Federal Register Notice: Final Codification Rule for the 1984 Amendments to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)

This rule is a companion to EPA's final rule of July 15, 1985, which codified requirements specified by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA) that took effect immediately or shortly after enactment (see volume 50 of the Federal Register page 28702). This rule codifies further changes to the existing regulations which implement the HSWA provisions relating to corrective action and permitting for RCRA facilities. This rule also includes provisions to implement the statutory requirements pertaining to corrective action for releases beyond the facility boundary, and to corrective action for hazardous waste injection wells.
