Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“


Pennsylvania’s regulated medical waste monitoring requirements as per the Pennsylvania Administrative Code (§ 284.321) include:

  • Ensuring the absence of bacterial growth in the waste post-thermal processing or incineration.
  • Ensuring the inactivation of mycobacteria and certain spores to a specified degree in non-incineration disinfection processes.
  • Annual submission of microbiological and chemical analyses of processing residue or ash by operators of facilities that incinerate or thermally process medical waste.
  • Specific requirements for the use of indicators and testing methods for different types of disinfection processes.

The Code also outlines that regulated medical waste is considered infectious unless it has undergone an approved disinfection process. Operators of disinfection facilities must certify that these requirements are met, and the waste, such as ash or processing residue, must be stored and transported in accordance with specific sections of the Code. Additionally, certain restrictions apply to the use of volume reduction devices and the disposal of processing residue.

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