    Document DateDocument TitleDocument Type
    05/18/2017APPLICATION OF RCRA TO OFFSHORE OIL PLATFORMSMemo
    Description: The purpose of this memorandum is to identify how RCRA standards (and manifest requirements in particular) apply to: 1) Off-shore oil platforms located within state territorial waters; and 2) Off-shore oil platforms located outside state territorial waters.
     
    05/01/1996INTERPRETATION OF GENERATOR REQUIREMENTS AS APPLIED TO VARIOUS ON-SITE AND OFF-SITE SCENARIOSMemo
    Description: Provides a clarification of the terms on-site, facility, installation, and individual generation site. Contiguous properties owned by different persons require separate identification numbers. Manifests are required for all off-site shipments of waste, even if both properties belong to the same generator (SUPERSEDED: manifest exemption for shipments along the border of contiguous properties; 62 FR 6622; 2/12/97). No manifest is required to ship hazardous waste between two properties under the same ownership that are located at opposite corners of an intersection. Large quantity generator (LQG) and small quantity generator (SQG) waste must be sent to a designated facility. Waste in transportation may be consolidated at transfer facilities. The emergency response exemption from permitting applies to immediate response only. Hazardous waste generated as the result of discharge may be accumulated for 90 days under Section 262.34. (NOTE: Question and Answer 4 of this memorandum is superseded by the December 1, 2008, Federal Register (73 FR 72946))
     
    04/01/1987MULTIPLE GENERATOR LOCATION AND CONSOLIDATIONQuestion & Answer
    Description: CESQGs must ensure the delivery of waste to one of five types of facilities listed in 261.5(g)(3)(i)-(v) (SUPERSEDED: 261.5 now allows delivery to seven types of facilities). A company may consolidate waste from multiple CESQGs as a transfer facility. CESQG waste that is not sent to a facility specified in 261.5(g)(3)(i)-(v) no longer qualifies for the conditional exemption (SEE ALSO: 73 FR 72946, December 1, 2008; 61 FR 34252, 7/1/96; 60 FR 25492, 5/11/95).
