The AES resides in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP’s) Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). With respect to RCRA waste exports subject to consent requirements, EPA’s regulatory revisions and CBP’s changes to AES were established to utilize electronic processes in AES, or its successor system, in place of existing paper processes at the port or border crossing required to clear export shipments for departure. Currently, exports of hazardous waste, including those eligible for the alternate management standards of 40 CFR part 273 (i.e., universal waste) or 40 CFR part 266 (e.g., spent lead acid batteries being shipped for recycling), and exports of cathode ray tubes for recycling are subject to RCRA consent requirements. EPA’s final rule had allowed exporters to choose whether to follow the existing paper process or the new electronic procedure at the border during an initial transition period until the ‘‘AES filing compliance date’’ defined in 40 CFR 260.10, and to be announced in a future Federal Register action. With this announcement, starting on the AES filing compliance date of December 31, 2017, exporters or their authorized agents will no longer be able to use a paper process, and will have to file certain EPA data in the AES, or its successor system. The data they must file is set forth in 40 CFR 261.39(a)(5)(v)(B) for cathode ray tube exports and in 40 CFR 262.83(a)(6)(ii) for hazardous waste exports.
