Environmental regulations are constantly changing. Companies who manufacture, store, or dispose of products and chemicals must assure they are up-to-speed on the latest requirements. In most cases, new rules call for facilities to revise operations, alter procedures, and retrain personnel in order to assure compliance.

In February 2009, the California Environmental Protection Agency (CAL/EPA) revised their hazardous waste regulations (Title 22) by adding new training provisions and standards for handlers of universal waste; a change that will affect countless companies throughout the State. Universal waste includes commonly produced waste items such as light bulbs, aerosol cans, cathode ray tubes, mercury thermostats, LCD or plasma screens, and batteries. The same month, in a separate rulemaking, the CAL/EPA added new disposal and management requirements for electronic waste.

As with any major regulatory change, it is important to properly train facility personnel and review operational processes to assure compliance. Additional time will be provided at the workshop to address regulatory questions pertaining to the new requirements.
