Regulatory Analysis Of The Resource Conservation And Recovery Act, Subtitle C.
As a regult of numerous comments subsequent to the proposal of RCRA Section 3004 regulations in December 1978 (see S.79.1), EPA concluded that more study and analysis is required to develop and support many of the national "technical" standards which will prescribe the design and construction of facilities. EPA chose, therefore, to promulgate the regulations in phases. Phase I includes primarily the requirements for facilities during the interim status period (between the effective date of the regulations and final action on a permit.
This RIA covers not only the regulations promulgated in this action (Phase I), but also two previously promulgated regulations: the requirements for generators under Part 263, and the notification procedure under Section 3010 of RCRA. The general status standards for facilities (Part 264) will be covered by a separate analysis which will accompany the Phase II regulations.
