This webinar will help you to understand how the federal hazardous waste regulations may impact your operations and how you can develop a compliance strategy. The federal hazardous waste regulations promulgated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act have been in effect for decades, however, new businesses or businesses who have recently changed their operations may now be required to comply or risk significant penalties for non-compliance.
