EPA ID Number Information

How to Obtain an EPA Identification Number

EPA Identification Numbers — Transporters of hazardous waste and generators of greater than 100 kg (220 lbs) per month of hazardous waste are required to obtain a permanent EPA Identification Number. The permanent EPA Identification Number is obtained by submitting a complete EPA Form 8700-12 "Notification of Regulated Waste Activity" application form to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection. Application forms and instructions are provided from the U.S. EPA hazardous waste data forms internet website.

Emergency EPA Identification Numbers — Emergency EPA Identification Numbers are obtained directly from the U.S. EPA. Contact the U.S. EPA at (800) 300-2193.

Subsequent Notification — If your site already has an EPA Identification Number and you wish to change information (e.g., generator status, new site contact person, new owner, new mailing address, new regulated waste activity, etc.) use U.S. EPA form 8700-12 to submit a subsequent notification.
