What happens if universal waste is released during transportation?
According to 40 CFR 273.54, a universal waste transporter must immediately contain all releases of universal wastes and other residues from universal wastes. The transporter must determine whether any material resulting from the release is hazardous waste, and if so, it is subject to all applicable requirements of 40 CFR parts 260 through 272. If the waste is determined to be a hazardous waste, the transporter is subject to 40 CFR 262 (generator requirements).
