Hazardous Waste Databases

Public Access Databases are available that identify facilities, sites or places that must comply with environmental regulations. They incorporate information from program national systems, state facility records, EPA's Central Data Exchange registrations, and data management personnel.

·Envirofacts provides the public with access to U.S. EPA environmental data affecting air, water, and land anywhere in the United States. With Envirofacts, you can learn about environmental activities in your area or you can generate maps containing environmental information.

·ECHO -- Enforcement and Compliance History Online provides the public with data about facility compliance status and EPA/State enforcement of environmental regulations. The following environmental statutes are included: Clean Air Act (CAA) Stationary Source Program, Clean Water Act (CWA) National Pollutant Elimination Discharge System (NPDES), and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Restricted Access Databases are available to EPA, state, tribal, and territorial implementers.

RCRAInfo is EPA's comprehensive RCRA information system that provides access to data supporting the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976 and the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) of 1984. It is available only to EPA, state, tribal, and territorial implementers. RCRAInfo replaces the data recording and reporting abilities of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Information System (RCRIS) and the Biennial Reporting System (BRS).

·RCRAInfo Production is the official database where an Implementer of Record officially enters hazardous waste data. Only authorized EPA and state personnel have access to this database.

·RCRAInfo Pre-production is the test database that is used for training, practice, and testing of new versions of RCRAInfo, and verifying translator data loads. Only authorized EPA and state personnel have access to this database.

OTIS -- The Online Tracking Information System (OTIS) is a collection of search engines that enables EPA staff, state/local/tribal governments, and federal agencies to access a wide range of data relating to enforcement and compliance.

IDEA -- The Integrated Data for Enforcement Analysis (IDEA) system provides environmental performance data on EPA-regulated facilities to authorized users. IDEA maintains copies of the Agency's air, water, hazardous waste, and enforcement data systems that are updated monthly.
