Adoption of Revised Regulations on Waste Tire Storage, Permit and Penalty Criteria
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed regulations make minor revisions and clarifications to the state minimum standards for waste tire (WT) facilities, establish definitions and operational requirements for exempt and excluded WT facilities, and streamline the permitting process for permitted WT facilities in a manner consistent with statute. The proposed regulations are needed to provide consistency with the CA Fire Code and to provide clarity and consistency regarding Department's enforcement of the storage and hauling of WT. The proposed regulations will specify waste and used tire manifesting requirements for exempt common carrier or a registered tire hauler delivering waste tires to a port terminal and will authorize these persons to provide a waste tire generator with a copy of the completed Manifest Form and other load-specific documents. These regulations are for the purpose of improving the protection of public health, safety and the environment. Businesses with WTs will have: more equitable WT business competition within CA, reduced regulatory duplication, and reorganized WT facility penalty criteria. Permitted WT businesses will have a simplified permit renewal process. Registered WT haulers with ten or more vehicles will have teh option to request more than one temporary registration certificate. Exempt common carriers and registered WT haulers delivering WTs to a port terminal will have manifest system requirements that are easier to follow.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
S:15061, 15308, Class 8
Reasons for Exemption
Minor administrative, procedural, and clarifying changes that do not trigger or mandate any physical actions by the regulated community or others that may have a significant effect on the environment. For example, the inclusion of requirements for compliance with state minimum standards and the fire code reflect pre-existing legal requirements in statute and are for purposes of clarity and consistency. Moreover, this regulatory action is also exempt under Class 8 as it is being taken by a state regulatory agency for the purpose of ensuring the protection of the environment through clearer regulatory standards.
