Action is Exempt from Article 2 of the Administrative Process Act
Annual Update 2014
Action 4320
General Information
Action Summary The Virginia Hazardous Waste Management Regulations, 9VAC20-60, include citations and requirements in the form of incorporated federal regulatory text at Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This regulatory amendment will bring these citations up to date and incorporate the latest Title 40 of the CFR to the one as published in the July 1, 2014 update. As part of this regulatory action, the Board is adopting EPA’s Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Rule (e-Manifest Rule) which was promulgated on February 7, 2014 (79 FR 7518). However, Annual Update 2014 will not incorporate the subdivisions of the e-Manifest Rule which impose a possible fee which may be collected by EPA for use of the manifest system. EPA has indicated that they will promulgate a subsequent rule which will provide the user fee schedule and compliance date for use of the e-manifest system which is still in development. Therefore, this regulatory action will not include the provisions for imposition of a user fee by EPA. Section 2.2-4006 A 4 (c) of the Code of Virginia allows the Board to adopt this regulatory amendment to 9VAC20-60 as the changes are necessary to conform to changes in the federal regulations. This regulatory amendment will be effective 30 days after publication in the Virginia Register.
