Title:CHECKLIST TO ASSIST IN EVALUATING WHETHER COMMERCIAL CHEMICAL PRODUCTS ARE SOLID AND HAZARDOUS WASTE UNDER THE RESOURCE CONSERVATION AND RECOVERY ACT
RCRA Online Number:14837
Date:05/14/2013
To:RCRA Division Directors
From:Devlin
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: This memorandum transmits a separate revised memorandum that provides guidance and a checklist for evaluating the regulatory status of materials that would, under usual circumstances, be commercial chemical products (CCPs). CCPs are not solid waste if they are appropriately stored or managed for use, legitimately reclaimed, or appropriately stored or managed for legitimate reclamation; CCPs are solid waste if they are abandoned by being accumulated, or by being stored, or treated before, or as a means of, being disposed. The checklist is designed to assist in applying this regulatory structure to specific situations and evaluating whether a particular CCP, managed in a particular way, is a solid waste. If a CCP is a solid waste, it then must be determined if the CCP is listed as a hazardous waste or exhibits a characteristic of hazardous waste. If the CCP is a solid and hazardous waste, it must be managed in compliance with the RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste management regulations.
