments or other material from a laboratory that is no longer needed, wanted or usable in the laboratory and that is destined for hazardous waste determination by a trained professional. Unwanted materials include reactive acutely hazardous unwanted materials and materials that may eventually be determined not to be solid waste under s. NR 661.0002, or a hazardous waste under s. NR 661.0003. If an eligible academic entity elects to use another equally effective term in lieu of “unwanted material,” as allowed under s. NR 662.206 (1) (a) 1., the equally effective term has the same meaning and is subject to the same requirements as “unwanted material” under this subchapter.
NR 662.200(12) (12) “Working container” means a container that is 2 gallons or less, that is in use at a laboratory bench, hood, or other work station, to collect unwanted material from a laboratory experiment or procedure.
