About This Course:
Over the past year, maximum civil penalties for RCRA hazardous waste generation violations have doubled from $37,500 to $70,117 per violation, per day. That’s a significant increase of over $30,00!

While the EPA may consider mitigating factors such as severity of the offense and a company’s compliance efforts, the potential fines organizations face could still be crippling given the recent increase, which went into effect in August 2016.

And, if your company is a hazardous waste generator, the possibilities for RCRA violations are almost endless. The EPA could come at you from many angles to assess penalties and fines, from fining you for the containers, tanks, and chemicals being used to scrutinizing your recordkeeping and training practices.

One of the best ways to minimize the risk of facing steep penalties for RCRA hazardous waste violations is to become educated on the types of policies and practices that lead EPA inspections to cite a company. By looking closely at these violations and adding them to your hazardous waste generation inspection and audit processes, you’ll be better prepared to reduce your compliance risks and avoid crippling fines.
