Reporting RCRA Corrective Action and Hazardous Waste Enforcement Actions
HQ has been reporting out RCRA cases in three categories: “RCRA Hazardous Waste,” “RCRA UST,” and “RCRA 4005.” Starting in FY 2011 a new reporting category has been added: “RCRA Corrective Action”. The primary law sections: RCRA 3008(h) and 3004(u)(v) that had been counted as part of “RCRA Hazardous Waste” will now be counted in this new corrective action category. In addition, “Corrective Action” has been added as a program choice to the following law sections: RCRA 3008(a), RCRA 3013, and RCRA 7003. When selecting the law section violated in ICIS please be careful for corrective action cases to select the RCRA law section [3008(a), RCRA 3013, or RCRA 7003] that has corrective action as the associated program.
For MY and EOY reporting purposes, the following primary law sections/programs will be counted as “Corrective Action”:
- · RCRA 3008(h),
- · RCRA 3004(u)(v),
- · RCRA 3008(a): Corrective Action,
- · RCRA 3013: Corrective Action, and
- · RCRA 7003: Corrective Action.
The law sections RCRA 3008(a), 3013, and 7003 with hazardous waste as the associated program will continue to be counted in the “RCRA Hazardous Waste,” category along with the other RCRA hazardous waste sections.
For example, a case with “RCRA 3008A: Corrective Action” selected as the primary law section program (see the first print screen below) will counted in the “RCRA Corrective Action” category. A case with “RCRA 3008A: Solid Waste Management – Subtitle C” selected as the primary law section program (see the second print screen below) will counted in the “RCRA Hazardous Waste” category.
The relevant ICIS reports will be modified to count the RCRA outputs in the four categories (Hazardous Waste, Corrective Action, UST, 4005.) To enable us to do this, a new reporting object is being added to the business objects reporting universe to enable us to segregate counts based on the program.
