NR 665.0056(1)(1)Whenever there is an imminent or actual emergency situation, the emergency coordinator (or a designee when the emergency coordinator is on call) shall immediately do all of the following:
NR 665.0056(1)(a) (a) Activate internal facility alarms or communication systems, where applicable, to notify all facility personnel.
NR 665.0056(1)(b) (b) Notify appropriate state or local agencies with designated response roles if their help is needed.
NR 665.0056(2) (2)Whenever there is a release, fire or explosion, the emergency coordinator shall immediately identify the character, exact source, amount and areal extent of any released materials. The emergency coordinator may do this by observation or review of facility records or manifests and, if necessary, by chemical analysis.
NR 665.0056(3) (3)Concurrently, the emergency coordinator shall assess possible hazards to human health or the environment that may result from the release, fire or explosion. This assessment shall consider both direct and indirect effects of the release, fire or explosion (e.g., the effects of any toxic, irritating or asphyxiating gases that are generated, or the effects of any hazardous surface water run-off from water or chemical agents used to control fire and heat-induced explosions).
NR 665.0056(4) (4)If the emergency coordinator determines that the facility has had a release, fire or explosion which could threaten human health, or the environment, outside the facility, that person shall report the findings according to all of the following:
NR 665.0056(4)(a) (a) If the emergency coordinator's assessment indicates that evacuation of local areas may be advisable, the emergency coordinator shall immediately notify appropriate local authorities. The emergency coordinator shall be available to help appropriate officials decide whether local areas should be evacuated.
NR 665.0056(4)(b) (b) The emergency coordinator shall immediately notify either the government official designated as the on-scene coordinator for that geographical area (in the applicable regional contingency plan under 40 CFR part 300), or the national response center (using its 24-hour toll free number 800/424-8802) and the division of emergency government (using its 24-hour toll free number 800/943-0003). The report shall include all of the following:
NR 665.0056(4)(b)1. 1. Name and telephone number of reporter.

NR 665.0056(4)(b)6. 6. The possible hazards to human health or the environment, outside the facility.
NR 665.0056(5) (5)During an emergency, the emergency coordinator shall take all reasonable measures necessary to ensure that fires, explosions and releases do not occur, recur or spread to other hazardous waste at the facility. These measures shall include, where applicable, stopping processes and operations, collecting and containing released waste and removing or isolating containers.
NR 665.0056(6) (6)If the facility stops operations in response to a fire, explosion or release, the emergency coordinator shall monitor for leaks, pressure buildup, gas generation or ruptures in valves, pipes or other equipment, wherever this is appropriate.
NR 665.0056(7) (7)Immediately after an emergency, the emergency coordinator shall provide for treating, storing or disposing of recovered waste, contaminated soil or surface water or any other material that results from a release, fire or explosion at the facility.
NR 665.0056 Note Note: Unless the owner or operator can demonstrate, according to s. NR 661.0003 (3) or (4), that the recovered material is not a hazardous waste, the owner or operator becomes a generator of hazardous waste and shall manage it according to all applicable requirements of chs. NR 662 and 663 and this chapter.
NR 665.0056(8) (8)The emergency coordinator shall ensure all of the following, in the affected areas of the facility:
NR 665.0056(8)(a) (a) No waste that may be incompatible with the released material is treated, stored or disposed of until cleanup procedures are completed.
NR 665.0056(8)(b) (b) All emergency equipment listed in the contingency plan is cleaned and fit for its intended use before operations are resumed.

NR 665.0013(3) include waste analysis shall perform that analysis before signing the shipping paper and giving it to the transporter. Section NR 665.0072(2), however, requires reporting an unreconciled discrepancy discovered during later analysis.
NR 665.0071(2)(c) (c) Immediately give the rail or water (bulk shipment) transporter at least one copy of the manifest or shipping paper (if the manifest has not been received).
NR 665.0071(2)(d) (d) Within 30 days after the delivery, send a copy of the signed and dated manifest or a signed and dated copy of the shipping paper (if the manifest has not been received within 30 days after delivery) to the generator and, within 45 days, send one copy of the manifest to the department in an electronic format specified by the department.
