EPA - Environmental Protection Agency

ChemView - This new database improves access to health and safety data on chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

Laws and Regulations - Several laws and the regulations developed to implement them are the foundation of EPA's Emergency Management Program.

RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) Regulations - These are contained in 40 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) parts 239 to 282.  Hazardous waste (cradle-to-grave) rules are contained in parts 260 to 265.

RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) Online is an electronic database that indexes thousands of letters, memoranda, publications, and questions and answers issued by EPA's Office of Solid Waste (OSW). These documents represent past EPA Headquarters interpretations of the RCRA regulations governing the management of solid, hazardous, and medical waste.

Hazardous Waste Generated at Laboratories - The Academic Laboratory Rule was developed to help improve the environmental performance of teaching and research laboratores owned by eligible academic entities that are LQG (large quantity generators), SGQ (small quantity generators) or CESQG (conditionally exempt small quantity generators.

Comparing the Academic Laboratories Rule to the Satellite Accumulation Area Regulations - This presentation does an excellent job at comparing the SAA rules with the new Subpart K rules. Additional states have adopted Subpart K since the creation of this PowerPoint, so check with your local government agency to see if your institution is eligible.
