Only schedules approved for use by the National Archives and Records Administration are included here. Draft schedules [EPA only] are available on the intranet.

These schedules apply to records owned by and in the custody of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. EPA schedules do not apply to records required by EPA's regulations that are owned and maintained by individuals, businesses, and non-EPA organizations. Record retention requirements for the regulated community are found in the Federal Register and Code of Federal Regulations.
