Adoption of Final Regulations for Disposition Options for Universal Waste Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) and CRT Glass

NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), pursuant to the authority granted under the Electronic Waste Recylcing Act of 2003, as amended, issued a rulemaking that finalizes portions of emergency regulations related to the management of hazardous waste cathode ray tubes and CRT glass. The first emergency request to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) (OAL reference number 2012 - 1003 - 01E) was implemented on October 15, 2012. DTSC submitted two subsequent re-adoption requests for the emergency rulemaking, which were approved by OAL on September 15, 2014 and September 11, 2016. The final rulemaking allows universal waste handlers to continue to collect and treat hazardous waste CRT devices, CRTs and CRT glass as universal waste, and send CRT glass to a CRT glass manufacturer or primary or secondary lead smelter for recycling, following the alternative management standards under the universal waste regulations. The final regulations continue to require the handler to maintain and provide to DTSC, upon request, specified records relative to such shipments, which enhances enforcement mechanisms, increases regulatory oversight and ensures DTSC rules to remain protective of human health and the environment. The final regulations continue to allow for the disposal of CRTs and CRT glass. Until a handler makes the determination to dispose of such materials, the treatment , and post-treatment management standards for the CRTs and CRT glass are the same as those imposed by the regulations in effect prior to the adoption of the initial emergency regulations dated 2012. The final regulations continue to define CRT glass to include CRT funnel glass and CRT panel glass.
