Report Deadline Passed - Report Open for Inactivated EPA ID Users

The 2017 electronic Verification Questionnaire (eVQ) cycle ended on Sunday, December 31, 2017. If you did not complete your 2017 eVQ, your ID number(s) were inactivated.

To reactivate your ID Number(s), you must log into the eVQ system and complete the 2017 eVQ. Once you have complete the eVQ and DTSC has received the full payment (If fees are due), your ID Number(s) will automatically be reactivated.

DTSC will not be accepting Form 1358 to reactive numbers that were inactivated because the eVQ was not completed.

The final date to complete the 2017 eVQ will be Sunday, April 01, 2018. After this date, you will no longer be able to log into the eVQ system.


If you did not complete your 2016 Verification Questionnaire, your ID number was inactivated. You must submit DTSC Form 1358 to reactivate your ID Number(s). Please indicate the reason for reactivation on the DTSC Form 1358 as Verification Questionnaire.

What is the purpose of the Annual EPA ID Number Verification Questionnaire?

Anyone who generates, transports, offers for transport, treats, stores, or disposes of hazardous waste must have a hazardous waste identification (ID) number, which is used to identify the hazardous waste handler and track the hazardous waste from the point of origin to its final disposal ("cradle to grave"). The purpose of this verification is to ensure that the information on record for the EPA ID Number is correct and current.

The annual Verification Questionnaire and fees assessment for hazardous waste ID numbers and hazardous waste manifests is required by Health & Safety Code section 25205.15 and 25205.16. Any generator, transporter, or facility operator who fails to provide information required by the department to verify the accuracy of hazardous waste activity data shall be subject to suspension of any and all identification numbers assigned and to any other enforcement action (Health & Safety Code section 25205.16(c)).
