Transmittal memorandum and model language provisions addressing financial assurance in the section 3008(h) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) administrative order on consent (AOC). Issued 2/8/2006.

The 2006 FA language is incorporated into the 2016 revised model RCRA § 3008(h) AOC with minor typographical corrections as Section XV (Financial Assurance).
