Title:APPLICABILITY OF THE OMNIBUS AUTHORITY AND SITE SPECIFIC RISK ASSESSMENTS TO WASTE MINIMIZATION AND COMBUSTION STRATEGY
RCRA Online Number:14040
Date:02/26/1996
To:Emerson
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:U.S. House of Representatives
Description: The use of omnibus authority (Section 3005(c)(3)) in implementing the Combustion Strategy is consistent with the original intent of the statute and regulations. The strategy does not impose regulatory requirements, but is statement of policy. Under the omnibus authority, EPA requires a site-specific risk assessment at hazardous waste combustion facilities prior to permit determination because combustion regulations do not fully account for indirect exposure pathways (SEE ALSO: 61 FR 17358, 17371; 4/19/96).
