Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Compliance Monitoring

RCRA Topics

To protect human health and the environment, EPA works with its federal, state, and tribal regulatory partners to assure compliance with statutes and regulations in the management of hazardous wastes and underground storage tanks. The major federal law governing proper management of these wastes and units is the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Most of the compliance monitoring responsibility under RCRA is delegated to the states and local authorities. EPA provides oversight of compliance monitoring activities in the RCRA program to ensure facilities are properly inspected.

RCRA encompasses several different program areas. They include:

Compliance Assistance | Compliance Monitoring | Compliance Incentives
