IPC Offers Comments at EPA Public Meetings on Regulatory Reform


Reading time ( words)

IPC is commenting on its members’ behalf at three Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) public meetings on regulatory reform. The meetings are being held to gather input on the implementation of President Donald Trump’s February 24, 2017 Executive Order 13777 (EO 13777) on Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda. 

IPC spoke on April 25 at the EPA Small Business Ombudsman’s meeting regarding two regulations that are particularly burdensome for small businesses: Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting requirements for lead and the recently issued Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Hazardous Waste Generator (HWG) Improvements rule. 

Regulatory Affairs Director, Fern Abrams, discusses regulatory reform issues at EPA Small Business Ombudsman’s meeting on April 25.

At the May 1 meeting hosted by the EPA Office for Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, IPC again highlighted concerns with the TRI rule, and IPC’s testimony at the upcoming Office of Land and Emergency Management will focus on the RCRA Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) rule issued in 2014, and the RCRA HWG Improvements. 

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to create a Regulatory Reform Task Force to evaluate existing regulations and to identify regulations that could be repealed, replaced or modified to make them less burdensome. 

IPC will also be filing written comments before the May 15, 2017 deadline. Members interested in filing comments should visit the EPA docket.
