|(a) Generators using knowledge of the waste and the
process producing the waste to classify or assist in classifying a
waste as hazardous shall comply with §335.504 of this title (relating
to Hazardous Waste Determination). Generators using knowledge of the
waste to classify or assist in classifying a waste as Class 1, Class
2, or Class 3 shall comply with this section and consider the waste
origin, composition, the process producing the waste, feedstock, and
other reliable and relevant information. Process knowledge must be
documented and maintained on-site pursuant to §335.513 of this
title (relating to Documentation Required), and 40 CFR §262.11(f)
as adopted by reference under §335.53 of this title (relating
to General Standards Applicable to Generators of Hazardous Waste).
Material safety data sheets, manufacturers' literature, and other
documentation generated in conjunction with a particular process may
be used to classify a waste provided that the literature provides
reliable and relevant information about the waste and addresses the
criteria set forth in §§335.504 - 335.508 of this title
(relating to Hazardous Waste Determination, Class 1 Waste Determination,
Class 2 Waste Determination, Class 3 Waste Determination, and Classification
of Specific Industrial Solid Wastes). For classes other than hazardous
or Class 1, a generator must be able to demonstrate requisite knowledge
of his or her process by satisfying all of the following.
(1) The generator must have a full description of the
process, including a list of chemical constituents that enter the
process. Constituents listed in Appendix 1 in §335.521 of this
title (relating to Appendices) must be addressed in this description.
(2) The generator must have a full description of the
waste, including a list of chemical constituents likely to be in the
waste. This list should be based on paragraph (1) of this subsection.
(3) The generator may develop a subset of Appendix
1 of §335.521 of this title constituents by which to evaluate
the waste utilizing the information from paragraphs (1) and (2) of
(4) Documentation of the waste classification must
be maintained and, if requested or required, provided to the executive
director pursuant to §335.513 of this title.
(b) If the total concentration of the constituents
demonstrates that individual analytes are not present in the waste,
or that they are present but at such low concentrations that the appropriate
maximum leachable concentrations could not possibly be exceeded, the
Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) extraction procedure
discussed in §335.505(1) of this title need not be run. If an
analysis of any one of the liquid fractions of the TCLP extract indicates
that a regulated constituent is present at such high concentrations
that, even after accounting for dilution from the other fractions
of the extract, the concentration would be equal to or greater than
the maximum leachable concentration for that constituent, then the
waste is Class 1, and it is not necessary to analyze the remaining
fractions of the extract.
