November 28, 2016: (FR) Hazardous Waste Export-Import Revisions

The Environmental Protection Agency has made changes to the regulations regarding importing and exporting hazardous materials into and out of the United States.
The changes were made in an effort to provide more protection to human health and the environment, to ensure the regulations were consistent with current import/export requirements for shipments between members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and development, and to enable electronic submittal of all documents relating to the import/export of hazardous materials.
The final rule will be effective as of December 31, 2016.
