Hazardous Waste Determination Documentation

You have indicated that your waste is a Hazardous Waste.

Document the basis of your hazardous waste determination including any test results, material data sheets, process information, and any other supporting documentation. Include all waste codes.

See Documentation Requirements:

0400-12-01-.03(5)(a)3. A generator must keep records as necessary to demonstrate compliance with
subparagraph (1)(b) of this rule - to include any test results, waste analyses, or
other determinations made in accordance with that subparagraph - for at least 
three years from the date that the waste was last sent to on-site or off-site
hazardous or nonhazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal facilities. Such
records must document the basis for the hazardous waste determination,
including those determinations based on the generator's knowledge of materials
and processes utilized rather than on laboratory analyses. Pursuant to Rule
0400-12-01-.03(2)(a)2, this requirement does not apply to individual wastewater
streams in cases where the hazardous waste determination is made on the
conglomerate waste stream.