NR 665.0071 Note Note: Section NR 662.023 (3) requires the generator to send 3 copies of the manifest to the facility when hazardous waste is sent by rail or water (bulk shipment).
NR 665.0071(2)(e) (e) Retain at the facility a copy of the manifest and shipping paper (if signed in lieu of the manifest at the time of delivery) for at least 3 years from the date of delivery.
NR 665.0071(2)(f) (f) Pay a manifest fee for each manifest submitted, as designated in ch. NR 670 Appendix II. The department will bill each facility annually for accumulated manifest review fees.
NR 665.0071(3) (3) Whenever a shipment of hazardous waste is initiated from a facility, the owner or operator of that facility shall comply with the requirements under ch. NR 662. The provisions under ss. NR 662.015, 662.016, and 662.017 are applicable to the on-site accumulation of hazardous wastes by generators. Therefore, the provisions under ss. NR 662.015, 662.016, and 662.017 only apply to owners or operators who are shipping hazardous waste which they generated at that facility or operating as a large quantity generator consolidating hazardous waste from very small quantity generators under s. NR 662.017 (6).
NR 665.0071(4) (4) In accordance with s. NR 662.084 (4) (b) 15., within 3 working days of the receipt of a shipment subject to subch. H of ch. NR 662, the owner or operator of a facility shall provide a copy of the movement document bearing all required signatures to the foreign exporter; to the competent authorities of the countries of export and transit that control the shipment as an export and transit of hazardous waste respectively; and on or after the electronic import-export reporting compliance date, to EPA electronically using EPA's waste import export tracking system, or its successor system. The original copy of the movement document shall be maintained at the facility for at least 3 years from the date of signature. The owner or operator of a facility may satisfy this recordkeeping requirement by retaining electronically submitted documents in the 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 any EPA or department. No owner or operator of a facility shall be held liable for the inability to produce the documents for inspection under this section if the owner or operator of a 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 owner or operator of a facility bears no responsibility.
NR 665.0071(5) (5)The owner or operator of a facility shall determine whether the consignment state for a shipment regulates any additional wastes (beyond those regulated federally) as hazardous wastes under its state hazardous waste program. The owner or operator of a facility shall also determine whether the consignment state or generator state requires the facility to submit any copies of the manifest to these states.
NR 665.0071(6) (6) An electronic manifest that is obtained, completed, and transmitted in accordance with s. NR 662.020 (1) (c), and used in accordance with this paragraph in lieu of the paper manifest form is the legal equivalent of paper manifest forms bearing handwritten signatures, and satisfies for all purposes any requirement in these regulations to obtain, complete, sign, provide, use, or retain a manifest. Legal equivalence to paper manifests include the following:
NR 665.0071(6)(a) (a) Any requirement for the owner or operator of a facility to sign a manifest or manifest certification by hand, or to obtain a handwritten signature, is satisfied by signing with or obtaining a valid and enforceable electronic signature within the meaning specified in 40 CFR 262.25 (a) and s. NR 662.025 (1).
NR 665.0071(6)(b) (b) Any requirement to give, provide, send, forward, or to return to another person a copy of the manifest is satisfied when a copy of an electronic manifest is transmitted to the other person.
NR 665.0071(6)(c) (c) Any requirement for a manifest to accompany a hazardous waste shipment is satisfied when a copy of an electronic manifest is accessible during transportation and forwarded to the person or persons who are scheduled to receive delivery of the waste shipment.
NR 665.0071(6)(d) (d) Any requirement for an owner or operator to keep or retain a copy of each manifest is satisfied by the retention of the facility's electronic manifest copies in its account on the e-manifest system, provided that the copies are readily available for viewing and production if requested by the department.
NR 665.0071(6)(e) (e) No owner or operator may be held liable for the inability to produce an electronic manifest for inspection under this section if the owner or operator can demonstrate that the inability to produce the electronic manifest is due exclusively to a technical difficulty with EPA's electronic manifest system for which the owner or operator bears no responsibility.
