Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“


The Illinois Administrative Code (1420.102) defines and regulates the management of Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW). PIMW includes various types of waste generated in connection with medical services, such as cultures and stocks of infectious agents, human pathological wastes, human blood and blood products, used and unused sharps, animal waste from medical testing, and isolation waste from highly communicable diseases.

If your facility only produces “sharps”, you can rest assured that’s the majority of medical waste for facilities (~80% of our Chicago clients also only produce “sharps” as their medical waste.)

Facilities of Regulated Medical Waste


The Illinois Administrative Code sets specific regulations for facilities that treat Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW). These regulations include:

  • Treatment facilities must have a permit, which includes an operating plan and demonstration of the elimination of infectious potential.
  • PIMW must be segregated into sharps, oversized waste, and other PIMW, and packaged in rigid, leak-resistant containers. Sharps containers must be puncture-resistant.
  • Packages must be labeled with “BIOHAZARD,” “SHARPS” (if applicable), the International Biohazard Symbol, and generator and transporter details.
  • Transporters must have a permit and follow specific guidelines, including a PIMW manifest and proper packaging.
  • Facilities must maintain packaging integrity, provide protection from elements, restrict access, and ensure waste is non-putrescent. Outdoor storage areas should be locked, and storage should protect against animals and vectors.
  • Treatment must eliminate infectious potential and comply with Federal and State environmental laws. Facilities should have quality assurance programs, periodic testing, and contingency plans for emergencies.
