(A) Chapter 3745-52 of the Administrative Code establishes standards for generators of hazardous wastes.
(B) Paragraphs (C) and (D) of rule 3745-51-05 of the Administrative Code must be used to determine the applicability of provisions of Chapter 3745-52 of the Administrative Code that are dependent on calculations of the quantity of hazardous waste generated per month.

[Comment: The exercise of foreign relations and international commerce powers is reserved to the federal government under the Constitution. These responsibilities are not delegable to the states. Therefore, the importation and exportation of hazardous waste into and out of the U.S. is solely regulated by the federal government.]
(E) Any person who imports hazardous wastes from a foreign country into the state of Ohio must comply with the standards established in Chapter 3745-52 of the Administrative Code.

[Comment 1: The provisions of rule 3745-52-34 of the Administrative Code are applicable to the on-site accumulation and/or treatment of hazardous waste by generators.
