Compliance History Instructions

Searching for your Compliance History over the Internet

One of the most common reasons that Waste Transportation Safety Program Renewal Applications are returned has to do with the Compliance History questions. These questions are referred to as Sections E1, E2 and E3 on the renewal application.

The Department of Environmental Protection allows the public the benefit of checking compliance history issues over the internet. This is a very useful tool to use prior to sending in applications for the Waste Transportation Safety Programs’ annual renewal program. Reviewing your compliance history information before submitting applications can save time and resources by not having applications returned. In addition to having your application returned there are legal implications of submitting applications to the department without a complete and accurate compliance history. Applications that are received that do not contain full and complete compliance histories are in violation of 18 PA. C.S. Section 4904[b].
