RCRA Subparts AA–CC Compliance References

When Congress passed the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments in 1984, it directed EPA to determine if there were excessive organic air emissions from equipment in hazardous waste service and, if so, to promulgate regulations to control them. EPA did the study, found excessive organic emissions, and issued the regulations by adding Subparts AA, BB, and CC to Parts 264 and 265. Thus, permitted and interim status TSD facilities are subject to these standards. Large quantity generators are also subject to these air emission standards, even though they are not required to have a RCRA permit.

We’ve compiled a list of online references available to aid affected facilities in their compliance with Part 264/265, Subparts AA, BB, and CC.
