Compliance Archives - April 2018
4/30/2018In the Federal Register on April 30, US EPA proposed a rule to require “pivotal regulatory science” data used for regulatory decision-making be available to the public “in a manner sufficient for independent validation.”
4/23/2018EPA’s Generator Improvements Rule took effect on May 30, 2017. US states have 1 to 2 years from that date to adopt updates to the hazardous waste regulations. EPA has made available a list on its website with relatively up-to-date information regarding states’ plans to adopt the Generator Improvements Rule.
4/20/2018Like professionals in many industries, dangerous goods pros can earn industry-specific certifications that demonstrate their expertise and commitment to hazardous materials safety. While these certifications are not required to ship, manage, or transport hazardous materials, many professionals earn and maintain them to display their expertise and improve their career prospects.
4/20/2018The “derived-from” rule—found at 40 CFR 262.3(c)(2)(i)—states that, unless excluded, a waste generated from the treatment, storage, or disposal of a listed hazardous waste is also a hazardous waste. The derived-from rule intends to prevent generators and TSDFs from circumventing the land disposal restriction requirements that apply to a waste the moment it’s generated.
