Title: ●Facilitating Safe Management of Recalled Airbags 
Abstract:

In order to address the urgent public health issue posed by recalled Takata airbag inflators that are currently installed in vehicles, EPA is developing an interim final rule. In this rulemaking, EPA intends to facilitate the speed and efficiency of the Takata airbag recall by exempting the collection of defective airbags and airbag inflators from auto dealers and scrap yards from hazardous waste requirements, so long as certain conditions are met to ensure the airbags and airbag inflators are safely disposed.
