ObjectiveThis session will provide an introduction to collecting hazardous waste samples, determining appropriate test methods, and interpreting lab reports.
DescriptionKnowing when, where, what, and how to sample hazardous waste can be tricky; but it many cases, its easier than we expect it to be. This session will discuss various sampling scenarios, methods for collecting samples, determining the appropriate test methods to order, interpreting the analytical laboratory report, and evaluating the potential violations. Join us for Part II: Sampling Case Studies to test your knowledge!

ObjectiveThis session will provide an overview of hazardous waste best practices, separation and storage highlighting good and bad examples.
DescriptionThe basic elements of this session will cover overall best practice when regulated entities accumulate and or generate waste, proper storage, documentation and disposal. The session will rely on visual aid to compare and contrast the good, the bad and the ugly waste storage practices at real facilities. At the end of the session, participants will have a better understanding of what proper hazardous waste storage areas looks like.

ObjectiveThis presentation will provide participants with an overview of process-based hazardous waste inspections.
DescriptionA process-based inspection is an organized and systematic approach to conducting RCRA compliance evaluation inspections of hazardous waste and complex industrial facilities, such as petroleum refineries and chemical manufacturers. This presentation will explain the key steps for conducting process-based inspections and determining when these types of audits are appropriate and will describe the benefits and limitations of this type of evaluation.

ObjectiveIn this session you will learn the satellite accumulation requirements as well as common misconceptions and upcoming changes to the regulations.
DescriptionAlways a popular topic! No matter how long you have been managing hazardous waste, there is always something to learn about the satellite accumulation regulations. In this class we will discuss the satellite rules, including those unique to California. We will also identify the pitfalls and most common violations associated with satellite accumulation rules plus discuss the various interpretations and guidance from the EPA and DTSC.

ObjectiveThe Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is amending Californias hazardous waste program in California Code of Regulations (CCR), title 22, division 4.5 to adopt U.S. EPA's Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule (GIR) requirements. The GIR provides additional environmental protections, regulatory structural changes, and greater flexibility for hazardous waste generators to comply with requirements. DTSC is adopting the GIR requirements in two rulemaking phases (Phase 1 and 2). This session will cover the Phase 1 rulemaking that includes GIR requirements that are more stringent than Californias hazardous waste program (mandatory requirements) and regulatory structural changes. Additionally, the session will cover the Phase 2 rulemaking that includes other GIR provisions that are either less stringent or equivalent Californias hazardous waste program that DTSC is considering for adoption.
