CDPH Stakeholder Meetings on Medical Waste Haulers Begin March 25

The California Department of Public Health will hold a series of stakeholder and technical advisory meetings — beginning March 25 in San Jose — to gather input on the interaction of federal and state law for the transport of regulated medical waste. The meetings are being held in accordance with AB 333 (Chapter 564, Statutes of 2014), the Medical Waste Management Act. CDPH will use the information gathered at the meetings to inform a report that must be submitted, according to AB 333, to the Legislature by Jan. 2, 2016. All individuals responsible for medical waste management at hospitals are encouraged to attend at least one of the sessions.
