Reactivating an EPA ID Number

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

  • If you did not complete your 2017 ID number verification questionnaire, please click here.
    • You must also complete either the online EPA Form 8700-12 or submit the paper EPA Form 8700-12 to DTSC to update your information. Please register at this page and enter your information for your ID number.  More information can be found here.

  • If you not complete your 2016 or prior year ID number verification questionnaire, or you need to reactivate your ID number for another reason, please complete the online EPA Form 8700-12 by registering at this page and entering your information for your ID number.  More information can be found here.

  • Alternatively, you may also download the six-page EPA Form 8700-12 (EPA ID Number Instructions and Form).

    • In Section 1, "Reason for Submittal," check "Obtaining or updating an EPA ID number for an on-going regulated activity that will continue for a period of time."

    • Fill out ALL 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, provide your name, official title and email, and date the form.
