On November 28, 2016, the Hazardous Waste Export-Import Revisions rule was published in the Federal Register and is effective as of December 31, 2016. This rule impacts thousands of entities that export and/or import shipments of hazardous wastes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is strengthening its standards to comport with requirements in place for Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries, to respond to recommendations issued by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, and to quell criticisms of its regulations raised by its own Inspector General Office. The changes significantly alter the requirements for international hazardous waste shipments.
