All generators who export federal RCRA-regulated hazardous waste to a foreign country must first obtain federal approval of the export by following the federal requirements of 40 CFR Part 262 Subpart E, Exports of Hazardous Waste. See WAC 173-303-230(1). For more information on federal requirements, please contact the EPA RCRA Hot-line at 1-800-424-9346.
