Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The provisions enacted as a result of SB 489 are intended to increase the security of Hazardous Wastes of Concern (HWC) because of the potential to use those wastes intentionally and effectively to harm the public in a terrorist or criminal act. As such, any person, as defined in Health and Safety Code section 25118, handling HWC must report missing HWC. The emergency regulations adopted in July 2003, inadvertently excluded generators of HWC.
