Title: ●Hazardous Waste Requirements for Retail Products; Clarifying and Making the Program More Effective 
Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is exploring ways to clarify and make the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste regulations more effective for managing waste retail products. Retailers face uncertainty in managing the wide range of retail products that may become wastes if unsold, returned, or removed from shelves for inventory changes. Because of the wide range of products that can become waste, retailers find it difficult to comply with the RCRA hazardous waste regulations that were designed for manufacturing and other types of industry wastes. In response to comments submitted for the periodic retrospective review of regulations under Executive Order 13563, EPA committed to analyzing relevant information to determine what the retail RCRA issues of concern are and what options may exist for addressing the issues. This Notice of Data Availability (NODA) will: 1) present data and information EPA has gathered thus far from stakeholders and other sources; 2) request additional relevant data and information from stakeholders and the public; and 3) request comment on issues of concern for managing retail product waste and options for addressing the issues. EPA will use the information gathered thus far and additional information submitted in response to the NODA to determine possible next steps to address retail product waste issues.
