EPA’s New Hazardous Waste Pharmaceutical Rule: What to Expect and How to Comply

Live Webinar: Wednesday November 14, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Understand how the new hazardous waste pharmaceutical rule will impact your business operations and what you’ll need to do to comply and avoid fines.

ALERT: Changes to the 2015 Management Standards for Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals are coming in October 2018.

The EPA issued its proposed Management Standards for Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals in September 2015, under new subpart P of 40 CFR Part 266 for the management of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals by health care facilities and pharmaceutical reverse distributors. The complexity of the proposed rule has been a factor in it taking over two years for the EPA to finalize its provisions.

One of the biggest changes in the proposed rule, scheduled to become final in October 2018, is that health care facilities, such as pharmacies, hospitals, physicians’ offices, and long-term care facilities, will be subject to simpler, less stringent hazardous waste regulations while pharmaceutical reverse distributors are likely to be subject to much heavier regulation than in the past.

As proposed, the rule also distinguished between creditable and non-creditable hazardous waste pharmaceuticals, with a non-creditable hazardous waste pharmaceutical being a pharmaceutical that is notexpected to be eligible for manufacturer’s credit. 

Join us on November 14 for an in-dept and informative webinar led by attorneys Greg Blount and Karlie Webb. They will carefully assess the rule requirements and discuss the implications of the final rule on both health care facilities and pharmaceutical reverse distributors. 

Attending this webinar will:

  • Eliminate the confusion associated with the numerous new requirements of the final hazardous waste pharmaceuticals rule
  • Provide tips to enable you to comply with the new rule
  • Clarify how the new rule will impact your business 
  • Enhance your understanding of the implications for retailers and reverse distributors
  • Inform you of the reactions to the final rule from industry professionals|
  • Decrease the likelihood of making the common errors involved in any new set of rules
