EPA Alerts Proposed Rules

September 25, 2015: (NPRM) Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements

The EPA is requesting revisions to the current hazardous materials regulations in an effort to improve compliance which would, in turn, enhance protection of the environment and public health. The proposed changes include revisions to certain components of the current hazardous waste generator regulatory program, addressing gaps in the regulations, reorganize the regulations so they are easier to read and more user friendly, increase the flexibility for hazardous waste generators in an effort to allow them to manage the hazardous waste in a more protective and cost effective manner, and remove references to discontinued programs.
Interested parties may submit comments on this proposal until November 24, 2015.
