HAZARDOUS WASTE IDENTIFICATION RULE PROPOSED

EPA is proposing changes to its regulations under Subtitle C of the
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act by revising the "mixture and derived
from" rules. The mixture and derived from rules ensure that hazardous
wastes that are mixed with other wastes or treated do not escape regulation
as long as they are reasonably likely to continue to pose threats to human
health and the environment. This proposal also includes a discussion of two
regulatory options for self-implementing concentration-based exemptions: a
generic exemption and a landfill-only exemption. In addition, this proposal
also discusses the possibility of revising the land disposal restrictions
by replacing technology-based treatment standards with risk-based treatment
standards. The proposed rule is expected to be published in the Federal
Register in late November and will be available at
http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/hazwaste/id/ or from the RCRA Hotline at
1-800-424-9346 or 703-412-9810. An unofficial pre-print of the rule is
available at http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/hazwaste/id/hwirwste.htm.
