Hazardous Waste Transporters
To operate in California, all hazardous waste transporters must be registered with the Department of Toxic Substances Control. Unless specifically exempted, hazardous waste transporters must comply with the California Highway Patrol Regulations; the California State Fire Marshal Regulations; and the United States Department of Transportation Regulations. In addition, hazardous waste transporters must comply with Division 20, Chapter 6.5, Article 6 and 13 of the California Health and Safety Code and the Title 22, Division 4.5, Chapter 13 of the California Code of Regulations which are administered by DTSC. Transporters handling hazardous waste of concern must report missing waste and provide a disclosure statement in 2004 as part of their registration renewal or application.
