Three groups of businesses must comply with this law:
Notice: Conditionally-exempt small quantity generators may, but are not required to, join the Toxics Use and Hazardous Waste Reduction program.
For businesses that must comply, there are four major requirements:
You can either develop a Reduction Plan or an EMS that is ISO 14001-certified or equivalent – your choice. Please do not submit your Plan or EMS to DEQ unless you have made prior arrangement with DEQ staff.
A year after the Notice of Plan or EMS is due, you must LOG IN and submit the first Implementation Summary. The Second Implementation Summary is due a year later.
The law requires businesses to keep the Reduction Plan or EMS current and on site. DEQ recommends revisiting the Reduction Plan or EMS annually to ensure it is current. If your business has made additional reductions, you may LOG IN and submit a Supplemental Implementation Summary.
