Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule (Final)
Nov. 28, 2016
EPA has finalized revisions to the RCRA hazardous waste generator regulatory program proposed on 25 September 2015. These revisions include reorganizing the hazardous waste generator regulations to make them more user-friendly and thus improve their usability by the regulated community; providing a better understanding of how the RCRA hazardous waste generator regulatory program works; addressing gaps in the existing regulations to strengthen environmental protection; providing greater flexibility for hazardous waste generators to manage their hazardous waste in a cost-effective and protective manner; and making technical corrections and conforming changes to address inadvertent errors and remove obsolete references to programs that no longer exist. This final rule is effective on 30 May 2017. POC is Jim O'Leary, U.S. EPA, Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery, (MC: 5304P), 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460, 703-308-8827, oleary.jim@epa.gov (Federal Register; 28 November 2016 [Rules and Regulations], pages 85732-85829).
