Document Description
The regulations implement a more stringent procedure for reporting unresolved manifest discrepancies involving certain types of wastes of special concern to the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). In designating the types of wastes for which the more stringent reporting procedure is implemented, DTSC targeted those wastes that hold greater potential for uses as weapons of terror, due to their specific physical or chemical properties (i.e., explosive or poisonous materials). These wastes are identified on the manifest as U.S. Department of Transportation hazard division 1.1 through 1.6, or hazard division 6.1.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Other
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The unresolved manifest discrepancy reporting procedure set forth by these regulations does not result in significant effects on the environment. The regulations modify the unresolved manifest discrepancy reporting procedure, by enacting more stringent standards for the control of wastes of special concern. As a more stringent standard, the change results in improved environmental protection and does not have the potential to cause other adverse environmental effects. These regulations enable the DTSC to receive early notification of manifest discrepancies involving such wastes, and thus be alerted of, and help prevent the possibility of the wastes being used for terrorist activities. By enacting these regulations, DTSC is taking the necessary steps for the protection of public health and the environment at a time when terrorist activity is a significant threat in the United States.
