Event Description



Why Should You Attend:
California has unique hazardous waste regulations that include, but substantially exceed requirements of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulation.

 

Attend the webinar to understand the differences between federal and most other states hazardous waste management requirements and California’s rules to avoiding such harsh consequences by internalizing compliance assurance.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Enactment of the California Hazardous Waste Control Law in 1972 before RCRA in 1976; there was no federal model.
  • Understand the universe of hazardous waste which is much more expensive in California.
  • Comparison of RCRA and California hazardous waste characterization.
  • Conditional Small Quantity Generator exemption in California.
  • Point-of-generation requirements in California vs under RCRA.
  • Satellite accumulation rules differ and is limited to 1 year in California.
  • Large quantity generators (LQGs) - requirements for training, emergency response, and contingency plan documentation.
  • No sewer exclusion in California, unlike RCRA, more pre-treatment and hazardous waste tank compliance.
  • Permits are required to treat most hazardous wastes that would be exempt from permitting under RCRA.
  • There are more universal wastes regulated in California.

Handout Materials:

The webinar will include various tables that summarize differences between California and federal penalties and standards, as well as links to regulations/standards and sources of information.

Who Will Benefit: 

  • Management
  • EH&S
  • Facility management personnel
  • Operations personnel with responsibility for environmental compliance in California, or with multi-state responsibility that includes this state.
  • For recent transfers to California in positions with environmental oversight or responsibilities, this webinar is a “must attend.”
