Notice of Variances and Waivers

Division of Environmental Health
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on February 02, 2007, the Department of Health, received a petition for Variance from subparagraph 64E-16.007(2)(a)2., Florida Administrative Code, from Gary Gilliam, on behalf of ECOLOTEC. That rule prescribes a startup procedure to be conducted on a biomedical waste treatment unit prior to placing the unit into service. The Petitioner requests a variance from the rule to allow the Petitioner to vary from the rule requirement for specific placement of biological indicators in the treatment unit as prescribed in subparagraph 64E-16.007(2)(a)2., Florida Administrative Code. ECOLOTEC proposes to use internal temperature monitoring and an alternative placement of biological indictors to verify the treatment unit provides a satisfactory level of treatment.
Comments on this Petition should be filed with: Agency Clerk, Department of Health, Office of the General Counsel, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin A02, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1703, within 14 days of publication of this notice.
A copy of the Petition for Variance or Waiver may be obtained by contacting: Gina Vallone-Hood, Bureau of Community Environmental Health, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin A08, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1710 or by calling (850)245-4277, extension 4273.
