    Guys, does anyone know the answer?

    get what information does not need to be included on a chemical waste label? from EN Bilgi.

    Chemical Waste Labeling Procedure

    To All Generators of Chemical Waste,  This is to inform you of recent changes to hazardous waste labels used on waste chemicals. The changes were necessary to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s new Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule and are as follows:

    To All Generators of Chemical Waste, 

    This is to inform you of recent changes to hazardous waste labels used on waste chemicals. The changes were necessary to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s new Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule and are as follows:

    These changes took effect May 30, 2017. 

    Discard old labels and replace with new labels. Apply new labels OVER old labels already applied to containers.

    Request the following types of labels using this Label Request Form.

    Labels are free of charge and will be sent through campus mail.

    Small Hazardous Waste Label  Information

    Small hazardous waste labels are used on materials that are in original containers that still have the original manufacturer’s label.

    Request labels from EHS by submitting an online Label Request Form. Complete labels in pencil (not ink pen). Be sure the hazardous waste label does not cover the original label.

    Large Hazardous Waste Label  Information

    Large hazardous waste labels are for commingled wastes, wastes in containers (whether original or not) that are missing the original labels.

    Request labels from EHS by submitting an online Label Request Form. Complete labels in pencil. All components of the waste must be listed on the label and must total 100%.

    Label requirements for hazardous waste

    Responding is Colwin Chan, group product manager, Avery Safety and Facilities Solutions, a division of the Avery Products Corp., Brea, CA. To enhance safety and environmental protection, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements final rule, which went into effect last year, requires including the words “hazardous waste,” a description of the container’s hazards and the date the accumulation started. Labels, however, are not required to include the identity of the container’s contents, as proposed. Previous Resource Conservation and Recovery Act program labeling regulations . . .

    Label requirements for hazardous waste

    What are the new Environmental Protection Agency labeling requirements for hazardous waste containers?

    To enhance safety and environmental protection, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements final rule, which went into effect last year, requires including the words “hazardous waste,” a description of the container’s hazards and the date the accumulation started. Labels, however, are not required to include the identity of the container’s contents, as proposed.

    Previous Resource Conservation and Recovery Act program labeling regulations did not require waste generators to identify and indicate the hazards of hazardous wastes accumulated in containers, tanks, drip pads and containment buildings. This resulted in a failure to communicate risks associated with wastes being accumulated or stored in different locations, which could put workers, waste handlers, emergency responders and visitors at risk.

    To resolve this issue, the final rule stipulates that container and tank labels must indicate the hazards of such containers’ contents in numerous affected areas. These include areas for waste generator satellite accumulation or central accumulation; transfer facilities consolidating hazardous wastes from different generators; and generator container/tank storage areas at treatment, storage and disposal facilities.

    Fortunately, the final rule allows ample flexibility in how to comply with this new provision. For drip pad and containment buildings, the generator can keep this information in logs or records near the accumulation unit.

    Waste generators can indicate the hazards of the container’s contents using several established methods, such as Department of Transportation hazard communication, an OSHA hazard statement or pictogram, a National Fire Protection Association chemical hazard label, or an RCRA characteristic.

    Examples of how to indicate the hazards include:

    RCRA waste codes must be placed on the containers before shipping hazardous waste offsite to an RCRApermitted treatment, storage and disposal facility, but do not need to be applied before that time. An electronic system, such as a bar code system, is acceptable as long as the RCRA waste code(s) are tied to the specific container.

    Preprinted labels with handwritten accumulation start date and marked hazardous properties (flammable, corrosive, toxic, reactive; or GHS pictograms) are acceptable under the final rule. In addition, label software templates are available that help end users enter the required information and print labels using a desktop printer.
