6 CCR 1007-3-8.53 - Basis and Purpose

These amendments to 6 CCR 1007-3, Parts 260, 261, 262, 263, 264, 265, 268, 273, 279, 2, 99, 100, 6 and Part 7 are made pursuant to the authority granted to the Hazardous Waste Commission in § 25-15-302(2), C.R.S and in § 25-15-314(1), C.R.S.

Colorado Hazardous Waste Notification Form

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has developed a state-specific notification form for regulated hazardous waste activity occurring in the state. The new Colorado Hazardous Waste Notification Form standardizes the site information that was previously collected on the Notification of Regulated Waste Activity (EPA Form 8700-12), the RCRA Hazardous Waste Part A Permit Application (EPA Form 8700-23) and the biennial Hazardous Waste Report (EPA Form 8700-13A/B). Submission of this form satisfies the requirements to notify the State and the US EPA of a facility's regulated waste activities and obtain an EPA Identification Number. The Department requires the use of the new Colorado Hazardous Waste Notification Form to notify of regulated waste activities, and the use of EPA Form 8700-12 (any revision) will no longer be accepted.

These amendments revise Parts 262, 263, 264, 265, 273, 279 and 99 of the Colorado Hazardous Waste Regulations (6 CCR 1007-3) to replace the references to EPA Form 8700-12 with a reference to the new Colorado Hazardous Waste Notification Form.

The Colorado Hazardous Waste Notification Form and Instruction are available on the Department's website at http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/hm/notification.asp

Removal of Cite References to 40 CFR Part 266 , Subpart H

These amendments revise § § 264.1033, 264.1082, 264.1087, 265.1033, 265.1083 and 265.1088 of the Colorado Hazardous Waste Regulations (6 CCR 1007-3) to remove the cite references to 40 CFR Part 266 , Subpart H. The references to 40 CFR Part 266 , Subpart H are being replaced with references to either the permit requirements of Part 264, Subpart O, or the interim status requirements of Part 265, Subpart H for boilers or industrial furnaces. Amended regulations for burning hazardous waste in incinerators, boilers, and industrial furnaces were adopted by the Hazardous Waste Commission on June 17, 2003.

Amendment of § 6.04

Section 6.04 is being amended by revising paragraph (a) to reflect the annual Commission fees to be assessed for fiscal year 2004-2005.

Correction of Typographical Errors and Inadvertent Omissions

These amendments correct typographical errors and inadvertent omissions that exist in Parts 260, 261, 262, 263, 264, 265, 268, 273, 279, 2, 100, and Part 7 of the current regulations, and provide state equivalency with the applicable federal requirements.
