Jubilant Cadista Pharmaceuticals Settles Hazardous Waste Violations At Salisbury Facility

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Jubilant Cadista Pharmaceuticals Inc. will pay a $35,000 penalty to settle alleged violations of hazardous waste regulations at its pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Salisbury.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the settlement addresses compliance with environmental regulations that help protect communities and the environment from potential exposure to hazardous waste.

The EPA cited the company for violating the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which is a federal law governing the treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste. RCRA is designed to protect public health and the environment, and avoid long and extensive cleanups, by requiring the safe, environmentally sound storage and disposal of hazardous waste.

The hazardous waste included lab solvents and corrosive cleaner waste. The EPS said the violations included:

- Storage of hazardous waste on-site in excess of the 90-day storage limitation.

- Failure to clearly label or date hazardous waste containers.

- Failure to keep hazardous waste containers closed.

- Failure to maintain job titles and descriptions for employees responsible for handling hazardous waste.

- Failure to maintain an adequate contingency plan.

- Failure to submit a timely and complete biennial report.

According to the EPA, the settlement reflects the company’s compliance efforts, and its cooperation with agency.

As part of the settlement, the company has not admitted liability, but has certified its compliance with applicable RCRA requirements.
