Last week, US EPA put forth three TSCA-related actions you should know about if you manufature, process, or use chemicals on the TSCA Inventory: New user fees to defray the costs of Lautenberg Law-required risk evaluations, the withdrawal of Significant New Use Rules for 145 chemicals, and preparations for the next 73 chemical risk evaluations EPA must complete.
In some ways, it was the most significant new regulation for hazardous waste in the 21st century. In other ways, all it did was rearrange old stuff into a more convenient, intuitive order. Here we break down one of most subtle, yet impactful, changes for hazardous waste generators in US EPA’s Generator Improvements Rule.
In late June 2018, US EPA finalized a rulemaking to require manufacturers, importers, distributors, and users of mercury and mercury-added products to report to EPA about their activities.
By July 1, 2018 (this Sunday), some employers must electronically submit OSHA Form 300A using the Agency’s new online Injury Tracking Application. Only information from employers’ 2017 OSHA Form 300A is due.
If you're not up to speed on electronic hazardous waste manifests, the time to learn is now: EPA will officially unveil the e-manifest system on June 30, 2018. That leaves just 25 days (18 business days!) to prepare for the new system and how it will impact your facility.
US EPA today proposed an extension of an “information collection request,” or ICR, that requires hazardous waste generators, contractors, and others to keep records related to the recycling of hazardous secondary materials.
On February 7, US EPA released a long-awaited TSCA draft rulemaking to implement user fees for chemical manufacturers to control the costs of EPA’s work to evaluate and regulate chemicals in the US.
Even if you’ve submitted Biennial Reports for decades, keep reading. There is at least one new requirement that may trip up generators in some states who are not familiar with the latest changes to RCRA regulation.
To accurately categorize workplace injuries that must be reported under OSHA regulations, employers need to understand the difference between "medical treatment" and "first aid."
Reminder: TSCA “reset reports” are due to EPA by February 7, 2018. Under the so-called TSCA Reset Rule, manufacturers and processors must submit a one-time retrospective notice to indicate which of the 85,000 chemicals on the Inventory they manufactured or imported in a ten-year period from June 21, 2006 to June 21, 2016.
