Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (Section 610 Review), November 22, 1999
The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires federal agencies to assess a proposed regulation's impact on small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions. Section 610 of that law also requires these agencies to conduct periodic reviews of codified regulations that have significant economic impacts on small entities. This review, commonly called a "610 Review," must be conducted by a rule's tenth anniversary. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides public notice of 610 Reviews in its Regulatory Agenda, which is published twice a year in the Federal Register.
All aspects of the Criteria, including those applicable to large landfills, were open for comment from all interested parties. The comment period closed February 29, 2000.
