Assessment Topic

The Regulatory Impact Analysis attempted to compare the costs to the benefits expected to result from the implementation of standards and guidelines. The cost and economic impact discussion is a summary of information from the "Analysis of Economic Impacts" Reports (EPA-453/R-94-047a and EPA-453/R-94-048a). A qualitative discussion of relevant benefit categories such as reduced adverse health and welfare effects is presented. Due to lack of data regarding the benefits associated with reducing specific pollutants, only a few benefit categories were quantified. Therefore, a direct comparison of costs to benefits was not possible. This report is one in a series of reports used as background information in developing air emission standards and guidelines for new and existing medical waste incinerators.
