RCRA Annual & “thoroughly familiar” Training Requirements

40 CFR 262.16 (b)(9)(iii)
40 CFR 262.17(a)(7)

RCRA Regulatory Citations

This training course is designed to help businesses and facilities meet both the annual or “thoroughly familiar” training requirements, depending on generator size, set out in 40 CFR 262.16 (b)(9)(iii) and 40 CFR 262.17(a)(7) for generators of hazardous waste. Personnel who will generate, handle, store, treat or dispose of hazardous waste may be required to complete a RCRA training course annually.

Of interest to our clients who fall under RCRA training requirements, a new rule has come into effect this year designating aerosol cans as a universal waste. The EPA hopes that this new designation for aerosol cans will promote the collection and recycling of the cans and reduce the number being sent to landfill.
