Title: Hazardous Waste Technical Corrections and Clarifications Rule 
Abstract: On March 18, 2010, EPA published a Direct Final Rule (Hazardous Waste Technical Corrections and Clarifications Rule) that promulgated a number of amendments to the hazardous waste regulations for hazardous waste identification, manifesting, the generator requirements, as well as changes to the hazardous waste permit and interim status standards. These changes corrected existing errors in the hazardous waste regulations that have occurred over time as a result of typographical errors or incorrect citations to paragraphs and other references. On June 16, 2010, all of the amendments to the Direct Final Rule went into effect, except for six amendments which were withdrawn (June 4, 2010) because adverse comments were received. The planned final rule will address the six withdrawn amendments by responding to the adverse comments received and finalizing the appropriate changes.
