§ 23-19.12-10. License.
(a) No person or legal entity shall engage in the storage, treatment and/or destruction of regulated medical waste unless that person or legal entity has received a license issued by the director of the department of environmental management. This license is a special category of license issued to solid waste management facilities.
(b) However, storage by a generator before regulated medical waste is treated and/or destroyed on-site, or offered for transport does not constitute a practice requiring licensure under this section. Nor does the treatment and/or destruction of regulated medical waste by the generator of that waste constitute a practice requiring licensure under this section if the treatment and/or destruction is carried out at a generating facility owned and operated by the generator of the medical waste and if the treatment and/or destruction process does not include waste generated by any other person or legal entity.
