Using myRCRAid

Introduction

U.S. EPA now has an online tool called myRCRAid, a module of the RCRAInfo Industry Application, to help you get and update your site’s permanent federal EPA ID number. DTSC highly encourages you to use this online tool. You can also request access to the electronic manifest (e-Manifest) System module of RCRAInfo to view, enter, and/or sign e-Manifests at the same link you register and access myRCRAid.

Why use myRCRAid?

  1.  Cuts processing time in half! 
  2.  When updating information on your federal EPA ID number, you only need to enter the changes.
  3.  No more lost mail!
  4.  No more paper!
  5.  Did we say it cuts the processing time in half?

NOTICE: If you are a TRANSPORTER, You MUST send in a paper U.S. EPA Form 8700-12 (with an original, “wet”, signature). Please send your application to:

Department of Toxic Substances Control
