Improving RIAs: Suggestions for the Analysis of Hazardous Waste Regulation - Executive Summary

This Executive Summary summarizes the results of a much longer study (see above under List of all reports in the Series) comparing the information provided in eight hazardous waste regulatory impact analyses (RIAs) to EPA guidelines for the preparation of RIAs. Results were summarized and suggestions were made for improving future RIAs. The categories for evaluation of the RIAs were the nature of the problem, regulatory alternatives analyzed, data sources used, product market impact analysis, analysis of impacts on exposure, benefits estimation, costs estimation, comparison of costs and benefits, and the RIA as a whole. The eight RIAs were for the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan, Management of Used Oil, Small Quantity Generators of Hazardous Waste, Reportable Quantity Adjustments under Sections 102 and 103 of CERCLA, RCRA Incinerator Regulations, and Land Disposal of Hazardous Wastes, Certain Dioxin-containing Wastes, and Certain Solvent Wastes.
