Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Burden Reduction Initiative
Federal Register, January 17, 2002, Page 2518-2544
Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes to reduce the record keeping and reporting burden the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) imposes on the states, the public, and the regulated community. The burden reduction ideas proposed today will have no anticipated impact on the protections for human health and the environment we have established. At the same time, our proposals will eliminate non-essential paperwork.
In a Federal Register "Notice of Data Availability" published June 18, 1999, we asked for comment on an initial set of burden reduction ideas. In today's action, we are repurposing for rulemaking many of these ideas.
Written comments must be received by April 17, 2002.
If you wish to comment on this proposed rule, you must send an original and two copies of the comments referencing Docket Number F-1999-IBRA-FFFFF to: RCRA Information Center (RIC), Office of Solid Waste (5305G), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters (EPA HQ), Ariel Rios Building, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20460-0002; or, (2) if using special delivery, such as overnight express service: RIC, Crystal Gateway One, 1235 Jefferson Davis Highway, First Floor, Arlington, VA 22202.
