SECTION 27-0915
Inspections and general reporting
Environmental Conservation (ENV) CHAPTER 43-B, ARTICLE 27, TITLE 9
§ 27-0915. Inspections and general reporting.

1. For purposes of developing or assisting in the development of any
regulation or enforcing the provisions of this title, any person who
generates, stores, treats, transports, disposes of, or otherwise handles
hazardous wastes shall, upon oral or written request of any officer or
employee of the department, when properly identified and duly designated
by the commissioner, furnish or permit such officer or employee at all
reasonable times to have access to, and to copy all records relating to
such wastes. For the purposes of developing or assisting in the
development of any regulation or enforcing the provisions of this title,
such officers or employees are authorized after proper notification and
identification:

a. To enter at reasonable times any establishment or other place
maintained by any person where hazardous wastes are generated, stored,
treated, or disposed of;

b. To inspect and obtain samples from any person of any such wastes
and samples of any containers or labeling for such wastes.

Each such inspection shall be commenced and completed with reasonable
promptness. If the officer or employee obtains any samples, prior to his
leaving the premises, he shall give to the owner, operator, or agent in
charge a receipt describing the sample obtained and if requested a
portion of each such sample equal in volume or weight to the portion
retained. If any analysis is made of such samples, a copy of the results
of such analysis shall be furnished promptly to the owner, operator, or
agent in charge.
