The verification test will be conducted under the auspices of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program. It will be performed by Battelle, which is managing the ETV Advanced Monitoring Systems (AMS) Center through a cooperative agreement with EPA. The scope of the AMS Center covers verification of monitoring, sampling, characterization, and detection technologies. The day to day operations of this verification test will be coordinated and supervised by Battelle, with the participation of the vendors who will be having the performance of their technologies for radio frequency identification (RFID) for tracking hazardous waste shipments across international borders evaluated. Testing will be conducted in the Santa Teresa, New Mexico-Jeronimo, Mexico border crossing area. Each vendor will provide their respective technology and will set it up and either operate their technology themselves during the verification test or train verification staff to operate the technology during the verification test. Either way, verification staff will be on-hand during testing to ensure that the test/QA plan is followed.
