In the fall of 2018, EPA finalized tailored and streamlined standards for
managing hazardous waste pharmaceuticals that reduce the cost and
compliance burden for the healthcare sector, while ensuring the safe
management of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals. These changes provide
regulatory certainty and national consistency on how the Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) applies to the reverse distribution of
prescription pharmaceuticals while incorporating flexibilities to
accommodate current business practices.

With this rule EPA is also taking a common-sense regulatory approach to the
disposal of Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved, over-the-counter
nicotine replacement therapies (i.e., patches, gums and lozenges), which
will no longer be considered hazardous waste when discarded.

Join us for a webinar to learn more about these regulatory changes.
