On July 07, 2020 (85 FR 40594), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule in the federal register updating its regulations in 40 CFR Parts 63, 260, 261 and 278 for the identification of ignitable hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and to modernize the RCRA test methods that currently require the use of mercury thermometers. These revisions provide greater clarity to hazardous waste identification, provide flexibility in testing requirements, improve environmental compliance, and, thereby, enhance protection of human health and the environment. This final rule is effective on September 8, 2020. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of September 8, 2020.
