"Laboratory scale" is defined in 67100.1(g).This definition was intended to be used in conjunction with "laboratory" as defined in 67100.1(f) and "Laboratory use of hazardous chemicals" as defined in 67100.1(h).To clarify DTSC's intent of "laboratory scale research" wastes:laboratory scale waste must be from individual experiments, not generated on a routine basis, and include substances and containers used for reactions, transfers, and other handling of substances which are designed to be easily and safely manipulated by one person: laboratory scale wastes must not be part of a production process, a simulated production process, a manufacturing process, part of scaling for a manufacturing process, routinely generated from an ongoing process, generated at commercial testing laboratories, or from building maintenance and similar activities at a research laboratory.Attached are excerpts from the Initial Statement of Reasons used for this clarification.
