Federal regulations require large and small quantity generators of hazardous waste to obtain an EPA Identification (EPA ID) number using EPA Form 8700-12 and to submit the completed form to the authorized state agency or EPA regional office if the state is not authorized to implement the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Subtitle C program. The Site Identification Form (EPA Form 8700-12) includes information such as:
- Facility’s name and address,
- Contact information,
- A description of hazardous waste activities conducted at the site, and
- Projected generator status, SQG or LQG.
Very small quantity generators of hazardous waste are not required by federal EPA to obtain an EPA ID number or submit a notification form, but may be subject to state-specific reporting requirements. In addition, in some areas local governments, such as Counties or Cities, may have licencing or permitting requirements.
