Annual Update 2021
Action 5865
General Information
Action Summary The Virginia Hazardous Waste Management Regulations, 9VAC20-60, include citations and requirements in the form of federal regulatory text at Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) which is incorporated by reference. This regulatory amendment, Annual Update 2021, will bring the citations up to date and incorporate the 2021 Annual edition of Title 40 of the CFR published on July 1, 2021. However, the incorporation by reference of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations does not include the provisions of EPA’s Increasing Recycling: Adding Aerosol Cans to the Universal Waste Regulations which will be added during a future regulatory update. In addition to the conforming changes incorporating the EPA rules, other changes have been made in order to correct citations, update nomenclature, and fix grammatical errors. Sections 2.2-4006 A 3 and A 4 (c) of the Code of Virginia allows the Board to adopt this regulatory amendment to 9VAC20-60 as a final exempt action as the changes are necessary to correct technical errors and to conform to changes in the federal regulations.
