New HWGIR Contingency Plan Requirements

April 2, 2019

Some of the sections of the hazardous waste management regulations that are impacted by the new provisions of the HWGIR include those pertaining to Preparedness & Prevention and Contingency Plans for LQGs and SQGs. These changes are found in §262.16 of 40 CFR for SQGs and in §262.17 and §262 Subpart M of 40 CFR for LQGs. The Agency views some of these changes to be more stringent than, less stringent than, and new (or clarifications/strengthening) of the previous provisions of the RCRA regulations.
