AN ACT relative to allowing alternative certified hazardous waste coordinator programs.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

168:1 Alternate Certified Hazardous Waste Coordinator Programs; Rulemaking. Amend RSA 147-A:3, XXVI to read as follows:

XXVI. Administration of a hazardous waste coordinator certification program and alternate programs pursuant to RSA 147-A:5, III, including criteria relating to education and experience and the procedures for initial certification of hazardous waste coordinators as well as continuing education requirements for renewals, and associated fees.

168:2 Alternate Certified Hazardous Waste Coordinator Programs. Amend RSA 147-A:5, III(a) to read as follows:

III.(a) Each hazardous waste generator that generates more than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month shall have on staff at the facility where the hazardous waste is generated a hazardous waste coordinator certified by the department. The certified hazardous waste coordinator shall be responsible for ensuring that the generator is aware of and in compliance with applicable requirements relating to hazardous waste management, including but not limited to storage, transportation, and disposal. Certification shall not be transferable. Initial certification shall be valid for one year and may be renewed for subsequent one-year terms. The department may charge a reasonable fee to cover expenses for education and training programs that fulfill the initial certification and continuing education requirements. The commissioner may authorize alternative certified hazardous waste coordinator programs provided the program demonstrates equivalent on-site staffing, training, continuing education, and management organization to meet the responsibilities of this paragraph.

168:3 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
