NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
DTSC, pursuant to authority granted under CA Code of Regulations, Title 22, Division 4.5, Chapter 20, Section 66270.61, has issued an Emergency Permit to Roche Molecular Systems (EPA ID# CAL000140551) to treat hazardous waste by controlled reaction with a chemical solution. It has been determined that these items are or may be highly reactive and or ignitable and must be stabilized prior to being transported offsite. The items are expired and currently being stored at the Roche Molecular Systems does not have a permit for the treatment of the hazardous waste, therefore DTSC has determined as a safety 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 CHES. The treatment of the hazardous waste involves the addition of solution to the containers to reduce the reactive or ignitable characteristics of the chemicals. Treatment will take place within a designated exclusion zone. Movement, preparation, and treatment of the items will be in accordance with established standards.
