September 1 Deadline for RCRA SQGs to Re-Notify EPA
Small quantity generators must re-notify EPA using Form 8700-12, also called a Site ID Form (or the state equivalent). Electronic reporting via the MyRCRAID system is an option in some states.
By requiring re-notification from small quantity generators every four years, EPA can “maintain more accurate data into the future for outreach, compliance assistance, and oversight activities.”
Why EPA Requires Notification from GeneratorsGenerators must not treat, store, dispose of, transport, or offer for transportation, hazardous waste without having first received an EPA identification number. They must apply for the ID number for their site by submitting the Site ID Form.
Among other information required on the form, regulated persons notify the EPA of their generator status–large, small, or very small.
What About Large Quantity Generators?Large quantity generators of hazardous waste, or LQGs, are required to re-notify EPA of their status by March 1 of each even-numbered year using Form 8700-12. LQGs may submit this re-notification as part of the Biennial Report required under 40 CFR 262.41.
Updated Annual RCRA Training
The addition of a re-notification mandate for SQGs is just one of the many substantive RCRA updates that generators must identify to stay in compliance in 2022. Others include stricter contingency planning requirements, updated container marking standards, new rules for satellite areas, and more.
