Title:USE OF THE SITE-SPECIFIC RISK ASSESSMENT POLICY AND GUIDANCE FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE COMBUSTION FACILITIES
RCRA Online Number:14663
Date:04/10/2003
To:Regional Administrators
From:Horinko
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: EPA reiterates the appropriate use of the hazardous waste combustion site-specific risk assessment (SSRA) policy and the omnibus authority as it relates to the SSRA. SSRAs and technical guidance are not regulatory requirements. The SSRA policy was revised (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 52828, 52839; 9/30/99). SSRAs should only be required at facilities where there is reason to believe that operation in accordance with technical standards alone may not be protective. Permitting agencies should document the basis for a SSRA decision in the permit. Only the omnibus authority can require SSRAs. The permitting agency must respond to comments filed on a draft permit objecting to a SSRA and base its response on technical, factual, or legal facts. The permitting agency must include all supporting documentation, including comments, for a permit in the administrative record.
