There has been a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation regarding this new rule. As a result, many contractors have admitted that they are confused and lack clarity about how the RRP Rule will affect their work practices and business operations. Their concerns are valid and easily justified. Just one fine of $37,500 can easily put honest and hard working contractors out of business.
Although attempts may be made to verify and or improve the accuracy of the information on this site, the content of this site is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as legal advice or EPA approved interpretation(s) of the final EPA RRP Rule. To further complicate things, some states and tribal authorities have been granted and or are seeking authorization by the EPA to administer the RRP program. If you know of differences between the EPA rule and those of individual states or tribal authorities, please contribute that information along with a source/link to confirm accuracy.
