EPA is Seeking Feedback on Reducing Regulatory Burden

Welcome to a special announcement from TechDirect: EPA is Seeking Feedback on Reducing Regulatory Burden

TechDirect’s purpose is to identify new technical, policy and guidance resources related to the assessment and remediation of contaminated soil, sediments and groundwater.

Mention of non-EPA documents or presentations does not constitute a U.S. EPA endorsement of their contents, only an acknowledgment that they exist and may be relevant to the TechDirect audience.


EPA is Soliciting Recommendations on Regulations that could be Repealed, Replaced or Modified to make them Less Burdensome


Dear Interested Parties,

On February 24, 2017, President Donald Trump issued Executive Order 13777 on Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda. The order establishes the policy of the United States to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people. Among other things, it requires each agency to create a Regulatory Reform Task Force to evaluate existing regulations and to identify regulations that could be repealed, replaced or modified to make them less burdensome.


As part of implementing the order, EPA is soliciting public comments and engaging in additional outreach to identify such regulations. We will be accepting comments through May 15, 2017 at docket EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190. Go to https://www.epa.gov/laws-regulations/regulatory-reform to learn more about this effort.


In addition, EPA?s Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM), will host a public meeting to obtain additional stakeholder feedback on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, from 9:00am to 5:00pm EDT in Arlington, Virginia.  The intent of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for interested parties to present recommendations specific to OLEM?s regulations. Please see https://www.epa.gov/rcra/office-land-and-emergency-management-seeking-feedback-reducing-regulatory-burden on how you can submit comments and participate in or listen to the OLEM public meeting.  For more information on OLEM programs, please see https://www.epa.gov/aboutepa/about-office-land-and-emergency-management.


In our attempt to maximize public outreach, you may be receiving this email multiple times.


Thank you in advance for your interest. We look forward to your participation in this important effort.
