The regulations of 40 CFR 265 apply primarily to hazardous waste Treatment Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDF’s) with interim status (interim status means the facility operates prior to issuance of a RCRA Subtitle C operating permit). However, different aspects of these regulations may apply to the operations of hazardous waste generators as well. For example:
- The training requirement of 40 CFR 265.16 apply to a Large Quantity Generator of hazardous waste (LQG) pursuant to §262.34(a)(4).
- The regulations of §265, Subpart C – Preparedness and Prevention apply to both an LQG and a Small Quantity Generator of hazardous waste (SQG) pursuant to §262.34(a)(4) and §262.34(d)(4), respectively.
- §265, Subpart I applies to LQG’s and SQG’s that accumulate hazardous waste in containers pursuant to §262.34(a)(1)(i) and §262.34(d)(2), respectively.
- §265, Subpart D applies solely to LQG’s. A reference to it can be found at §262.34(a)(4), it reads:
The generator complies with the requirements for owners or operators in subparts C and D in 40 CFR part 265, with § 265.16, and with all applicable requirements under 40 CFR part 268.
This series of articles will address each section of §265, Subpart D in detail, taken as a whole, it will provide guidance on what an LQG must do to be in compliance with Subpart D or 40 CFR 265.
