|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 2018, will bring the citations up to date and incorporate the 2018 annual edition of Title 40 of the CFR published on the July 1, 2018. However, the incorporation by reference of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations does not include the provisions of EPA’s Response to Vacatur of Certain Provisions of the Definition of Solid Waste Rule (83 FR 24664, 05/30/2018) as that rule is not being adopted in Virginia. Annual Update 2018 will also incorporate by reference two EPA rules promulgated after July 1, 2018: (i) Safe Management of Recalled Air Bags (83 FR 61552, 11/30/2018); and, (ii) Management of Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals and Amendment to the P075 Listing for Nicotine (84 FR 5816, 02/22/2019). 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.|
