(1) Transportation from the United States of radiological, chemical, or biological warfare agents, or of any highlevel radioactive wastes, for the purpose of dumping them into ocean waters, and the dumping of any such materials into the territorial sea, or into the contiguous zone (to the extent it may affect the territorial sea or the territory of the United States);
(2) Transportation from the United States of material not specified in paragraph (a) (1) of this section, for the purpose of dumping it into ocean waters, and the dumping of any such material into the territorial sea, or into the contiguous zone (to the extent it may affect the territorial sea or the territory of the United States), without a permit from EPA; or, in the case of dredged material, from the Corps of Engineers.
(3) Transportation from any location outside the United States, of materials
specified in paragraph (a) (1) of this section, for the purpose of dumping them into ocean waters, by any officer, employee, agent, department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States.
(4) Transportation of any material not specified in paragraph (a) (1) of this section, from any location outside the United States, for the purpose of dumping it into ocean waters, by any oficer, employee, agent, department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States, without a permit from EPA; or, in the case of dredged material, from the Corps of Engineers.
(b) Exclusion.--This part does not apply to the transportation and dumping of fish wastes unless such dumping occurs in: (1) Harbors or
enclosed coastal waters; or
(2) Any other location where the Administrator finds that such dumping could endanger health, the environment or ecological systems in a specific location: Provided, That nothing herein shall be construed as requiring a permit under the Act for the dumping of fish wastes in areas inside the baseline from which the territorial sea is measured as provided for in the Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone (15 UST 1606; TIAS 5639). $ 220.2 Definitions.
