      (a) Contractual Provisions. - The Secretary of the Navy shall
    ensure that each contract entered into for work on a naval vessel
    (other than new construction) includes the following provisions:
        (1) Identification of hazardous wastes. - A provision in which
      the Navy identifies the types and amounts of hazardous wastes
      that are required to be removed by the contractor from the
      vessel, or that are expected to be generated, during the
      performance of work under the contract, with such identification
      by the Navy to be in a form sufficient to enable the contractor
      to comply with Federal and State laws and regulations on the
      removal, handling, storage, transportation, or disposal of
      hazardous waste.
        (2) Compensation. - A provision specifying that the contractor
      shall be compensated under the contract for work performed by the
      contractor for duties of the contractor specified under paragraph
      (3).
        (3) Statement of work. - A provision specifying the
      responsibilities of the Navy and of the contractor, respectively,
      for the removal (including the handling, storage, transportation,
      and disposal) of hazardous wastes.
        (4) Accountability for hazardous wastes. - (A) A provision
      specifying the following:
          (i) In any case in which the Navy is the sole generator of
        hazardous waste that is removed, handled, stored, transported,
        or disposed of by the contractor in the performance of the
        contract, all contracts, manifests, invoices, and other
        documents related to the removal, handling, storage,
        transportation, or disposal of such hazardous waste shall bear
        a generator identification number issued to the Navy pursuant
        to applicable law.
          (ii) In any case in which the contractor is the sole
        generator of hazardous waste that is removed, handled, stored,
        transported, or disposed of by the contractor in the
        performance of the contract, all contracts, manifests,
        invoices, and other documents related to the removal, handling,
        storage, transportation, or disposal of such hazardous waste
        shall bear a generator identification number issued to the
        contractor pursuant to applicable law.
          (iii) In any case in which both the Navy and the contractor
        are generators of hazardous waste that is removed, handled,
        stored, transported, or disposed of by the contractor in the
        performance of the contract, all contracts, manifests,
        invoices, and other documents related to the removal, handling,
        storage, transportation, or disposal of such hazardous waste
        shall bear both a generator identification number issued to the
        Navy and a generator identification number issued to the
        contractor pursuant to applicable law.

        (B) A determination under this paragraph of whether the Navy is
      a generator, a contractor is a generator, or both the Navy and a
      contractor are generators, shall be made in the same manner
      provided under subtitle C of the Solid Waste Disposal Act (42
      U.S.C. 6921 et seq.) and regulations promulgated under that
      subtitle.

      (b) Renegotiation of Contract. - The Secretary of the Navy shall
    renegotiate a contract described in subsection (a) if - 
        (1) the contractor, during the performance of work under the
      contract, discovers hazardous wastes different in type or amount
      from those identified in the contract; and
        (2) those hazardous wastes originated on, or resulted from
      material furnished by the Government for, the naval vessel on
      which the work is being performed.

      (c) Removal of Wastes. - The Secretary of the Navy shall remove
    known hazardous wastes from a vessel before the vessel's arrival at
    a contractor's facility for performance of a contract, to the
    extent such removal is feasible.
      (d) Relationship to Solid Waste Disposal Act. - Nothing in this
    section shall be construed as altering or otherwise affecting those
    provisions of the Solid Waste Disposal Act (42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.)
    that relate to generators of hazardous waste. For purposes of this
    section, any term used in this section for which a definition is
    provided by the Solid Waste Disposal Act (or regulations
    promulgated pursuant to such Act) has the meaning provided by that
    Act or regulations.
