Medical facilities must adhere to medical waste disposal service compliance guide lines. This includes choosing a medical waste disposal company to pick up and process the waste.
Medical Waste Collections Regulations
Medical waste disposal companies must comply with state laws. Unlike other industries, medical waste is not federally regulated. Medical waste disposal was regulated by the EPA from the inception of the Medical Waste Tracking Act (MWTA) of 1988. However, the act expired in 1991. At that time, states took over regulated medical waste disposal. So, who regulates medical waste disposal industry? Some federal agencies do have regulations for dealing with medical waste, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Additional agencies may also be involved with regulated medical waste disposal. However, in most cases, the states regulate medical waste disposal.
