How to Obtain an EPA Identification Number

How to Obtain an EPA Identification Number Electronically (Form 8700-12)

Introduction

U.S. EPA now has an online tool called the RCRAInfo Industry Application, or myRCRAid module, to help you get and update your site’s permanent federal EPA ID number.  NMED HWB highly encourages you to submit your RCRA Subtitle C Identification Form 8700-12 through the myRCRAid module.  

Instructions

NMED HWB has provided step-by-step instructions for filling out your form.   We strongly suggest you open or print these files when using myRCRAid, especially the first time.

Do you need assistance with myRCRAid? Please contact NMED Hazardous Waste Bureau via email at brian.holton@state.nm.us or charlotte.duran@state.nm.us, or by calling (505) 476-6000.

DO YOU STILL WANT TO SEND IN A PAPER VERSION?

If you still do not wish to use myRCRAid, the paper form is still available.
