Update Information For A Hazardous Waste EPA ID Number

Permanent State EPA ID Number Information Update

To update the information associated with your permanent State EPA ID number, complete and submit the DTSC Form 1358 – Permanent State ID Number Application.

Change in Site Address and/or Legal Business Owner. Since permanent State EPA ID numbers are site and owner specific, if your company has moved and/or had a change in the legal business owner, you will need to apply for a new permanent State EPA ID number by completing and submitting the DTSC Form 1358. Also, complete a separate DTSC Form 1358 to inactivate the EPA ID number assigned to the former site address and/or former legal business owner.

Permanent Federal EPA ID Number Information Update

To update the information associated with your federal EPA ID number, complete and submit the US EPA Form 8700-12 – RCRA Subtitle C Site Identification Form. You have two options to submit the form. We recommend submitting the form electronically for a faster processing time.

 Download US EPA Form 8700-12. The application begins on page 113. Mail the completed application with original “wet” signatures to:

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

The processing time for paper submissions are 10-15 business days from the date DTSC verifies that your application is complete.

Change in Site Address. Since permanent federal EPA ID numbers are site specific, if your company has moved and the location that you have moved to has a federal EPA ID number assigned to it, you will take over that federal EPA ID number by completing the US EPA Form 8700-12. If a federal EPA ID number doesn’t exist for the site location, you will proceed with applying for a new permanent federal EPA ID number by completing and submitting the US EPA Form 8700-12.
