Reactivating an EPA ID Number


To reactivate your EPA ID NUMBER, please do the following:

  • Download the EPA Form 8700-12 (EPA ID Number Instructions and Form)
  • In Section 1, "Reason for Submittal", check "To provide a Subsequent Notification (to update site identification information for this location)"
  • Fill out ALL REMAINING SECTIONS in this form. Check all boxes either Yes or No. Do not leave any boxes unchecked, or it will delay processing of your application. 
  • Remember to include both the federal waste codes AND the state waste codes on your application. Failure to do so will delay processing of your application.
  • Sign the form, indicate your name and official title, and date the form.

Once it is completed, send the form with original signatures ("Wet signatures", not a copy) to:

          California Department of Toxic Substances Control
           Attn: RCRA Notifications
           P.O. Box 806 Sacramento, CA 95812-0806
