Description of Petition:

Petition 97008 (LCB R202-97) permanently amends hazardous waste regulations NAC 444.84275, 444.84275 and 444.8632 by amending the reference to federal regulations as they existed on July 1, 1997, and amending NAC 444.8632 to adopt 40 C.F.R. Parts 2, Subpart A, 124, Subparts A and B, Parts 260 to 270, and Part 279 as those parts exist on July 1, 1997. The new regulations provide for increased public participation in facility permitting processes, identify when military munitions become a RCRA hazardous waste, and provide for their safe storage and transport. The federal revisions also include clarification of CESQG disposal options, additional test methods, technical corrections, and industry treatment standards for the management of hazardous waste. The amendments also revise the state definition of hazardous waste (NAC 444.8565) and container labeling requirements (NAC 444.8671) to make them more consistent with federal regulations. The amendments to current antifreeze regulations consist of amendments to NAC 444.9452 to adopt 40 C.F.R. as it existed on July 1, 1997, and technical corrections to NAC 444.8886 and NAC 444.8951.
