IPC Files Comments on EPA Regulatory Reform


Reading time ( words)

IPC filed comments with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on May 15, highlighting five EPA regulations that should be reformed:

  • Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting requirements for lead
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Hazardous Waste Generator (HWG) Improvements rule
  • RCRA Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) rule issued in 2014
  • RCRA regulations for electroplating sludge sent for recycling
  • TSCA reporting of byproducts sent for recycling

The comments were filed in response to EPA request for input on the implementation of  President Donald Trump’s February 24, 2017 Executive Order 13777 (EO 13777) on Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.

In addition to filing comments, IPC spoke at three EPA public meetings: On April 25 at the EPA Small Business Ombudsman’s meeting, a May 1 meeting hosted by the EPA Office for Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, and a May 9 meeting held by the Office of Land and Emergency Management.

EO 13777 establishes the policy of the United States to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people. Among other things, it requires each agency to create a Regulatory Reform Task Force to evaluate existing regulations and to identify regulations that could be repealed, replaced or modified to make them less burdensome.
