10 CSR 25-3.260 - Definitions, Modifications to Incorporations and Confidential Business Information

PURPOSE: All of the rules in Title 10, Division 25 relating to hazardous waste generators, permitted hazardous waste facilities, and hazardous waste transporters were reviewed as part of the department's Red Tape Reduction initiative for the purpose of reducing regulations that unnecessarily burden individuals and businesses while doing little to protect or improve public health and safety and our natural resources. The purpose of this amendment is to make changes consistent with this initiative to this rule.

(1) The regulations set forth in 40 CFR part 260, July 1, 2013, as published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration, Superintendent of Documents, Pittsburgh, PA 15250-7954, and the changes made at 78 FR 0, July 31, 2013, are incorporated by reference, except for the changes made at 70 FR 53453, September 8, 2005, subject to the following additions, modifications, substitutions, or deletions. This rule does not incorporate any subsequent amendments or additions.
(A) Except where otherwise noted in sections (2) and (3) of this rule or elsewhere in 10 CSR 25, any federal agency, administrator, regulation, or statute that is referenced in 40 CFR parts 260-270, 273, and 279, and incorporated by reference in 10 CSR 25, shall be deleted and in its place add the comparable state department, director, rule, or statute. Where conflicting rules exist in 10 CSR 25, the more stringent rules control.

When a person accumulates one hundred kilograms (100 kg) of nonacute hazardous waste or one kilogram (1 kg) of acutely hazardous waste or the aggregate of one hundred kilograms (100 kg) of acute and nonacute hazardous waste, whichever first occurs, that person is subject to the provisions in 10 CSR 25.

25. The term variance in 10 CSR 25 means an action of the commission pursuant to section 260.405, RSMo. In any case where a federal rule that is incorporated by reference in 10 CSR 25 uses the term variance but the case-by-case decision or action of the department or commission does not meet the description of a variance pursuant to section 260.405, RSMo, the decision or action will be considered an exception or exemption based on the conditions set forth in the federal regulation incorporated by reference or the omission from regulation.
26. The rules of grammatical construction in 40 CFR 260.3 incorporated by reference in this rule also apply to the incorporated text of 40 CFR parts 266 and 270 and to 10 CSR 25.
