26b Criteria 4: Contract
Paragraph 26b contains seven criteria that would be used to determine when used equipment "should not normally be considered waste". Different actors took a variety of positions on one or several of these seven criteria.

Criteria 4 reads:

"Each shipment is sent under a valid contract between the exporter and the importing facility, requiring the importing facility to complete all applicable requirements in paragraph 26b. The exporter shall perform regular on-going due diligence to ensure importing facility(s) and any other third parties involved are consistently meeting the requirements of paragraph 26b"
