This final rule revises and updates the hazardous waste generator regulations. This rule is designed to make regulations easier to understand and to provide greater flexibility and explains how hazardous waste is managed in order to fit today's business activities. The revisions are also designed to protect the public by improving facility safety as it relates to hazardous waste generation and management. Further the rule improves the capabilities of the emergency responders by improving risk communication. The new rule responds to feedback from the regulatory community such as the federal regulators who implement the requirements, state agencies that also implemented the requirements and other stakeholders. All of this represents a significant investment in time and energy that resulted in many challenges in the EPA hazardous waste generator program. The new biennial reporting requirements, to be satisfied on 1 March 2018 will be addressed as part of this webinar.
