§ 67100.1. Definitions.
For the purpose of this article, the following definitions shall apply:
(a) “Appropriate local agency” means a county, city, or regional association which has adopted a hazardous waste management plan pursuant to Article 3.5, Chapter 6.5, Division 20, Health and Safety Code (commencing with section 25135).
(b) “Baseline year” is any of the following, whichever is applicable:
(1) For a generator's initial report, the baseline year is the calendar year, selected by the generator, for which substantial hazardous waste generation, or onsite or offsite management data is available, except the generator may select the current reporting year as the baseline year for the initial report.
(2) For all subsequent reports, the baseline year is the reporting year of the immediately preceding report.
(c) “Concentration” means the amount of a given substance in a stated unit of mixture, solution or waste. For purposes of this article it also means the range of components typically found in the waste.
(d) “Hazardous waste management approaches” means methods and techniques of controlling the generation and handling of hazardous waste, including source reduction, recycling, and treatment of hazardous waste.
(e) “Hazardous waste management performance report” or “report” means the report required by section 67100.7(a) of these regulations to document and evaluate the results of hazardous waste management practices.
(f) “Laboratory” means a facility where the “laboratory use of hazardous chemicals” occurs. It is a workplace where relatively small quantities of hazardous chemicals are used on a non-production basis.
(g) “Laboratory scale” means work with substances in which the containers used for reactions, transfers, and other handling of substances are designed to be easily and safely manipulated by one person. “Laboratory scale” excludes those workplaces whose function is to produce commercial quantities of material.
(h) “Laboratory use of hazardous chemicals” means handling or use of such materials in which all of the following conditions are met:
(1) Chemical manipulations are carried out on a “laboratory scale”;
(2) Multiple chemical procedures or chemicals are used; and
(3) The procedures involved are not part of a production process, nor in any way simulate a production process.
(i) “Motor vehicle fluids” includes all fluids associated with the operation of a vehicle that is self-propelled, for example, transmission oil, hydraulic fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze, power steering fluid, and gasoline.
(j) “Numerical Goal” means a single numerical percentage reflecting an estimate of the source reduction the generator could optimally strive to achieve over a four-year period.
(k) “Pollution prevention” means the reduction of chemical sources that have adverse impacts on public health and the environment, including, but not limited to, source reduction.
(l) “Reporting year” is the calendar year immediately preceding the year in which plans, reports, and compliance checklist are to be prepared.
(m) “Routinely generated” means:
(1) Hazardous and extremely hazardous wastes that result from ongoing processes or operations.
(2) Hazardous wastes generated from regularly scheduled maintenance or production activities performed less frequently than once a year.
(n) “Small business” means “small business” as defined in Government Code, section 11342(e).
(o) “Source reduction” means one of the following:
(1) An action which causes a net reduction in the generation of hazardous waste.
(2) An action taken before the hazardous waste is generated that results in lessening of the properties that cause it to be classified as a hazardous waste.
(p) “Source reduction evaluation review and plan” or “review and plan” or “plan” means a review conducted by the generator of the processes, operations, and procedures in use at a generator's site, required pursuant to section 67100.4(a) completed according to the format established by the Department of Toxic Substances Control in section 67100.5. Plans do both of the following:
(1) Determine any alternatives to, or modifications of, the generator's processes, operations, and procedures that may be implemented to reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated.
(2) Include a plan to document and implement source reduction measures for the hazardous wastes specified in paragraph (1) which are technically feasible and economically practicable for the generator, including a reasonable implementation schedule.
