Hazardous Waste Export/Import Requirements Amended
Lion News summarized the Final Rule when EPA signed it last month. In short, the new hazardous waste export/import requirements make the RCRA requirements in 40 CFR 262 more consistent with the standards of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The Final Rule, which will take effect December 31, 2016, requires electronic submission of export- and import-related documents and electronic consent in the US Customers and Border Protection’s Automated Export System (AES) for each export shipment subject to RCRA export consent requirements.

The revisions in the Final Rule will not affect existing bilateral agreements between the US and Canada, the US and Mexico, or the import-only bilateral agreements between the US and Malaysia, Costa Rica, and the Philippines.

Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.
