On November 8, 1984, the President signed into law the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA). This new statute makes many changes to EPA's existing hazardous waste management program. The purpose of this rule is to amend EPA's existing hazardous waste regulations to reflect those statutory provisions that have immediate or short-term effects on the regulated community. This rule also adds Part 280 to the EPA regulations to incorporate the interim prohibition of new section 9003(g), added by the 1984 Amendments.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
