How Many Sections are in the HAZWOPER Regulation?

The Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) regulation is divided into several sections. The specific number of sections can vary depending on how the regulation is being referenced or interpreted.

However, the most common way of breaking down the regulation is into five sections, which are often referred to as "subparts." These subparts are:

    Subpart A - General Provisions
    Subpart B - Emergency Response Plan
    Subpart C - Training
    Subpart D - On-Site Treatment and Storage of Hazardous Waste
    Subpart E - Off-Site Treatment and Disposal of Hazardous Waste

Some interpretations may also include additional sections or subparts, such as the section on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which is covered in Subpart E, or the section on Medical Surveillance, which is covered in Subpart H.
