Wastes that were once regulated and managed in accord with this chapter, and that are no longer regulated medical waste, shall be managed in accordance with such other regulations of the board that apply.

If the solid waste is no longer regulated medical waste because of treatment, the generator and the permitted facility shall maintain a record of the treatment for three years after treatment to include the date and type of treatment, type and amount of regulated medical waste treated, and the individual operating the treatment unit. Records for on-site treatment and shipping papers from commercial carriers for off-site treatment shall be maintained by the generator. Records for off-site treatment and shipping papers for off-site treatment shall be maintained by all permitted facilities. Generators or permitted facilities with more than one unit may maintain a centralized system of recordkeeping. All records shall be available for review by the department upon request.
