The Requirements of 40 CFR 265, Subpart C – Preparedness and Prevention Requirements for Generators of Hazardous Waste

The Requirements of 40 CFR 265, Subpart C – Preparedness and Prevention Requirements for Generators of Hazardous Waste

Certain generators of hazardous waste – Large Quantity Generator (LQG) & Small Quantity Generator (SQG) – are required to comply with 40 CFR 265.30 – Emergency Preparedness and Prevention.  Though awareness of this regulation is widespread, full understanding of it is not.  In a series of earlier articles I looked at each section of this Subpart.  The purpose of this article is to serve as a billboard of those articles.  Complete information can be found by following the links to each article below.

§265.30 Applicability

§265.31 Maintenance and operation of facility

§265.32 Required equipment

§265.33 Testing and maintenance of equipment

§265.34 Access to communications or alarm system

§265.35 Required aisle space

§265.35 [Reserved] – “Reserved” means USEPA is saving this space for future regulations is necessary.

§265.37 Arrangements with local authorities

Well that’s all of them, that’s all of the requirements for 40 CFR 265, Subpart C – Preparedness & Prevention.  While its regulations apply to both LQGs and SQGs, an LQG must also comply with the regulations of 40 CFR 265, Subpart D – Contingency Plan and Emergency Procedures.  I’ll address the requirements of §265, Subpart D in another article.  In the mean time, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
