Sec. 13721a.

(1) The authority shall establish and implement a disposal shipment registration system which shall at a minimum require a valid disposal shipment certificate to accompany each shipment of waste to be delivered to the disposal site.

(2) An approved disposal shipment certificate shall be valid for not more than 3 days, and shall specify, at a minimum, all of the following:

(a) The date on which a designated shipment shall be delivered to the disposal site. The date shall be 1 of the 3 days for which the disposal certificate is valid.

(b) The hours during which a designated shipment shall be delivered to the disposal site.

(c) The name of the carrier, type of transport vehicle, type of shipping container or cask, type of disposal container, and applicable department of transportation hazard classifications.

(d) The transportation route that a carrier who is specified by the generator shall use to deliver a designated shipment.

(e) The amount, type, class, and curie count of waste to be included in a designated shipment.

(3) A generator, processor, or collector who is arranging the transport of waste to the disposal site shall submit to the authority an application for a disposal shipment certificate for each shipment of waste to be delivered to the disposal site. The application shall be made on a form provided by or approved by the authority. The generator, processor, or collector shall submit the application at least 15 days, but not more than 30 days, prior to the date requested by the generator, processor, or collector for a carrier to transport the waste shipment to the disposal site.

(4) A generator, processor, or collector who is arranging the transport of waste to the disposal site shall ensure that a carrier who transports waste to the disposal site has been supplied with the information required in subsection (2).

(5) A carrier delivering a shipment of waste to the disposal site shall comply with the requirements of the disposal shipment certificate.

(6) The authority shall approve or deny within 10 days each complete application for a disposal shipment certificate that is submitted by a generator, processor, or collector who is arranging the transport of waste to the disposal site. An application shall not be approved unless the authority has signed the certificate and has assigned to it a disposal shipment certificate number. The disposal shipment certificate number shall be placed on each manifest that is a part of the waste shipment approved on the disposal shipment certificate.

(7) Without requiring submission of a new application for a disposal shipment certificate, upon the written request of a generator, processor, or collector, the authority may issue an amended disposal shipment certificate that is valid for 3 days, within 15 days of the original delivery date designated by the authority.

(8) Upon written prenotification by the authority to a generator, carrier, or processor within 72 hours of the original delivery date designated by the authority, the authority may issue an amended disposal shipment certificate. If the amended date is unacceptable to the generator, processor, or collector, a new application for a disposal shipment certificate shall be submitted.
