Purpose of the meeting
The Technical Advisory Committee (15A) for Amendment of the Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (9 VAC 20-60-10 et seq.) will meet in two sessions to consider any modifications that may be appropriate to the regulations. All aspects of the regulations are possible subjects of discussion by the committee. The last comprehensive review of the regulations was Amendment 14 (1999). Amendment 14 included a change in the regulation's structure by incorporating similar federal text into the Commonwealth's regulations by reference and deleting large portions of text that was redundant to the newly incorporated federal text. On July 11, 2000 the Virginia Waste Management Board adopted the date of July 1, 2000, as the date of the federal text that was incorporated into the Commonwealth's regulations. This action coincidentally incorporated many changes that were amendments to the federal regulations, which were adopted after the date of incorporated federal text as previously defined by Amendment 14. The committee may consider whether adjustments or exceptions to the Commonwealth's regulations should be made in those parts related to incorporation of federal text. It may consider further use of the incorporation of federal regulation and additional removal of text that is redundant to federal regulatory text incorporated by reference. It may consider correction of errors and any other change it feels will be a constructive change to the regulations.
