Governing Law and Regulations
North Dakota Department of Health (DOH) Division of Waste Management
Comparison: State vs. Federal
· Rules. North Dakota follows the federal rules for generators of hazardous waste. It has additional state requirements in connection with distribution of manifest copies by large quantity generators (LQGs) and the submission of biennial reports by small quantity generators (SQGs).
· Administration and enforcement. DOH's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste generator regulations in North Dakota.
NDAC Article 33-24-03-16
An LQG must send DOH two legible copies of the signed manifest or shipping paper. The first must be sent within 21 days of the date the manifest was first signed by the generator and transporter, and the second must be sent within 21 days of the date a signed copy was received from the designated facility or alternate facility.
NDAC Article 33-24-03-14
Unlike the federal rules, which exempt SQGs from the requirement to prepare and file a biennial report, SQGs in North Dakota, as well as LQGs, must prepare and file a biennial report. LQGs use the federal biennial report form, whereas SQGs must submit their report on a form provided by the state.
