NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
DTSC, pursuant to authority granted under Ch. 6.5, Cal. Code Regs., Title 22, Section 66260.61 has issued an Emergency Permit to the onyx Pharmaceuticals to treat hazardous waste by chemical stabilization. The hazardous waste items are expired and are currently being stored inside a storage area at the Onyx Pharmaceuticals. Because Onyx Pharmaceuticals does not have a permit for the treatment of the hazardous waste, DTSC has determined as a safely precaution to prevent an accident or severe injury, an Emergency Permit should be issued to chemically stabilize the hazardous waste prior to transportation off-site by Clean Harbors Environmental Services. CHES personnel are tentatively scheduled to arrive at the facility sometime on Nov. 10, 2015 to conduct the treatment operation, in an exclusion zone set up and maintained at the location outside the building. Only reactive materials technician from CHES will be allowed in the exclusion zone. Movement, preparation, and treatment of the items will be in accordance with established standards. A follow up report will be submitted to DTSC by onyx Pharmaceuticals. The report shall include certification that the treatment area has been cleared of all residual hazardous waste generated from this emergency treatment and that all generated waste has been properly disposed.
