In summary, the improvements made
in DAO 2013-22 are:

1. Additional terminologies related to emergency


response and preparedness were identified and
defined.

2. The classification of hazardous wastes is updated


to include, among others, Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE), vegetable oil, and
special wastes under RA 9003.

3. Waste generators are classified into small,


medium and large generators depending on the
volume and type of wastes generated.
In summary, the improvements made
in DAO 2013-22 are:

4. The use of an on-line manifest system is


introduced to strengthen tracking and monitoring
of hazardous wastes.

4. Categories of Treatment, Storage and Disposal


(TSD) facilities are updated to include Materials
Recovery Facilities (MRFs).

6. Minimum considerations for siting and post-


closure of TSD facilities are included.
In summary, the improvements made
in DAO 2013-22 are:

7. Chapters on Contingency Program, Personnel
