The operator or his/her authorised representative has a sufficient command of chemistry and has sufficient knowledge of the characteristics and dangers of the chemicals that may be accepted and of the relevant safety regulations. The operator has to inform the supervisor of his/her authorised representative's name in writing.
Upon delivery, the dangerous waste is stored and treated by the operator or his/her authorised representative in such a way that risks are avoided to the greatest possible extent.
The dangerous waste is subdivided and sorted according to its chemical composition, nature or characteristics.
The operator takes the measures necessary to prevent waste materials that may react with each other from causing uncontrolled reactions or from generating harmful or dangerous gases or vapours.
If it is found that a receptacle containing dangerous waste is leaking, the receptacle or its contents are transferred to another suitable receptacle immediately and any spilled liquid is cleared.
The sumps and the separate collection establishments of the compartmentalised storage are emptied regularly and at least after each incident. The waste material flow obtained is processed in an appropriate manner.
Empty polluted receptacles and polluted absorbing material are stored and treated according to the nature of the substances with which they have been polluted. Non-reusable receptacles are processed according to an adapted method.
