Standards Applicable to Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities - Financial Responsibility for Third-Party Liability, Closure, and Post-Closure - Federal Register Notice, September 16, 1992

EPA is amending its financial assurance requirements under subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

On July 1, 1991 (56 FR 30201), the Agency proposed several amendments to the regulations related to third-party liability coverage, namely, the claims reporting provision and the provisions for obtaining a letter of credit.

The Agency proposed to expand the use of the non-parent corporate guarantee to owners and operators of hazardous waste facilities for demonstrating financial responsibility for closure and post-closure care. In this action the Agency is promulgating those changes.
