The USEPA has promulagated regulation establishing the criteria and characteristics of hazardous waste. The criteria established include the following factors: (1) the waste is associated with an identified waste stream or contains constituents which are identified in listings in the federal register (2) the waste exhibits characteristics of hazardous waste as identified by a series of analytical tests (3) the wastes are designated at Acute Hazardous Waste by toxicity tests. The analytical tests relate to ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity and extraction procedure test. The toxicity tests relate to oral and dermal LD 50 tests. The European Economic Community (EEC) countries have established a list of Toxic and Dangerous Waste but each EEC country has a different interpretation of the definition of these wastes. The USEPA has also developed a manifest system which is required for tracking the transportation of hazardous waste from the generator, through processing to the ultimate disposal.
