Title: Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule 
Abstract:

This rule would make various changes to the hazardous waste generator regulatory program to improve its clarity and effectiveness. One improvement under consideration would consolidate all of the hazardous waste generator regulations, where appropriate, in Part 262 of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Another possible improvement would require small and large quantity generators to include additional information on container labels to better communicate risks associated with its contents. In order to provide generators with greater flexibility in complying with the RCRA regulations, another improvement under consideration would allow generators to maintain their regulatory status even though, because of an episodic event, they moved into a higher regulatory status temporarily. This improvement would allow episodic generators to follow streamlined requirements that are fully protective of human health and the environment.
