Amendment to Repeal Transporter Registration Requirements
Action 3877
General Information
Action Summary This regulatory action will amend the Regulated Medical Waste Management Regulations under 9VAC20-120. Currently, transporters of regulated medical waste are required to register with the Department of Environmental Quality (Department). This registration is duplicative of the federal registration requirements and unnecessary as the information received from the registration under 9VAC20-120 can be obtained from the federal registration. As this is a duplicative requirement, this amendment will repeal the registration requirements under 9VAC20-120-480 and will amend 9VAC20-120-280 and 490 for conforming changes.
