Organization of Recipient:U.S. House of Representatives
Description: EPA can require combustion facilities to perform indirect exposure risk assessments under the omnibus authority (Section 3005(c)(3)). EPA does not require the use of a particular risk assessment model. In order to invoke the omnibus authority, EPA must show that additional requirements are necessary to protect human health and the environment. Discusses the scope and limitations of the omnibus provision. The Combustion Strategy does not impose regulatory requirements and is not subject to notice and comment. Discusses EPA rationale for targeting hazardous waste combustors under the Combustion Strategy. Facilities can challenge requests to perform a risk assessment (SEE ALSO: 61 FR 17358, 17371; 4/19/96).
