Are you a hazardous waste generator? How will the EPA's updates to the Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule affect your business? Could your company be at risk for noncompliance?

The U.S. EPA published the anticipated Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Final Rule in November, 2016. This regulation affects all hazardous waste generators regardless of size, in any industry or geographical location governed by the United States. The Federal effective date is May 30, 2017.

EPA's Final Rule on Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements revises and updates the hazardous waste generator regulations. It 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.
