Both the generator and the carrier are responsible for keeping a copy of the claim contract on file for three years after the contract is terminated. A transfer facility is any transportation-related facility, including loading ramps, parking lots, storage areas, and other similar areas where shipments of hazardous waste occur during normal transportation (Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR) Section 260.10). A transfer facility is not required to operate under an RCRA storage permit if the hazardous waste is stored during normal transportation and the waste manifests, if it is stored in containers that meet DOT specifications and is stored in the transfer facility for less than ten days (40 CFR 263.12). A van should not store hazardous waste in fixed tanks while taking advantage of the reduced requirements for the transfer facility, as these tanks are not portable (Question on the monthly call centre report; June 1996 RCRA Online #13786). If the waste is stored in a specific location for more than ten days, the transshipment facility must obtain an RCRA permit and the carrier must comply with all applicable storage standards and permit requirements (Memo, Lowrance to Duprey; June 7, 1990 RCRA Online #11520). Although the intent of the rule was to try to minimize the practice of entering all possible waste codes that could be affected for a waste stream, we believe that producers will use point 14 to list items that are important to them, such as profile data of . B of waste and manual codes for emergency response. As a result, generators and treatment, storage and disposal facilities are not relieved of the reporting obligations of the « mixed and derived rule », land disposal restrictions (LDR), or other requirements for the characterization or verification of waste that may be subjected to generators or profiling facilities, treat or manage their waste. Transportation companies that do not have producer contractual approval must obtain generator approval before making changes to the transportation chain (40 CFR Section 263.21(b)(2)). While a producer may authorize a carrier to act on its behalf as an agent to make changes to the transport designations on the manifest, the producer remains responsible for those changes and for compliance with all applicable generator requirements under Part 262 of 40 CFR. In addition, this power granted does not confer on the carrier any additional authority to make modifications to the manifest on behalf of the generator without the prior authorization of the generator (e.B modifications of the receiving device referred to in point 8 of the manifest) (Article 263.21(b)(4) of the CFR). . .
