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.

Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
