(5) A transporter of hazardous wastes must comply with requirements applicable to generators, as set forth in this Part, if the transporter:
(i) transports hazardous waste into the United States from abroad; or
(ii) mixes hazardous wastes of different DOT shipping descriptions by placing them into a single container.
(6) Transporters as temporary storage facilities. Transporters may store hazardous waste, incidental to transport, for up to 10 days as provided for in section 373-1.1(d)(1)(xv) of this Title.
(7) Transporters are permitted to transfer hazardous waste, incidental to transport, provided that:
(ii) transfer of hazardous waste from one transporter to another is indicated on the manifest as Second Transporter; and
(iii) if consolidation of loads takes place by any method, including but not limited to moving containers from one transport vehicle to another or containers are removed from transport vehicles prior to being reloaded, the transfer or storage area must be designed to meet secondary containment requirements in accordance with section 373-2.9(f) of this Title.
(8) A transporter of hazardous waste, except “State-only waste,” subject to the manifesting requirements of this Part, or subject to the waste management standards of Subpart 374-3 of this Title, that is being imported from or exported to any of the countries listed in section 372.5(h)(1)(i) of this Part for purposes of recovery is subject to this section and to all other relevant requirements of section 372.5(h) of this Part.
(b) Manifest requirements.
(1) Before transporting the hazardous waste, the transporter of such waste must sign and date the manifest acknowledging acceptance of the hazardous waste from the generator. The transporter must return a signed copy to the generator before leaving the generator's property, and assure that copies of the manifest are available for additional transporters, if necessary.
(2) The transporter must ensure that the manifest accompanies the hazardous waste. The manifest must be kept in the transportation vehicle in an easily accessible place when the shipment is in transit. In the case of exports, the transporter must ensure that a copy of the EPA acknowledgment of consent also accompanies the hazardous waste.
(i) The transporter must deliver the entire quantity of hazardous waste which the transporter accepted from a generator or a transporter to:
(a) the designated facility listed on the manifest;
(b) the alternate designated facility if the hazardous waste cannot be delivered to the designated facility because an emergency prevents delivery;
(c) the next designated transporter, as specified on the manifest; or
(d) the place outside the United States designated by the generator.
(ii) If the hazardous waste cannot be delivered in accordance with subparagraph (i) of this paragraph because of an emergency condition other than rejection of the waste by the designated facility, then the transporter must contact the generator for further directions and must revise the manifest according to the generator's instructions.
(iii) If the hazardous waste is rejected by the designated facility while the transporter is on the facility's premises, then the transporter must obtain the following:
(a) for a partial load rejection or for regulated quantities of container residues, a copy of the original manifest that includes the facility's date and signature, and the manifest tracking number of the new manifest that will accompany the shipment, and a description of the partial rejection or container residue in the discrepancy block of the original manifest. The transporter must retain a copy of this manifest in accordance with subdivision (c) of this section, and give the remaining copies of the original manifest to the rejecting designated facility. If the transporter is forwarding the rejected part of the shipment or a regulated container residue to an alternate facility or returning it to the generator, the transporter must obtain a new manifest to accompany the shipment, and the new manifest must include all the information required in section 373-2.5(b)(1)(v)(a) through (f) or (vi)(a) through (f), or 373-3.5(b)(1)(v)(a) through (f) or (vi)(a) through (f) of this Title;

The transporter must retain a copy of the manifest in accordance with subdivision (c) of this section, and give a copy of the manifest containing this information to the rejecting designated facility. If the original manifest is not used, then the transporter must obtain a new manifest for the shipment and comply with section 373-2.5(b)(1)(v)(a) through (f) or 373-3.5(b)(1)(v)(a) through (f) of this Title;
(5) A transporter who delivers hazardous waste to another transporter to the designated facility must:

In the case of exports other than those subject to section 372.5(h) of this Part, a transporter may not accept such waste from a primary exporter or other person:
(1) if the transporter knows the shipment does not conform to the EPA acknowledgment of consent; and
(2) unless, in addition to a manifest signed by the generator in accordance with the provisions of section 372.2(b) of this Part, the transporter is also provided with an EPA acknowledgment of consent which, except for shipment by rail, is attached to the manifest or (shipping paper for exports by water [bulk shipment]);

(4) the date the waste is accepted;
(c) the transporter carries this record when transporting waste to the reclamation facility; and
(d) the transporter retains these records for a period of at least three years after termination or expiration of the agreement.
(c) Recordkeeping requirements.
(1) A transporter of hazardous waste must keep a copy of the manifest signed by the generator, the transporter and the next designated transporter or the owner or operator of the designated facility, for a period of three years from the date the hazardous waste was accepted by the initial transporter.

(i) In the event of a discharge of hazardous waste during transportation, the transporter must take appropriate immediate action to protect human health and the environment (e.g., notify local authorities, dike the discharge areas).
(ii) If a discharge of hazardous waste occurs during transportation and an official (State or local government or a Federal agency), acting within the scope of his/her official responsibilities, determines that immediate removal of the waste is necessary to protect human health or the environment, that official may authorize the removal of the waste by transporters who do not have EPA identification numbers and without the preparation of a manifest.
(iii) Any waste transporter who has discharged hazardous waste must:
(a) give notice, if required by 49 CFR 171.15 (see section 370.1[e] of this Title), to the National Response Center (800-424-8802 or 202-426-2675) and the department (518-457-7362);
