Title 9. Environment
Agency 20. Virginia Waste Management Board
Chapter 120. Regulated Medical Waste Management Regulations

9VAC20-120-60. Severability.

A. The board intends that these regulations be severable, so that if any provision or part of these regulations is held invalid, unconstitutional or inapplicable to any person or circumstances, such invalidity, unconstitutionality or inapplicability shall not affect or impair the remaining provisions of these regulations and their application.

B. This chapter supersedes and replaces all previous regulations of the Waste Management Board to the extent that those prior regulations conflict with the regulations presented here. Where there does not exist a conflict between the prior regulations and those presented here, no replacement shall be deemed to occur and the prior regulations shall remain. This chapter supersedes and replaces in their entirety the following previous rules of the board: "Infectious Waste Management Regulations," effective May 2, 1990; "Regulated Medical Waste Management Regulations," effective June 30, 1993; and "Regulated Medical Waste Management Regulations," effective June 29, 1994.

C. This chapter shall remain in effect unless amended, rescinded, or otherwise altered by the Virginia Waste Management Board. Where there appears to be a conflict between this chapter and other regulations adopted at a future date, and such future regulations do not specifically clarify this chapter, this chapter shall be controlling.

D. These regulations are completely separate from all federal or local governmental regulations.