NR 665.0071(7) (7) An owner or operator may participate in the electronic manifest system either by accessing the electronic manifest system from the owner's or operator's electronic equipment, or by accessing the electronic manifest system from portable equipment brought to the owner's or operator's site by the transporter who delivers the waste shipment to the facility.
NR 665.0071(8) (8) If a facility receives hazardous waste that is accompanied by a paper replacement manifest for a manifest that was originated electronically, all of the following procedures apply to the delivery of the hazardous waste by the final transporter:
NR 665.0071(8)(a) (a) Upon delivery of the hazardous waste to the designated facility, the owner or operator shall sign and date each copy of the paper replacement manifest by hand in Item 20, designated facility certification of receipt, and note any discrepancies in Item 18, discrepancy indication space, of the paper replacement manifest.
NR 665.0071(8)(b) (b) The owner or operator of the facility shall return one copy of the paper replacement manifest to the final transporter.
NR 665.0071(8)(c) (c) Within 30 days of delivery of the waste to the designated facility, the owner or operator of the facility shall send one signed and dated copy of the paper replacement manifest to the generator, and send an additional signed and dated copy of the paper replacement manifest to the electronic manifest system.
NR 665.0071(8)(d) (d) The owner or operator of the facility shall retain at the facility one copy of the paper replacement manifest for at least 3 years from the date of delivery.
NR 665.0071(9) (9) If an owner or operator using an electronic manifest signs the manifest electronically using an electronic signature method which is undergoing pilot or demonstration tests aimed at demonstrating the practicality or legal dependability of the signature method, then the owner or operator shall also sign with an ink signature the facility's certification of receipt or discrepancies on the printed copy of the manifest provided by the transporter. Upon executing its ink signature on the printed copy, the owner or operator shall retain the original copy among its records for at least 3 years from the date of delivery of the waste.
NR 665.0071(10)(a)(a) As prescribed in 40 CFR 265.1311, and determined in 40 CFR 265.1312, an owner or operator who is a user of the electronic manifest system shall be assessed a user fee by EPA for the submission and processing of each electronic and paper manifest. EPA shall update the schedule of user fees and publish them to the user community, as provided in 40 CFR 265.1313.
NR 665.0071(10)(b) (b) An owner or operator subject to user fees under this section shall make user fee payments in accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR 265.1314, subject to the informal fee dispute resolution process of 40 CFR 265.1316, and subject to the sanctions for delinquent payments under 40 CFR 265.1315.
NR 665.0071(11) (11) Electronic manifest signatures shall meet the criteria described in 40 CFR 262.25 and s. NR 662.025.
NR 665.0071(12) (12) After facilities have 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, for example the waste handler, shown on the manifest. The person submitting the corrections shall do all of the following:
NR 665.0071(12)(a) (a) Interested persons must make all corrections to manifest data by electronic submission, either by directly entering corrected data to the web-based service provided in e-manifest for the corrections, or by an upload of a data file containing data corrections relating to one or more previously submitted manifests.
NR 665.0071(12)(b) (b) Each correction submission shall include all of the following information:
NR 665.0071(12)(b)1. 1. The Manifest Tracking Number and date of receipt by the facility of the original manifest for which data are being corrected.
NR 665.0071(12)(b)2. 2. The item numbers of the original manifest that is the subject of the submitted corrections.
NR 665.0071(12)(b)3. 3. For each item number with corrected data, the data previously entered and the corresponding data as corrected by the correction submission.
NR 665.0071(12)(c) (c) Each correction submission shall include a statement that the person submitting the corrections certifies that to the best of his or her knowledge or belief, the corrections that are included in the submission will cause the information reported about the previously received hazardous wastes to be true, accurate, and complete in accordance with all of the following:
NR 665.0071(12)(c)1. 1. The certification statement must be executed with a valid electronic signature.
NR 665.0071(12)(c)2. 2. A batch upload of data corrections may be submitted under one certification statement.
