Chemical Storage Facility – Pesticide Regulations

Spill Containment Regulations and Pesticide Container Requirements

Compliance & Protection:  The EPA addresses five sections of containment regulations for pesticides and chemical storage, which are found below. The Pesticide Container and Containment Rule, according to the EPA, will provide “registrants, re-fillers, retailers, commercial applicators and custom blenders to comply with the requirements of this rule”.

Keep your chemical storage facility properly maintained and managed while storing pesticides and other hazardous chemicals. See below for the Pesticide Container and Containment Rule.

1. Non-refillable Containers: This standard must ensure that all non-refillable storage containers are strong and durable while minimizing exposure to individuals when handling or disposing of wastes.  Non-refillable containers must be properly disposed of in compliant receptacles.
2. Refillable Containers: Refillable containers must be strong, durable and minimize cross-contamination of pesticides and chemical storage that is distributed.
3. Repackaging: These regulations decrease cross contamination of pesticides distributed in refillable storage containers and provide safe refilling techniques, while encouraging the use of refillable containers to decrease container disposal issues.
4. Labeling: Proper labeling practices must be implemented along with instruction on how to properly clean pesticide containers and a statement that identifies if the storage container is non-refillable or refillable.  Expiration dates can minimize inventory on-hand and hazardous situations. With proper management of this section your chemical storage facility will be maintained and compliant.
5. Containment Structures: This section demonstrates standards for secondary sump containment at bulk storage sites. Pesticide dealers, manufacturers, dispensing operations, custom blenders, and other individuals who store pesticides must comply with these regulations.  These regulations are in place to contain chemical storage leaks and spills that may occur.  Furthermore, if a leak or spill does occur, the environment will not be harmed.
