Title:Environmental Fact Sheet: EPA Finalizes Rule to Help Academic Laboratories Safely Manage Their Hazardous Waste
Document Date:11/01/2008
Description:This fact sheet discusses a final rule that adds a new subpart to the RCRA hazardous waste generator regulatory requirements for academic laboratories. The rule allows eligible academic entities flexibility in where to make hazardous waste determinations; provides incentives for eligible academic entities to clean-out old and expired chemicals that may pose unnecessary risk; and requires the development of a Laboratory Management Plan (LMP). Eligible academic entities may also choose to remain subject to the preexisting hazardous waste generator requirements. Eligible academic entities are colleges, universities, and teaching hospitals and nonprofit research institutes that are either owned by or formally affiliated with a college or university.
