Title:FINANCIAL ASSURANCE OBLIGATIONS UNDER RCRA
RCRA Online Number:14543
Date:03/16/2001
To:Gillmor
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:U.S. House of Representatives
Description: The implementing agency should review a financial assurance agreement to ensure that the agreement complies with the regulations and is an enforceable document. EPA and state environmental agencies must determine whether a financial assurance provider meets the regulatory requirements, but they are not required to assess the financial viability of provider. The provider’s financial viability would be examined by another agency, such as the U.S. Treasury, which specializes in such determinations. An owner or operator who uses surety bonds to demonstrate financial assurance must use a surety that is listed as accepted in U.S. Treasury’s Circular 570.
