For those facilities who must develop a hazardous waste emergency contingency plan, the following is guidance on where you are required to send copies and updates for the plan. Note, in addition to the EPA requirements, DOT now has emergency and safety plan requirements.

Where to Send Your Hazardous Waste Contingency Plan

Large quantity hazardous waste generators as well as hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities must have a contingency plan for hazardous waste spills, fires, explosions. According to 40 CFR 262.34(a)4 and 40 CFR 265.53, a copy of your facility's contingency plan should be kept at the facility, and copies should be submitted to all local police departments, fire departments, hospitals, and state and local emergency response teams that may be called upon to provide emergency services. This includes the local emergency planning committee (LEPC) in your area.
